No matter what industry you may be working in, there will undoubtedly be tools out there to help increase efficiency and administrative processes. Lifestyle Management is no different. In this blog, we assess a lifestyle manager’s needs and how technology solutions can facilitate their role in the care ecosystem.
So what is a Lifestyle Manager?
Lifestyle Managers support positive ageing and are responsible for managing, organising and maintaining activities and experiences for the residents of aged care facilities and retirement villages. As a manager, their daily tasks would include developing, scheduling, implementing, updating a lifestyle program, budgeting, calendar management, risk and compliance management, accurate documentation, and collaboration with other care teams.
To provide high-quality care, Lifestyle Managers can use tools to facilitate their role. Here is a list of some of the features which help Lifestyle Managers.
Digital Concierge Platform
One of CareVision’s mission for the aged care sector is to reduce social isolation within retirement living, home care communities and residential aged care facilities. With CareVision’s Digital Concierge Platform, we aim to promote more vibrant communities by giving your residents easy access to communicate with their neighbors, family and friends, managers and care providers; encourage them to participate in social events and other recreational activities. Constant community engagement increases the clients well-being and overall health.
CareVision also helps streamline requests services and operations to promote additional services to your residents. And to further improve work request and centralised concierge assistance in the organisation with the digital concierge platform. This will help lifestyle managers improve the residents’ lifestyle programs and monitor progress within their services and operation.
CareVision also offers smart and fast scheduling in the platform that is easy-to-use and has an excellent interface for carers and lifestyle managers to boost their services.
By using the platform, staff members and clients can arrange and adjust their schedules while on the go and schedule all their required services for their residential aged care or retirement living accommodation. Enabled auto-scheduling and recommended carers for each booking services will make it easier to organise day-to-day programs.
The application’s recommendations are based on skills, qualifications, client ratings and previous service with the client. This will lead to a better rapport with the client and the lifestyle manager or care provider and ensure effective time management for the organisation’s staff. Another advantage of the smart scheduling feature is the travel calculations for the team. With this feature, the carers’ route and time travel will be calculated to avoid overlapping schedules and delay services.
