As a caregiver, you have many responsibilities to accomplish in any given day including shopping for groceries and/or other caregiving materials. Creating smaller personal communities for various tasks can balance your life as well as give more focused care for your loved ones.
For example, you can create a personal community for Community Shopping for Caregivers by including CareXc members to:
Coordinate days/times to go shopping together
Mark your availabilities if you are going shopping and are willing to pick up some items for other CareXc members
See who is available to pick up some items or food for you
Additional tips: Sometimes, there are local events that have exactly the same goal as yours in caring for your loved ones.
For example: Albertsons Supermarket has an ongoing event to teach people to purchase the right grocery for people living with Diabetes. You should piggy-back this type of events into your personal community to leverage your local community support.
Since you are the main organizer of this "event". You would need to have a team of people with whom you can carry this event out.
By sign/up or sign/in to CareXchange application for loved ones, you can form your own team both to go to event together as well as supporting each other in caregiving tasks:
Find the members who are living nearby you or having similar care experience using Your Plans and Team.
Contact them and invite them to join your shopping group.
See if you can bring some items for them or if they would like to go with you every time you need to go shopping.
Or if you need certain item, you can see if anyone in your team is going for shopping and can bring some items for you.
You can also organize a weekly shoping date using the availabilty schedule of the members on the Team Details page.
