I. Why use zelar?
As a caregiver for a person with dementia are you struggling to understand the condition? Are you constantly trying to provide support for your loved one but don’t really know how or what to do? Do you simply feel overwhelmed and stressed most of the time? If yes, zelar can help. At zelar we are taking a comprehensive view to managing dementia care and equipping the caregiver with evidence-based tools to make caregiving more effective and less stressful.

II. What does zelar do for me as a caregiver?

• zelar helps you stay motivated to reach the care goals you and your loved ones have setup
• Reduce stress of caregiving by gaining control of your day
• Enjoy more ‘good days’ with your loved one
• Take better care of yourself

III. How does zelar work?

The app brings the latest evidence and research in dementia care management techniques to the hands of caregivers. With zelar you can:
• Design a balanced plan of care that incorporates your family’s care goals
• Schedule your activities and medications, get timely reminders and improve adherence
• Make detailed observations of your loved one’s condition quickly and easily, and then observe or share trends with your healthcare provider
• Get detailed insights on how well you and your loved one are working towards the care goals and get tips and information on improving
• Collaborate with other caregivers and family members to support you in your caregiving role – get help when you need it most
• Take care of yourself with your own plan of care

Design a balanced plan of care
Create a plan of care that incorporates physical activities (walking etc.), cognitive activities (puzzles etc.), social stimulation (going to adult day care centres etc.) and mindfulness (meditation etc.)

Schedule your activities and medications
As you add items to your care plan zelar automatically schedules them into your daily calendar. As a caregiver you can quickly see what your day looks like and ensure you have enough time to plan for things that need to be done.

Make detailed observations
Use zelar’s Journal to document your observations of your loved one’s condition including mood, sleep and other events or episodes. Write your diary in your own words. And then use zelar to accurately convey day to day events to your healthcare professionals.

Get Insights
zelar tracks all your medications and activities. Using simple to read graphs the app shows how well your medication adherence has been and the levels of various activities performed. The app provides regular tips – bite size chunks of curated information that help you understand critical aspects of care and get to know evidence-backed best practices to adopt while caring for somebody with dementia.

Collaborate with other caregivers
Every caregiver needs a break, frequently! Getting respite or temporary caregivers to step in for you requires you to effectively communicate your loved one’s care needs and plan. With zelar – that is a breeze! All you need to do is add a secondary caregiver and they get instant access to the care plan and schedule. No more fumbling with paper or handwritten notes for your respite caregivers.

Take care of yourself
Perhaps the most important aspect of being a caregiver for somebody with dementia is the need for taking care of your own health. zelar makes it really easy for you to take care of yourself by creating a new profile – your own – through which you can design your own plan of care and then keep on top of it with your own daily calendar.
