Thoughts to ponder

Occasionally we find something potentially useful to share with others, especially regarding integrity, transparency, and accountability in the field of services. Health care, elder care, child care, pet care, home maintenance, lawn care, property management. The common theme is that people do things for other people millions of times every day. And today more than ever, we need to share what we learn with each other.

REVISED: How to approach your helpers about monitoring their work

One of the things I hear quite frequently from people considering TaskAssure is: 

"Even though I want better information about tasks being performed for me, I am concerned that my helper will be offended if I ask them to let me monitor their work with TaskAssure. How can I approach them?"

After talking with so many people on the subject, I hope you will find this article useful when considering how to handle this potentially challenging situation.

As you know, that's a problem that TaskAssure solves (very well, we think!). In this brief article, I will share five no-cost ideas we have seen people use. 

Supreme Court rules against SEIU on in-home caregiving case - a WIN for common sense!

Supreme Court rules against SEIU on in-home caregiving case - a WIN for common sense!

[June 30, 2014 1000 EDT] The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) today released its decision on a landmark case concerning whether or not people acting as caregivers (including family members of children with disabilities) can be forced to pay union dues, solely because they receive caregiving funds from the State. Since I am generally in favor of transparency and accountability, I applaud the SCOTUS decision as a win for common sense. 

VA scandal => the ultimate outcome for lack of transparency and accountability

With all the reports in recent weeks regarding the many veterans that were denied care (report: 120,000 veterans on wait list for more than 90 days) and those that died waiting (report: veterans die waiting for care), I can't help speaking up that we simply must acknowledge the bad outcomes large bureaucracies seem to be capable of and even promote.
