Caring for Those Who Care

Caring for Those Who Care

As a caregiver, you are committed to looking after a family member or friend. You have become the most important person in their life. And what you do for them each day is essential. It takes courage and a lot of heart. But it also takes a toll. That’s where Seniorlink & Caregiver Homes can make a difference. We know what you are going through. And we can help.

Real Support for Caregivers

Support starts with your care team. Real people who know your story — and know how to help.
Not just an automated system or recorded message.

Your caregiver coach is a guide. You can lean on them and learn from them. They can help you:

Real Support for Caregivers

Answer questions about your loved one’s needs

Get clinical guidance and find local resources

Advocate for your loved one with care providers

Cope with setbacks and challenges

Celebrate good days and little victories

Your coach listens when things get tough and lifts you up when you feel down. So every day, you become more comfortable and more confident.

Using the Best Tech to Connect

You will always have a direct link to your caregiver coach through Vela, our online app. It is easy to access, easy to use, and HIPAA secure. If you are comfortable using a smartphone, tablet, or computer, you will be comfortable with Vela.
  • Use the chat feature to ask questions and share notes with your coach.
  • Access education resources stored in your Vela resource center.
  • Upload files and save important documents, like copies of insurance cards.
