Care Zone is an app that users can access in order for them to store and provide visibility to important things about those that they care for- be it a child, relative or elder. The app helps coordinate families and helpers so that all pertinent information is available at their fingertips. Emergencies can happen unexpectedly, and Care Zone enables people to have access to this information stored on their cloud from anywhere, from any device. All information that is stored on the Care Zone cloud is private and protected so families can feel secure about saving that info through this app. Families can track a journal, they can lock their notes and they can list medications and emergency contacts. Care Zone is all about keeping families organized and empowered with the information that they need in order to care for their family and loved ones effectively.Show more screenshots »
Care Zone launched in February 2012. It is backed by investments and subscription revenues. At the lead for the company, is their CEO and founder Jonathan Scwartz who was previously the CEO of Sun Microsystems. CareZone has a presence in San Francisco and Seattle. Care Zone has been featured in Times, Forbes and other media outlets.
The main thing that makes Care Zone different is that they are not funded by advertising revenue or from sharing information about their users to others. Instead they are backed by the subscriptions of users and the support of investors. The feeling of being safe and sound and having the control to share this vital information with specific people are also differentiating factors.
Care Zone is very professionally designed and it is supported by a team of solid developers. There were no bugs or issues encountered during this review and the site was arranged in a logical and easy to use manner.
To register for Care Zone, users can subscribe to a free account for one year by providing information about the person who they are caring for, their email address and an account password.
As of May 2012, CareZone is offering a free membership for a year. After the first year, their service will cost $5/month, or $48/year.
Care Zone can be used by anyone who cares for another individual. It is a great way for families to stay in the "know" and to always have access to pertinent information for those they love and may be responsible for.
