Task analysis can be daunting for any care provider or job coach. It can be particularly challenging and time-consuming if you are still working with instructional manuals and binders which once created, need to be continually updated.
MeMinder, CreateAbility’s robust task prompting app, offers three different resources for task storage and retrieval that keeps care providers and job coaches from having to “re-invent the wheel” each-and-every time they have a new individual to care for.
1.) Meminder Existing Task Library: There are a number of tasks and responsibilities we do every day. For these, CreateAbility has already done the work for you! Surf our library of over 200+ tasks that have already been developed to address tasks like personal hygiene, general chores, medication reminders, safety protocols, etc.
Existing tasks come in three different forms: audio-only, talking pictures, and full video demonstration so you can choose the format that best suits the individual served. Then, simply choose a task and move it over to the individual’s schedule and…wah-lah!
2.) Custom Tasks: For those times when an individual has unique or specific responsibilities, you can simply create your own task, name the task, put your phone or tablet up and record instructions for them. Then, store the custom tasks in your own repository for safe keeping. (Don’t worry, all tasks are stored in the cloud so you won’t ever have to recreate them again!)
3.) Private Library: There are many places of employment and community living spaces that are run the same across an organization. In these cases, you can establish a private repository for the entire organization to share tasks. The repository is assigned a key to share with team members and remains out of the sight of MeMinder users outside of your organization.
These are just three of MANY ways MeMinder can help simplify task analysis. If you’d like to learn about its other benefits, explore the MeMinder Technology Solution page.
