MindLight launches new caregiver web and mobile app named Iriis

Feb. 15, 2018

MindLight, a company focused on ensuring caregivers have the tools and resources they need, has launched a new app. The app, named Iriis, is available on the web and for iPhone and Android. Iriis was created for family caregivers by family caregivers.

MindLight’s CEO and co-founder, Jackie Schwabe, has four children, one of whom has autism. When Schwabe could not find the resources, tools, and support she needed to support her family, she created the Iriis app. Schwabe is not alone. The National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP has noted that there are approximately 43.5 million caregivers that provided unpaid care to an adult or child in 2015, the last time the stat was made available. As the population ages, more and more adults will find themselves as family caregivers.

Iriis allows caregivers to coordinate tasks and appointments and even assign those tasks to others. Caregivers can collaborate with others by creating a caregiving team and then coordinating and assigning important work.

The app also acts like a virtual file cabinet to store and collect information caregivers want available for other members of the team. With Iriis, information can be shared and tasks and appointments assigned, making coordination easy and effective. Because it’s both a web and mobile app, information can be shared between the two so at home or on the go, the information is right at the caregiver’s fingertips.

MindLight also offers a range of free caregiver resources, including checklists, elder care goals, a budget worksheet and more.
