We are in the height of the holiday season, meaning managing business operations and staying organized have become even more crucial. While the holidays are a joyous time, they can also be difficult for many, and there’s no better place to see the need for compassion and togetherness than on the front lines of in-home care.   

Coordinating care during this festive time requires thoughtful planning and communication. Let’s explore some of the tools in Generations Homecare System designed to help you seamlessly plan care and stay organized:  

Available Shifts: Generations Homecare System makes broadcasting and filling available care opportunities easy and convenient. Once a care opportunity is available, caregivers will receive a notification via the Generations app. From there, the caregiver can easily open the Generations app and accept the available shift.   

Caregiver Absences: Using the Absences functionality in Generations, you can easily track when a caregiver will be unavailable. Caregivers can request absences in advance or at the last minute. Once an absence is documented, built-in alerts will ensure caregivers are not scheduled for those given days or hours, ensuring no scheduling conflicts occur.  

Holiday Pay: Generations Homecare System makes payroll a breeze, including adding Holiday Pay rates. Holiday Pay can be set up using the Holiday Master List. Here, you can adjust the pay rate for any holiday, which will automatically apply the set rate. This is one of the many helpful tools to simplify the payroll process throughout the holiday season.  

Interruptions of Service for Clients: During the holiday season, clients may also need to alter when they need to receive care. Using the Interruptions of Service functionality in the client profile, you can document the dates a client may not need services. Scheduling alerts will ensure they don’t get scheduled for services.  

New Year, New Software: There is no better time than now to make the switch to Generations Homecare System for the new year. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to implement a new billing and payroll solution. Luckily, with the help of the skilled team of professionals at Generations, making the switch is easy.
