Using the Cloud to Organize Your Digital Caregiving Life – Caregiver Smile Summit
Ken Bitticks is our guest on the Caregiver Smile Summit.
Caregiving is the new norm. Everyone is just one phone call away from becoming a caregiver and needs to access vital information instantly 24/7 from anywhere. Using an organized cloud system automatically classifies, categorizes and indexes your life so that when you need it, you can find it. In addition to the joy and peace of mind you have, it can literally save your life and the lives of your loved ones. Your life story, pictures, values, and legacy can live on for generations to come. Ken will share information about Digital Life Cloud and real life scenarios users have faced where the Cloud literally helped save a life.
