To add a caregiver, click on the plus sign on the bottom right-hand side of your profile image on the homepage of the app. And then click on caregiver in the menu, and choose the add caregivers option.
The next step is to select whether you want to add the caregiver by a QR code in person or by a text message by clicking on your preference.
If you are adding your caregiver by QR code, click on that option, and select whether you would like to add them to your telemedicine calls or not.
You will then see the QR code that they scan to be added as a caregiver.
Please note that your caregiver must click on the add caregiver connection in their DrOwl account to scan this QR code and to be added as a caregiver on your DrOwl account.
Your caregiver would do this by opening up the DrOwl app and logging into their DrOwl account. When they are on the app homepage, they would touch the three white bars icon in the upper left-hand side of their screen, and choose caregiver requests from the menu. Then they simply have to accept the caregiver request that you sent to them.
If you are adding your caregiver by text message, click on that option, select whether you would like to add them to your telemedicine calls or not, and choose the person that you'd like to add as a caregiver from your phone contacts by tapping on the blue send button to send them a text inviting them to be your caregiver.
Please repeat this process for every caregiver that you would like to add.
Remember that not only can you securely share your medical history with your caregivers, but you can also add them to telemedicine calls so that they can be a part of important medical discussions regardless of location or time zone.*
*Telemedicine is available in select areas with more being added all the time.
