Will the ZaggoCare® System Help Me?
- Is it hard to learn how to use the system?Not at all. The system is extremely easy to use. The ZaggoCare® Guide provides guidance and tips, and it explains how and why each item in the system is important. It all works together as a complete system so you can easily stay on top of all your important medical details.
- Have any doctors approved it?Although the ZaggoCare® System is no substitute for good medical advice, many healthcare professionals tell us that ZaggoCare® provides patients and caregivers with useful information and tools not found elsewhere. It can make a big difference.
- How can I be sure the ZaggoCare® system will help me?The 120-page ZaggoCare® Guide covers a wide range of helpful topics in a clear and concise format.

- I’m a well-organized person. Why would I need this?Even the most highly organized people will benefit from the ZaggoCare® System’s practical guidance, tips and tools. The fact is, coping with the stress of an illness or injury is often harder than it needs to be because we aren’t trained or prepared for it. As I learned through caring for my teenage son during his cancer ordeal, navigating through a medical process requires far more than anyone could possibly know beforehand. Rather than have to learn everything as you go, ZaggoCare® will guide you to get more from your medical care throughout the process.
When patients and caregivers are empowered to do a better “job” as fully involved members of the healthcare team, it can make a big difference in quality of care and outcome.

The Guide provides specific advice on how to make it work when caregiving from a distance.

- How can ZaggoCare® help me manage all the medicines I take?Taking a lot of medicines can be very confusing. Believe it or not, sometimes it is hard to remember if you have even taken a medication earlier in the day! Additionally, many people do not understand important details such as when to take the medications; whether to take them with or without food; what side effects to look for, and more. The ZaggoCare® Guide provides a list of comprehensive questions to ask your doctor when taking a new medicine, as well as detailed advice on how to make sure you are following the prescribed regimen. Additionally, we provide a simple Medication Chart so you can keep track of the medicines you take each day more easily.
- Will this help me understand and remember what my doctor says?Yes. All too often, patients and caregivers are left feeling confused and overwhelmed by all the medical terms, instructions and other information. That’s why we provide tips and a list of questions for you to use in order to navigate successfully. Also, one feature of the ZaggoCare® System involves taking notes during doctor appointments to refer back to later as questions arise. You’d be surprised at the difference this simple act can make.
- Can my spouse and I share a system?We recommend that each patient have his or her own system to use. Sharing one system would not be very practical as patient information would easily get mixed up and cause confusion. When patients have their own ZaggoCare® System, all their medical information stays well organized and easily accessible, even with multiple caregivers.
