You MUST first be registered with us as a caregiver or a staff member and get your log on credentials in order to use our smartphone APC App.
The application will work of all types of modern smartphones like iPhone, Android phones and Windows 10 Mobile, but you can use it also on your tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
You can log-in to the application at the address http://apc.advantageplussystem.com/
Place the application icon to your home screen
You can (and we recommend) place the application icon on the home screen of your device. You can find help on how to do this depending on the device you have by clicking here
Using the software after set-up:
After your initial log in, it should log you in automatically every time you open the APC icon.
Once logged on you should be able to see your proposed schedule awaiting your confirmation (see below). You must confirm each day that you are going to be working. Once confirmed you then wait to check in on the date and time of the schedule (you will only be able to check in while you are at the care recipient's location, that is determined by your GPS feature in your smartphone so that must be on). After you check in you will be able to reach the care recipient's chart, including preferences and daily routines, along with previous care notes. You may have some additional tasks added to your day and you will be able to fill your “Care Notes” as you are doing them or at the end of the day before you “check out”. When you leave the care recipient's home you will no longer be able to see their view.
If you want further assistance, please call or come in and we will help you!
