Today, the young firm describes itself as “a social network and advice centre that aims to bring the whole family closer together.”Yecco brings peace of mind to families, professionals and carers who can: enjoy contact with their families across the world; seek advice from those in a similar situation; share experiences and documents; manage calendars; build a network of care around a person; or simply play games or sharing photos and web chat. Yecco CEO and founder Janet Jadavji, has a background in social care, and lectures around the world on Dementia and methods to improve the healthcare industry. As she has said: “Families and carers need information on services and products in order to make their jobs easier, and a platform to help co-ordinate the care and support for a friend or family member. Families often hold the responsibility to care and support and look after someone else, but they need a structure, information and resources to do this.” With dementia rates, sadly, on the increase, we applaud this young firm determined to share best practice and support.
