Why are we here?
How do you put a human face on health and social care? How do you address the burgeoning challenges of increased longevity, an aging population and a system facing unprecedented fiscal and human resource challenges? Extraordinary efforts are being put into digitizing mountains of health related information, but once we capture all of this information, what will we do with it?
Here is our radical idea: Create a meaningful and active role for friends, family, and neighbours who are a critical part of the care equation. Share vital health information with the people who love the individual who’s facing a challenge. Connect people to each other and to good information. By nurturing the connections, relationships and activities within a person’s natural support network, we lay the foundation for their care.
We are champions of natural care. Friends and family have a role and expertise that services could never fill. Of course there is a role for professional services but our personal networks provide a passion, a care and a love that even the most well-intentioned and well designed intervention could never compete with. Tyze brings everyone on to the same page to create the best possible outcomes and to highlight reciprocity, exchange and meaning.
