We are the first GDPR compliant communication tool within the elderly care market. We connect nursing homes with the relatives of the seniors living in them.
Having dreamt about starting their own business, the founders quit their jobs to have a closer look at elderly care related industries. Since they had little knowledge of the actual profession, they decided to do a four month internship as caregivers. While working as caregivers they realized that there was one, recurring problem. To illustrate this, I would like to tell a little story. On a cold February morning in Berlin, Felix, one of the founders, prepared 5 seniors to go on a trip. They visited the Picasso exhibition, then coffee in the museums café, then everyone back on the bus and home for lunch. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it. After lunch a daughter comes to visit her mother and asks her: “mother, what have you been up-to today”. The mother replies: “I have not done anything yet and in fact I have not even...

After lunch a daughter comes to visit her mother and asks her: “mother, what have you been up-to today”. The mother replies: “I have not done anything yet and in fact I have not even eaten”. As you can imagine, the daughter was furious and calming her down took 2 caregivers around 20 minutes. Felix, was amazed at how little knowledge the daughter had on what was happening in the life of her mother. That’s when we decided to do something against the information asymmetry between caregiver, elder and relative. In close collaboration with one of the largest German Hospital chains, we developed myo. After 6 months of constant improvement and testing we now have a product that is developed exactly to the needs of the users and the industry. The software is developed with and for caregivers to give them back the time to do what they love to do and what they are actually paid for- which is giving care.
Myo is already being used in multiple care homes and with over 1.000 messages sent and more than 2.000 replies has shown great potential.
