What do you do when you're out of care options for your aging loved-ones? This week’s guest, Nectari Charitakis, built a platform that empowers seniors and their families to find affordable care without having to move them out of their homes.
There are two stories in this episode, and both involve Nectari Charitakis, a wonderful human being. Nectari has a career that jets him all over the world, but as an only child he must come to terms with his ageing parent's rapidly deteriorating health and all the emotional baggage that comes with this reality.
His mother, with Dementia, moves into a long-term care facility but her disease erases her command of the English language. His father became isolated during the pandemic in a long-term care home. Both are no longer alive.
The second story is about Nectari leaping off of a widely successful career path to become an entrepreneur, intent on lightening the load for others in similar circumstances.
Nectari creates uCARENET to empower aging seniors to stay in their own homes longer while receiving affordable, quality care and also alleviating everyday stresses on both families and healthcare workers.
Amy Deacon returns to the show as I love how she thinks. Amy is the Founder and CEO of Toronto Wellness Counselling, and she provides some powerful insights and ideas for ageing parents and all who love them.
