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's career jets him all over the world, but back home he has a responsibility to care for his aging parents as their only child. He talks about coming to terms with his aging 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 becomes isolated during the pandemic in a long-term care home. Both are no longer alive.
Nectari's experience in caring for his parents prompted him to leave behind a widely successful career path to become an entrepreneur, intent on lightening the load for others in similar circumstances. He created 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 Counseling, and she provides some powerful insights and ideas for aging parents and all who love them.
