A SOCIETY IN WHICH THE CARE OF THOSE IN NEED IS OMNIPRESENT AND RECEIVES THE SAME ESTEEM AND PRIORITY AS THE SUDDEN
AND PRIORITY AS WHEN CARE SUDDENLY BECOMES NECESSARY IN ONE’S OWN FAMILY.
Our two founders, Jasper and Felix, founded myo in 2017 after doing a care internship at an Agaplesion home in Berlin. There, they were able to gain a lot of insight into the everyday life and work of caregivers and realised how little relatives notice about the lives of their loved ones and how little appreciation the profession receives as a result.
Thus the idea was born to let relatives participate in the lives of their loved ones with the help of myo and to give them an insight into everyday life in a nursing home.
myo is also the abbreviation of myosotis, Latin for the forget-me-not plant – whereby “forget-me-not” is emblematic of the theme of myo.
In the meantime, myo is represented in over 150 nursing homes and the number is growing almost daily.
from life in care
Lena – Caregiver
“myo has had a profound impact on my role as a caregiver. It has reminded me of the motivations that first took me into the care sector and is part of why I am still in the profession today. I care passionately about my work and it is personally so rewarding being able to share this directly with families. It’s reassuring to see their appreciation first-hand and I know our residents benefit immeasurably from knowing their loved-ones are just a moment away.”
Franz – Resident
“Being away from my family, the days can be long and there are so many moments that I wish I could share with them. myo has brought us all closer together and, every day, I look forward to the pictures and messages we can send them.”
Johanna – Head of Care
“It has been incredible to witness the profound impact myo has had on our day-to-day operations. Every day, we see the hard-work and dedication of our staff but, until now, they have lacked the platform to share this with families. myo has been incredibly easy to use and it’s hard to imagine a time before it.”
Susanne – Relative
“My mother has been in a care home in England for a year now. Living in the US, I miss her always. myo has given me an amazing glimpse into her life and I don’t know what I would do without it. These myo posts are currently even more meaningful during the COVID-19 social distancing. I believe myo is an application that should be used by all care homes to diminish the distance felt. myo posts are truly priceless.“
Marc – Care Home Director
“In my mind, myo is one of the most valuable tools on offer in the caretech space today. The app places value on the caregiver, ensuring their voice cuts-through the noise. This provides our care homes with a unique proposition which benefits the residents, relatives and their families. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.”
