I'm Eddy Ku, founder of I Am Me, I came up with this idea whilst I was volunteering with a charity focusing on people with dementia. They were handling out paper-based document, a lot of them.
And I thought, why do we need to keep filling these up if dementia is progressive?
So I spoke to people, a lot of people.
From a contractor with Westminster Council to a Ward Lead in Liverpool. I spoke to them all. The conclusion was clear.
A centralised, digitalised, online care plan.
So I teamed up with Andrea, John and Patryk, all from University of West London. We worked as hard as we could to prototype and build what it is you see online today. We have the head of Dementia Care school as our advisor overseeing the project.
And we partnered with Amazon for online credits to ensure the website is accessible.
And there it is . www.iamme.care is live and FREE for families, carers, managers, nurses to use for a digitalise self-care document.
We exist to spread less paper, that spreads less of this vicious virus.
We exist to help the ones we love, to protect and nurture them.
Pay It Forward will ensure that our route of expansion to be on track. We have 190 users signed up but there is still improvements and features to be added. We will use these funds to ensure that we will be NHS certified digital health application.
