My name is Tiffany, I am 36 years old and trying to complete an app I have been working on for 5 years. This is a project that is very near and dear to my heart and it is a resource that is very much needed among the caregiving community. At some point in our life we will need to step in and take care of a loved one, a loved one will need to step in and take care of us or a person will experience both...it is inevitable. Whether you are advocating for yourself as a single person, a parent caring for a child, a child caring for an elderly parent, a spouse/partner, veteran, boyfriend, girlfriend, aunt, uncle, friend, roommate or a sibling caring for a loved one you are a caregiver. Caregiving comes in all different forms and needs and no two situations are ever the same.
I experienced this first hand as I was needed to step in to be a veteran caregiver for my older brother for 4 years. In that time I had to navigate through a lot of unknowns with limited support and resources. Caregiving is such an incredible opportunity but it comes with an enormous amount of responsibility for anyone to carry. As a caregiver you are required to manage, track and recall so much information about the person you are caring for at a moments notice and doing/trying everything possible to make sure their health and well-being is the best it can be.
I truly want to help caregivers navigate through their journey and the apps out there that label themselves as a "caregiver" app are geared toward the elderly and are strictly operating for two reasons...pharmaceuticals and profit. My app is designed for everyone and it can be used by anyone no matter their caregiver role. I want my app to be a safe and reliable resource for caregivers everywhere which can be customized to their caregiving needs based on whom they are caring for. Most importantly I want to help build a caregiving community to give caregivers the support and encouragement they need while providing an easy way to help keep necessary and important information safe, organized and easily accessible.
My app is 80% complete and I just need a little more help and support to complete it. The funds from here will help to complete the project. Once the app is complete it can be then be tested out by caregivers so that feedback can be used to make sure all necessary edits are made before it hits the app store. I have a team in place that will work with me after the app is complete but just need a little more financial help to get to completion.
Any assistance is so greatly appreciated and if anything I am so grateful to you for taking the time to read my story and read about my project. THANKS SO MUCH! :)
