Helping those who help
VillageCare is a web platform offering guidance and support to children caring for frail elderly parents. The founders, an all-female team, are themselves “caregivers” of parents in difficulty and offer their experience in the social welfare, insurance and non-profit sectors.
The platform allows “caregivers” to take advantage of a number of services: the “Do it yourself” search engine, articles, practical guides to consult independently and a network of professionals in the sector, such as psychologists, doctors and counsellors, with whom they can start a tailor-made consultancy process for guidance and the search for solutions, throughout Italy, via web, telephone and Skype.
VillageCare is an innovative startup with a social vocation, committed to supporting families in overcoming moments of fragility of their loved ones, related to ageing or specific diseases. It provides a range of services to both individuals and companies in the field of corporate welfare and training on the issues of work-life balance and corporate welfare.
