Yecco is a free private social network that aims to make caring easier. It connects family, friends and neighbours of a more vulnerable family member in need of support an older person through a secure online network.
The online platform helps members of the network to share a calendar for the care of an older person, make requests of one another, access a directory of services and even invite formal carers like a GP, nurse or social worker to join.
Yecco also provide a tracker device enabled with GPS that can be worn by the person being cared for if they want to. It allows approved network members to track the remote location of the person. It also acts as an emergency device which when activated sends an SOS message with a link to the trackers location and immediately contacts those in the Yecco network.
