Kate, our users are adding people they already know in person. Perhaps they use this wonderful tool by Atlas of caregiving to find people, but again the focus is on families who need help keeping track of things.

A daughter can add her mother, elderly uncle and neighbor on the platform. And perhaps their paid caregiver. Together they can pick up and help where others can't, get reminders if they want from our AI, and message among themselves to share the work.

And everything is logged and tracked.

Hi Kate, this is Minda from Peakfoqus responding. Yes, that is the correct web site. Thanks for posting! http://peakfoqus.com

Vytality is intended to help families, whether close or far, to stay in touch, monitor health and coordinate caregiving activities. It's different from neighborhood bartering solutions bc the focus is on the family and individual. The users can choose who to include in the trusted circle, which may or may not include the wider community.

For instance, my elderly neighbor may have included me, his daughter and wife, and they may pull in their cousin who has been helping out. These are smaller circles that can be narrowed or widened according to need - and it's in the control of the users.

We are also experimenting with "contribution points" or even a payment system for assisting with tasks.

Does that help answer your question?
