When Aetonix founder’s 83-year-old aunt was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, she found it difficult to let family and healthcare professionals know what she needed, leading to problems with her care, and feelings of isolation.
Michel was concerned, and realized his aunt wasn’t the only person with these common problems that arise with aging, Alzheimer’s and dementia, and other types of healthcare issues.
The population is aging and North America is predicted to be home to more than 84 million people over the age of 65 by the year 2030. As such, the demands on our health care systems and our caregivers increase every year.
With this knowledge, Michel became inspired to do something about it, to make the world a bit better for his aunt and every other person with complex care needs.
Our Mission: Connecting the Circle of Care
Aetonix was founded in February 2014 with a mission to address the increasing demands for caregiving solutions for home caregivers and for those in group facility settings, regardless of geographical distance between caregiver and the cared for. Aetonix soon launched aTouchAway, a face-to-face communication platform ready to revolutionize the way that families, healthcare professionals and those receiving care complete their circle of care.
Aetonix became part of Trudell Medical Group in February 2021.
