Chenny Xia: Our Relationship to Care

Chenny Xia, Founder of GotCare, taught us how we can change the healthcare system, one conversation at a time. Together, our community boldly imagined a more equitable, sustainable care economy.

It’s time to rethink our relationship to care.

At some point in our lives, we will all need care. Sometimes, that looks like support from the government and healthcare workers. Sometimes, that looks like support across generations, within a community. But often, it is the quickest solution we can come up with, in the moment. Why leave conversations about care until the last minute?

Let’s imagine what dignified elder, injury, and disability care looks like

So often, people who need care are made to feel like a burden, when they should be celebrated. Aging does not mean fading into the background. Injury does not mean weakness. Disability does not mean inability. When we plan for care, patients and caregivers alike can maintain their autonomy and have fulfilling lives. We won’t look at caregiving as yet another task on our growing to-do list, but an integrated part of our lives. Chenny Xia, Founder of GotCare and TEDxToronto speaker, will be leading a facilitated workshop where participants will boldly and collaboratively imagine a more equitable, sustainable care economy. She'll guide us to rethink our relationship to care, one conversation at a time.Join us on Thursday, May 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM EDT for our latest TEDx Adventure.
