Inspiration behind CareFlash

CareFlash is located in Austin, TX and was founded in 2006 by Jay Drayer out of an experience he had when a family member was diagnosed with a chronic health challenge where complications developed... culminating in several weeks in hospice and a death. Testifying to the ways positive transformation can be driven by tragic events, the experience that motivated Jay to depart his career in corporate finance surrounded the 9/11 tragedies in which he witnessed the second plane's impact on the World Trade Center while on his way to a 9:00 meeting that morning at 60 Wall St.

What does CareFlash do?

This is not another patient website that engages loved ones with nonstop updates, well wishes and always asking how they can help - but a complete approach that moves loved ones from sympathy to empathy... enabling them from near and far to more naturally and comfortably rally 'round - extending integrated care and strengthening outlook and peace of mind involving circumstances such as:

  • Illness
  • Injury
  • Childbirth
  • Aging
  • Cognitive decline
  • Behavioral challenge
  • Addiction recovery
  • Grief from a loss

A Careopolis is entirely (and quickly and easily) created and operated by the family and requires no education or training.

CareFlash also partners with hundreds of providers nationwide - enhancing comprehensive care, reducing caregiver burnout, improving overall wellness and enhancing marketing as in this sample video:
