Aging with Care [UNT]

When Amy Blakely Laine (’99) was a UNT graduate student juggling course projects, exams and deadlines, she also was juggling the duty of being a caregiver for her grandmother who was several states away.

Even with endless love and support, caregiving was difficult for her family to manage as Laine’s parents also were frantically balancing the duty of raising two daughters and managing their careers.

“Family has always been my core,” she says.

Laine couldn’t turn a blind eye to the idea of other families experiencing the same challenges that her family faced, so she created SandwYch, an online service that aids families in taking on the difficult role of a caregiver for their loved ones.
