Why mycarespace? | MyCareSpace

Why mycarespace?

With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme people need the facts to build their own knowledge in order to exercise true choice and control.

Providers need to better understand and respond to the needs of their customers. Customers are seeking greater transparency and are tired of filling out questionnaires and surveys.

This calls for a new way of engagement. Mycarespace is as much about peer to peer knowledge sharing as it is about connecting providers with new customers. Mycarespace provides the forum to develop new customer relationships and insights in a cost effective and in transparent way.

But the quality of life for people with a disability should not depend on the care and support that you have around you. Quality of life comes from engaging with the world around you - whether its socialising, or visiting an art gallery, going away to a music festival or playing in a team sport.

Mycarespace will connect you with services and providers in your area, share stories of others on the same journey as you and help you uncover new experiences you never considered before....

THE TEAM

Nicole Gamerov

Nicole lives in Sydney with her devoted husband and their 3 beautiful children and loves to keep fit and enjoys running and yoga and even a bit of surfing.

Nicole worked in finance for almost 20 years and had built up a successful career during which she established the Global Partnerships unit for a top international re-insurance company in Australia, New Zealand the Pacific Islands. In 2016, she decided to leave the corporate world to do something which would allow her to make a difference to people’s lives on a deeper and more personal level.

Nicole knows how challenging it can be to live with a disability as her mother went blind from macular degeneration. In her view, having a disability means that you are differently abled. Her mum is a true example of this, as her blindness does not prevent her from leading a full and active life and from travelling the world.

Nicole is passionate about inspiring people to reach their full potential. She wants to empower people so that they can enhance the quality of their own life. However, she came to realise that what was missing was an online platform which provided easily accessible, independently reviewed information and which would allow people to make important decisions about their health and lifestyle choices. With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the need for such a platform is even greater which led to the creation of Mycarespace.

Bianca Shapiro

Bianca lives in Sydney with three energetic children and an even more energetic husband. She loves running, playing tennis and pilates. Having originally come from a Finance background, she joined Nicole, a long time friend to start the hugely successfull Dynamic Web Training (DWT), a nationally located certified Adobe and Microsoft training centre. This was sold to Seek Online as their Seek Learning flagship business. After that it was all things websites and she has been developing all kinds of applications for all kinds of people since then 2005. 

She joined Nicole and MyCareSpace because she recognises the vision that Nicole has and can't wait to continue the journey alongside her.
