Jessica McGlory of Guaranteed: Transforming End-of-Life Care through Innovation and Compassion
Guaranteed is a care company that makes tough moments easier. By blending at-home treatment with cutting-edge technology, they deliver care how you want it.
Confronting death is no easy task. It's like that big, scary monster we avoid talking about. But avoiding the topic only leads to more problems. Take a look at the stats: 90% of people know it's important to discuss end-of-life wishes with their loved ones, but only 27% actually do it. We're missing out on the chance to have those crucial conversations that bring comfort and clarity during the transition. That's where Guaranteed comes in. Founded by Jessica McGlory, this startup is on a mission to revolutionize end-of-life experiences by empowering individuals and families to take control of their own journeys.
McGlory's motivation stems from personal experience. When her father passed away, they hadn't talked about what he wanted for his final days. The result? A whirlwind of decisions made in the heat of the moment, stealing precious time that could have been spent reliving cherished memories. That's when it hit her—these conversations shouldn't be taboo. They should be encouraged, embraced, and put in writing. Guaranteed is all about giving people the tools they need to shape their own end-of-life journeys. And it's not just about death—it's about dignity, choice, and making the most of the time we have left.
But how does Guaranteed stand out in the world of end-of-life care? Well, it starts with breaking down barriers. McGlory knows all too well about marginalized voices being ignored in the healthcare system. She's witnessed her own family members brushed off by doctors, their needs neglected. So, she set out to change that. With a background in data analysis and programming, McGlory understands the power of technology. She's using it to connect with audiences, gather insights, and deliver personalized experiences. Guaranteed is all about putting the customer first, providing education, support, and user-friendly tools to guide families through the difficult decisions and ensure a smooth transition.
