International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised Yecco, the newly launched social media platform, on its partnership with Allianz Global Assistance UK.
Yecco allows families, care-givers, professionals and other services to communicate together online and on mobile devices. In doing this, Yecco helps to address some of the universal issues of self management of health conditions, loneliness, isolation and care planning faced by the elderly and those living with chronic conditions and associated difficulties faced by families and carers.
Under the new agreement, Allianz Global Assistance is offering Yecco Home Care, providing up to six weeks of assistance at home, in the event of unforeseen illness or an accident resulting in hospitalisation. This partnership forms part of Allianz Global Assistance’s ongoing commitment to helping the UK population plan for care and the associated costs involved.
Yecco Home Care, provided by Allianz Global Assistance, insures Families and Individuals over the age of 18 years, providing personal care, domestic help, light meal preparation and transport from the hospital following an initial stay. The service aims to give anyone who has an accident or falls ill unexpectedly the care they need, when they need it most without having to rely on the care system.
The Pinsent Masons team advising on the deal was led by insurance partner Iain Sawers.
Commenting on the deal Iain Sawers said: “We are delighted to have advised Yecco on their Partnership with Allianz Global Assistance.Yecco Home Care goes some way to reduce the uncertainties around care costs and the partnership provides the perfect platform to bring people access to this type of support."
