Waiting for God

About Us

Waiting for God was born out of the experience of the company’s founders, Jason and Marie-Chantal.

Marie-Chantal was an executive working for the National Research Council when her grandmother’s care needs began to grow. This was a five-year process that was riddled with worry, frustration, and exhaustion. Her career was already taking the majority of her time, now she had to navigate the care needs of somebody else.

There were no tools to facilitate the journey, information was confusing and hard to find and the healthcare system continued to decline. Jason, Marie-Chantal’s life partner, electrical engineer, and software guru created tools to ease the journey.

Waiting for God aims to create an empowered community of care for a dying person.

Losing a family member is difficult and the systems we operate in should be there to support the process. As it stands, systems and services are disjointed, and technologies complicate rather than simplify the journey.

Jason and Marie-Chantal are dedicated to relieving the burden that comes with caring for somebody at the end of their life.

WHAT IS IN A NAME

Waiting for God is not a religious site, but it does have its roots in the spirituality.  Humans are spiritual and God is unknown, just like death.  

Whether secular or faith based, all ideologies have their own views of how to treat and care for those at the end of their lives.  Waiting for God aims to act morally, and ethically to respect the dignity of all people and their communities of care while they transition through this difficult period. 

While both Jason and Marie-Chantal are practicing Christians, both see God as bigger than religion.  

God permeates them all.  Whatever it is that is eternal and created us, we believe is waiting for us to return.
