DohJe is Thank You. Literally, in Cantonese. It is pronounced "Dough-Jay". Caregivers earn our gratitude by seeing us through the most significant moments in our lives. While some people think to say "thanks" in the moment, many people carry around unexpressed gratitude for months or years. DohJe makes it easy for patients to say "thank you" anytime, from anywhere. DohJe helps close the emotional loop on major life experiences; promoting better healing, satisfaction, and well-being.
