It started with a Skype call a few years ago.
I was living in Seattle and catching up with my family back home in Toronto. We did this almost daily but today, the conversation was a little different. My parents told me that my grandmother had fainted in the subway on the way to a doctor’s appointment with my grandfather. They didn’t have cell phone reception to call my dad since they were underground.
Eventually a kind stranger offered to drive them to the hospital and my grandmother recovered fully but it got me thinking about what will happen in the future. If there was someone to accompany them on trips like these, my grandparents and our family would have felt safer. It got me thinking about how our families are going to live their lives in the next 15, 20, 30 years.
Fast forward 3 years and Lucas and I are sitting in our office, launching a home care service set out to help our family members live their life to the fullest at any age.
Our goal is simple - we want to build a better home care service for our seniors. From hiring the best caregivers to giving families the tools to stay in the know, we're rethinking the entire model. It's the kind of care we would want for our own family members and it's something we care deeply about.
