Hometeam, a New York-based startup providing in-home care to seniors. It transforms the aging experience by providing families expert caregiver matching, custom iPads, and a care team to promote healthy and active days

Concept

  • Hometeam is an online service that helps connecting seniors and their family members with professional and trained caregivers
  • It provides a matching model for patients and caregivers around not just medical needs, but also things like shared interests and personality
  • Each caregiver also is equipped with an iPad to keep record of the senior’s activity (sleep schedule, daily activities..). Hometeam then collects the data and shares it with the client’s physician

Consumer Benefits

  • Tailored services: experienced caregivers who will match the seniors’ specificities (health state, personality, interests) and provide best-in-class tailored services
  • Remonte monitoring: possibility for the family to monitor all daily activities of their senior family members
  • Alerts: Users get daily emails to keep you in the loop and potential issues are flagged immediately

How to use

  • Users add relevant information to the application, then the proprietary  software will match the client with a caregiver. Afterwards, appointments are scheduled online
  • Hometeam clients pay about $24 to $25 an hour
