As of 2016, there were 1 million job openings for home-care and 35 million people working as home-care workers who are not paid (children taking care of parents or grandparents, uncles or aunts).  The 'baby boomers' are about to enter the market, and 90% have a preference for staying at home over entering any care facility.
By 2030, older adults 65+ will grow by 81%

Older homebound people often complain of feeling isolated and marginalized. But thanks to innovative services and products that help them feel connected — such as virtual reading groups — the barriers created by aging are starting to improve. 

By 2020, the nursing workforce will drop 20% below projected needs.  Home Care will add one million jobs with the highest growth occupations, 2012-2022.  We will modernize and grow this workforce into the future of home care.

    I'm an entrepreneur, community builder and technology innovator who deeply cares for those of us who end up alone in a home or a room with nothing to do and no way to do it.  The technology is here, and with some effort, we can bring it to those in need of a companion or access point to family and society. This project will be helpful beyond measure and is necessary right now everywhere someone sits alone suffering from the disconnected loneliness and loss of purpose.  There are vital members of our society within this community within our reach.
