“Instead, he imagines a nationwide network of care providers who would be matched with assignments by a smartphone app. A senior’s family would also have an app to help them monitor when an aide visited their relative at home. Honor would provide touchscreen-tablet devices in the seniors’ homes to notify them when an aide was on the way and let them rate the care they received, Sternberg said.
“Our technology will connect all three parties — the caregivers, the families and the seniors — and give visibility into the care your mom is getting,” he said.
The technology also will help Honor verify that aides visited homes at the agreed-upon times, didn’t check Facebook or make social calls, and, for instance, were walking around if they were supposed to be cooking a meal, not sitting down. “We actively monitor to ensure they do what they should,” Sternberg said.”
