Mavencare Uses Technology to Modernize Elder Care in Canada

They say home is where the heart is. For Canadian seniors, staying there for as long as possible is a significant contributor to their happiness and longevity.

Mavencare, a new home care agency, is using proprietary technology to transform the way home care is delivered with convenience, quality and transparency.

With more than 20 years of experience working in elder care and hundreds of family interviews completed, Mavencare has identified three main opportunities to improve the delivery of home care: access, quality, and transparency.

Mavencare solves for these important issues by delivering a modernized approach to home care. A service first company, Mavencare uses technology to screen and hire caregivers and optimize the match between client and caregiver.

“Adoption and usability of modern technology has finally reached a point where it can drastically improve elder care,” said Nukul Bhasin, a cofounder.

Using the latest mobile technology, Mavencare provides a new level of transparency, by providing selected family members (and close friends) regular updates to their mobile phone during the home care appointment. These updates include details on a loved one’s activities and well-being, completed tasks such as taking medication, confirmed appointments, as well as delivering photos when appropriate.

“Our goal is to help seniors stay in their homes for as long as possible by providing easy access to the best quality home care,” said James Cohen, cofounder of Mavencare. “Families are looking for a reliable, dependable, and affordable service delivered by people they can trust. As experienced senior care professionals, we deliver top quality care and technology enables us to provide a level of transparency through regular updates. We call it ‘Connected Home Care.'”

Mavencare says its service is unique because its mobile technology connects caregivers (personal support workers), the client receiving the care, and the client’s family, and care requirements are completely flexible so families can order several hours of care, daily or weekly support.
