Concept

  • Care Angel is a free voice assistant with in-built voice recognition technology designed to look after elderly relatives through a daily two minute phone call and alert family caregivers to their wellbeing (behaviour, new symptoms and give help where needed)
  • Elderly patients receive a telephone call and are asked how they are feeling, if they slept well or have taken their daily medication
  • The application generates summarised care reports and insights into the elderly relative’s health to show where attention is needed
  • Care Angel gives family and friends peace of mind by creating in-app ‘Care circles’ (a circle of family or friends) or by using the in-app ‘Speed Dial’ function to directly call the senior or someone in the Care circle. Caregivers may also call a doctor or nurse through the app
  • Its VIP Care service is free and other plans start from $10/month (Care Plus with access to a care concierge, doctor, nurse or pharmacist)
  • Care Angel partners with insurers through white-labelling its products, bringing down costs for insurers and driving publicity to Care Angel
