Hometeam, a senior-focused, home care company, has raised $27.5 million from Oak HC/FT as well as existing investors Lux Capital, IA Ventures, and Recruit Strategic Partners.
“Hometeam is about creating beautiful days for older adults while giving family members peace of mind,” Hometeam CEO Josh Bruno said in a statement. “The marriage of technology and high quality in-home care will revolutionize our industry and this new round of funding will enable us to build out our platform and offer truly unique and specialized care to older adults in other locations.”
Families can use Hometeam to send a caregiver to the senior’s home. Some of the services the caregiver provides includes making the senior meals, helping them take their medication, and making sure they maintain good hygiene. Hometeam keeps an iPad in every home so that caregivers can plan fun activities and update family members about the senior's daily progress. Family members can view updates from their smartphone and send notes and suggestions to the caregiver through the app too.
Each family receives support from a care advisor, care coordinator, registered nurse, and the caregiver.
The company currently offers its services to cities in New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Hometeam said it plans to expand its offering into new states and cities in the coming months.
Hometeam COO Christine Henningsgaard previously led operations for One Medical Group and the company’s VP of Engineering Harry Heymann served as VP of Engineering at Foursquare.
