Meetcaregivers Receives Funding to Build New App

Meetcaregivers is a home health care business that connects families with pre-screened and qualified caregivers for their aging parents at as much as half the cost of traditional agencies. Co-founder Florence Fuhara was a caregiver early in her career. She started the company with a mission to improve caregiver pay, reduce the cost of home care, and improve coordination to help more seniors receive the care they need, decrease readmission to hospitals, and enable more seniors to age at home.

Recently, the business developed a basic/free version of an app that can track and coordinate health among caregiver and family members. In June 2019, BII participated in a growth capital loan as the company plans to further develop the app and to hire both a technology team and a marketing and sales team.
