VideoCare, Inc. is a startup based in Menlo Park, California. We began with a simple question: “How can we take better care of an aging parent when they live thousands of miles away?” From that question our company was born. So many of us rely on computers and smartphones to enhance our social life, but the reality is that many of the elderly are simply shut out of the technology world. We wanted to build something that would take all of the complexity out of computing and shift the technical burden away from the care recipient. The management of the system is handled remotely by the family. This lets the care recipient enjoy video calls, shared photo albums, online videos, and streaming music — all without having to know anything about computers.
