Home Instead Senior Care Partners with GrandPad To Provide Enhanced Integrated Care Solution

Partnership will bring high-tech care solution to Home Instead clients and CAREGiversSM

OMAHA, Neb. - Jan. 29, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Home Instead, Inc., the franchisor for the Home Instead Senior Care® network, today announced a partnership with GrandPad®, the first tablet-based solution designed exclusively for seniors. The two organizations are coming together to offer innovation that will change the way we care for the growing number of older adults.

The partnership provides a platform for Home Instead franchise owners to offer integrated care solutions that will enhance the client experience while a Home Instead CAREGiverSM is in the home. It also sets the stage for Home Instead to offer new services, such as interactive remote care, which would create new opportunities for the delivery of technology-based home care across underserved populations and rural geographies.

The agreement includes an equity investment in GrandPad. Additionally, Jeff Huber, president and CEO of Home Instead, Inc., has been added to the GrandPad board of directors.

"In our new collaboration with GrandPad, Home Instead is reaffirming our commitment to creating innovative, forward-looking solutions that empower Home Instead CAREGiversSM to deliver exceptional experiences for clients," said Huber.

The partnership joins the leading provider of in-home care with technology experts whose mission is to improve the lives of seniors, their loved ones and caregivers. Together, the intersection of innovation and care provides a high-tech, high-touch solution that will elevate the experience of aging today and for future generations.

In addition to complementing the quality care Home Instead CAREGiversSM provide to their clients, the partnership with GrandPad enables connectivity with families and friends. Nearly three in 10 adults over the age of 40 feel socially isolated, according to AARP. Technology can play an important role in helping older adults reduce loneliness and isolation by allowing them to stay connected with loved ones and live independently at home.

"With the Home Instead franchise network, we'll be able to reach more people who will benefit from the connectivity GrandPad provides," said Scott Lien, CEO and co-founder of GrandPad. "We're thrilled to work together to transform the way care is delivered and look forward to continued innovation that keeps seniors connected to their friends and family, while minimizing the stress of caring for aging loved ones."

Pilot programs are currently underway, and Home Instead Senior Care integrated care services powered by GrandPad will be available in select markets in 2019.
