Help Unlimited is partnering with technology-driven home care company Honor to provide more reliable and transparent care for aging adults in a well-known California county.
San Francisco-based Honor — backed by $150 million in venture capital since launching in 2015 — is a non-medical home care company that provides care to clients in California, Texas and New Mexico. As a company, Honor partners with local home care agencies to manage their scheduling, payroll and other back-office logistics, while also sharing from its large pool of care professionals.
Santa Barbara, California-based Help Unlimited is also a provider of non-medical services. The company offers transportation, daily care, post-hospital recuperation and dementia care services out of its two offices in Santa Barbara and Ventura County.
The partnership, announced Tuesday, will allow Help Unlimited to provide more care for its clients within Santa Barbara County. By 2060, the Santa Barbara County population aged 65 and over is projected to grow over 100% — compared to 28% growth across all age brackets, according to data from the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments.
“We’ve seen an uptick in demand for in-home care driven by an aging population, needed support for dementia care as well as older adults wanting to remain in their own homes for as long as possible,” Gayle Bertsch, owner and founder of Help Unlimited, said in a press release. “We knew we needed to take an innovative approach to make our overall quality of care we’re known for. Partnering with Honor will allow us to positively impact and care for even more families in our community.”
Honor handles all caregiver recruiting, wage and hour, and industry compliance for its partners.
