Today at the Louisville Innovation Summit, Seth Sternberg, CEO and co-founder of Honor, made a big announcement. Huge, in fact. Introducing… Honor Now, a groundbreaking service that guarantees an Honor Care Coordinator will be there to help in just 2 hours. This is a game changer in high-quality home care.
We are thrilled to announce Honor Now, an innovative home-care solution for families who need quality help fast. For the first time ever, Bay Area families seeking care for older loved ones will not have to wait to get the help they urgently need.
If you’ve ever waited, wondering when—or if—your care professional is going to show up, then you know what a relief Honor Now will be.
“When families need home care, it can take many hours or even days for professional help to arrive. Honor is changing that,” said Sternberg. “Honor Now is especially helpful after surgery or a medical crisis when patients are being discharged. The timing is always unpredictable. But having great, skilled care is a necessity for a healthy recovery.”
Bay Area families will be the first to experience Honor Now. But the opportunity to help many more families as Honor expands into new markets across the country is huge. Every day, over 10,000 baby boomers will be turning 65—for the next 19 years. That means the population of Americans over 65 will nearly double to 84 million between now and 2050.
We’re not the only ones who think Honor Now is an important solution for families who need great home care—fast.
“As an increasing number of individuals wish to age at home, there is a rapidly growing need for high quality reliable home care,” said Dr. Philip Pizzo, Founding Director of the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, which is affiliated with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and former Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. “Having high-quality home-care services that are easily accessible, reliable and affordable would be an exceptional resource for our healthcare system—which Honor has the potential to deliver.”
How are we able to offer Honor Now? Amazing Care Professionals and smart technology. Honor selects only the best Care Professionals who apply and provides easy-to-use apps that make managing care fast and easy—from anywhere.
“What makes Honor special is the people—the quality of care is everything to us,” adds Sternberg. “We use technology to ensure our clients receive the highest level of service. Our apps also make it much easier for Care Pros to do their job and manage their clients efficiently. So everyone wins.”
We are very excited to launch Honor Now in the San Francisco Bay Area—and hope you will be too.
