INSIDE HOMESTAY

So many of the things we enjoy today are thanks to the hard work of the generations before us. At HomeStay, that very fact navigates our passion for what we do.

We’re a ‘wonderfully human’ brand that is committed to empowering mature Australians with the confidence to continue living in their own home.

Yes, we do this through an impressive array of tech-care products, but behind those products you’ll find a people-focused brand – one made up of a passionate team of talented individuals who each bring a unique set of skills to the HomeStay table.

By drawing on our combined experience across industries including aged care, IT, product development and marketing, we can provide a depth of expertise and understanding that underpins the unique HomeStay offer.

THE JOURNEY SO FAR

Sometimes a glaring gap in the market presents a unique opportunity to develop something truly great and wonderfully impactul. In 2016 after identifying a need for the provision of better, smarter, more efficient and consistent care to senior adults, HomeStay was founded.

At the heart of our offer sits the HomeStay IoT Platform that connects with various technology, including wearables and sensors throughout the home and on home appliances, to provide ongoing monitoring to assist in the care of elderly users.  

The platform is driven by impressive advances in technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics that provide real time alerts and preventative interventions that allow senior adults to stay in their homes longer.

WHERE WE’RE HEADING

We’re a brand with plenty of momentum that hit the ground running from day one. Since then we’ve used the art of listening to hear about what mature people living at home really need in order to keep them confident, happy and safe living alone.

We’ve presented at expos, roadshows and industry events with an amazing reception to what we do and the way we do it. Right away we have seen the exact people we want to assist respond positively to the idea of having tech-care fitted to their home. 

Naturally, this comes as good news to their families too who can rest assured knowing their loved one is no longer living alone, but rather can rely on HomeStay’s technology companions to keep them safe.
