Seed Lab Cohort: 2020/2021

When Carey and Jack moved to the US from Hong Kong in 2008, one of the biggest challenges they faced was finding the right and most user-friendly tool to stay in touch with their grandparents and parents and provide support. It was not easy as their elderly family found it hard to “tame” various technologies, platforms and apps. The idea for YOHO Care came while Carey, a trained social worker, and Jack, a NASA aerospace engineer, were researching the various options available. They realized that older adults don’t have easy-to-use one-stop options to stay connected, engaged, fit and sharp.
Envisioning a society in which all seniors are being honored and empowered to live their lives to the fullest, YOHO Care aims to provide a community platform to improve the social, mental, and physical fitness of seniors.
