HomeHero is a licensed non-medical home care provider that leverages smart technology and human compassion to extend the health system into the home.
HOW IT WORKS:
Use the HomeHero app to browse our team of caregivers (or “Heroes”), each with a profile featuring references, skills, bios, and HD video introductions. Stay up to date on the health status of your loved one at home with real-time access to daily GPS check-ins, observational notes, shift verification, photos, videos and more — all accessible through the HomeHero app.
The HomeHero app is also one of the first to utilize Apple’s open-source CareKit software, which we use to curate observational health data collected in the home (note: no private health information is sent to Apple, and will never be distributed without your consent — HomeHero is a HIPAA-compliant home care agency).
With hundreds of bonded and insured “Heroes”, HomeHero has grown to be one of the largest and most trusted home care providers in California, having provided more than 1 million hours of care to thousands of families. We offer a wide range of post-acute services such as personal care and companionship, transitional care, postoperative recovery, medication management, transportation and assistance with activities of daily living.
Equipped with a robust mobile app, our Heroes conduct guided safety checks in the home, record patient health information, monitor social determinants and deliver critical real-time data back to families and case managers in the hospital (if your loved one was recently discharged).
Our Care Managers — consisting of social workers, medical professionals and data scientists — work closely together to triage patients, provide actionable insights and predictive analytics to the care team, keeping patients safer than ever in their homes.
Every Hero is our employee, meaning we take care of training, background checks, health insurance, workman’s compensation, employer taxes and state registration fees so you don’t have to. We are fully HIPAA-compliant and provide $4 million in theft and professional liability insurance at no extra cost to you.
HomeHero was launched in May, 2013 by Kyle Hill and Mike Townsend, originally as a service for their own families. The company is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA and has raised $23 million in venture funding from Graham Holdings, Social+Capital Partnership, Science Inc, The Launch Fund, Tencent Holdings, Techstars and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Ratings and Reviews
Awesome App and Idea
What a time to be alive... couldn't have imagined something like this a few years ago. Basically you can use their app to find caregivers that actually fit what your family needs. What I like is the fact that you actually get to see all the caregivers before they send one -- WAY better than those agencies that just send rando's. Clean, responsive app too. 5/5
This app is great, you can watch beautiful video interviews of caregivers before sending them into your home.
It takes about 15 minutes to get matched up with a caregiver after going through a straight and simple flow. They have a lot of qualified caregivers where I was looking in Walnut Creek, and prices are competitive.
Would definitely recommend before going to an agency.
Great way to find care for your loved ones
I've been using HomeHero's website for awhile now, and I'm so happy they released an app! I am often on the go, so being able to watch caregiver videos on my iPhone is so much more convenient. The videos have great personal flair and make me feel much more confident about any choices I make!
