Our aim is to discover new business models and alternatives to traditional health and elderly care services.
The World Health Organisation estimates that 38.4% of South Africans between the ages of 65 and 74 have limitations in eating, bathing, dressing, getting in and out of bed, or using the toilet. The twentieth century saw an ever-increasing number and proportion of older adults in many regions of the world. The European region became mature, with more people aged over 60 than under 16, over the turn of the millennium. There will be more old than young people in Asia or the globe as a whole. Presently, the number of South Africans 60 years or older sits at around 4.209 million people. In 2050, this figure will rise to 10.06 million people.
Many have not planned for this phase in their lives. Others rely on traditional retirement homes and health and social care services while their basic needs are not being met. Often times, many older people are just being forgotten, especially in poorer communities.
