The concept of ParentCare comes from the personal experience of Bharat Vasandani, an NRI living in London.
As parents grow older, NRIs worry about their health while carrying the burden of guilt about being away. These worries get even worse during medical treatment. Having no other choice, NRIs turn into long-distance caregivers and face hurdles and stress because the Indian healthcare system is not designed for remote working.
After going through the cycle on his own, Bharat wants to make it easier for NRIs to care for their parents from anywhere & anytime.
Driven by the mission to simplify long-distance caregiving for NRIs, ParentCare was founded in April 2020.
