Homeage was founded in 2016 by CEO Gillian tee, senior medical executive lily phang and former banker Tony Duong. it is mainly aimed at matching high-quality family nursing staff for the elderly and enabling patients' families to learn about the service process and details in a timely manner.
 
In terms of nursing staff recruitment standards, homeage requires employees to hold relevant qualifications before entering the platform. Users can subscribe to different types of services, for a short period of one hour, or they can subscribe to fixed long-term services.
 
Gillian tee, chief executive officer of homeage, said that the services provided by homeage were largely non-medical and focused on helping the elderly to be able to move freely, maintain a better physical and mental state and provide them with a more dignified life in their later years despite declining health conditions.
 
At the beginning of its establishment, Gillian tee also studied the medical care technology and employment portal's entrepreneurial opportunities, but found that the two vertical fields were already quite saturated, so she decided to combine the two and create homeage, using the light asset platform model to match the supply and demand of the elderly care industry and further improve the treatment of nursing staff.
 
Nowadays, homeage has expanded to many fields such as physiological function therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, etc. Homeage offers six different apps, two for caregivers, two for family members, and two for partners such as non-governmental organizations and other care institutions.
 
When talking about the use of this round of funds, Gillian tee showed the intention of globalization and expansion. " the company's focus is on Singapore. at the same time, we also want to develop another market in the Asia-Pacific region. at present, we are not sure exactly where it is, but the market demand in Asia as a whole is growing. Tee further said that it plans to use the new funds to enter other vertical industries and provide new services in areas where both patients and nurses have needs.
 
Singapore's prime minister lee hsien loong also gave homage a high opinion. At Singapore's national day mass meeting in 2017, lee hsien loong publicly expressed his hope that " more companies and government agencies will learn from homeage and use information technology to improve people's lives." " obviously, the prime minister values not only the business model, but also the promotion of enterprises to provide solutions to the aging problem.
 
Singapore is one of the countries with the fastest aging population in Asia. local enterprises have been trying and exploring in the field of home care for the elderly. Care giver Asia is also an online health service company headquartered in Singapore, with nearly 1 million platform-certified nurses in 2016.
