We discuss the challenges associated with delivering home care to the aging population, a problem made more acute with the COVID19 crisis, and even more important to solve. Importantly this is not a replacement for human caregivers but rather an augmentation that can be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Listen in to hear about Addison, a state-of-the-art, 3D animated caregiver, who offers support for seniors and those living with chronic conditions helping increase access to scarce healthcare resources.
