How it all started
Kintell was founded in 2017 by Aaron Johnston, Zoe Morgan and Paul Hewitt, after Zoe and Paul’s successful exit from a live-in care company (The Good Care Group). They had noticed that by the time people reach the need for full-time care, they’ve missed a vital point of intervention which could have prolonged their independence. They teamed up with Aaron, who previously created Tech Toys, to build a device which could be that intervention.
Why is what we’re doing so important?
The number of people aged 65+ is projected to rise by over 40 per cent in the next 17 years to over 16 million and it’s expected that more than a million people over the age of 65 will need round-the-clock care during the next 20 years. This is going to add even more strain on struggling healthcare services and busy families, as well as potentially taking away the option that older people really want – to remain independent in their own home.
That’s where we come in
We wanted to create a device which could empower and enable older people to live independently, in their own homes for longer. Reducing the need for support and improving their confidence and happiness.
We aim to do this by taking a proactive approach to
How Kintell works
