Introduction to Senior Home Safety and Comfort

Do you know that one of the top fears of growing old is not being able to live in your own home. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level". Every year, more and more seniors and their families are exploring to age in place instead of moving to aged care facilities.

To help families assess their options, we have released a FREE GUIDE on Introduction to Senior Home Safety and Comfort.

Check Us Out At Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE!

 

Our team is geared up and ready to exhibit at Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE in San Francisco this week on October 12-14. During the past few months, we’ve been hard at work developing innovative robotic technologies that revolutionize senior home care. We’re working with our partners, such as Home Care Assistance, on breakthrough pilot programs that incorporate our robots into the daily lives of seniors. Our robots are designed to be fun, easy-to-use, and customizable and we hope that seniors and their families and caregivers have a spontaneous and delightful time using them.

Engaging with new users through Pilot Programs

The OhmniLabs team has been busy lately working with partners to pilot test our robots in different home care agencies and retirement communities across the San Francisco Bay Area. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to interact with elders and caregivers at these facilities, while also learning about the pain points in their daily lives.

The Heritage Pointe, an independent senior living facility in Walnut Creek, CA is one of our new test sites. We are placing our robots in a common area where elders gather for their daily activities, which allows their family members to virtually visit and join them during these activities.

Introduction to OhmniLabs - Who we are

Hello! We’re Ohmnilabs, founded by Thuc Vu, Jared Go and Tingxi Tan. Our work is to create affordable and capable home robots that redefines the aging-in-place experience.

Why we’re doing what we’re doing

As our parents grow old, we are worried of their well-being especially if they are living by themselves. We have found that there is a deep and vital need for a better way to help independently-living elders live more comfortably in their own homes. Because we personally feel this need ourselves with our own families, we have turned this into our passion project. As a team, we bring experience in the tech and startup industries, a blend of disciplines, and diverse technical expertise in hardware and software to the table.
