Now Bay Area families can get high-quality help for seniors in just 2 hours.

Honor, the San Francisco–based leader in quality home care, announces Honor Now, a groundbreaking service that guarantees an Honor Care Coordinator will be there in just 2 hours. For the first time ever, Bay Area families seeking care for older loved ones will not have to wait to get the help they urgently need.

“When families need home care, it can take many hours or even days for professional help to arrive. Honor is changing that,” said Seth Sternberg, CEO and co-founder of Honor. “Honor Now is especially helpful after surgery or a medical crisis when patients are being discharged. The timing is always unpredictable. But having great, skilled care is a necessity for a healthy recovery.”

The opportunity to help families is huge. Every day, over 10,000 baby boomers will be turning 65—for the next 19 years. That means the population of Americans over 65 will nearly double to 84 million between now and 2050.

“As an increasing number of individuals wish to age at home, there is a rapidly growing need for high quality reliable home care,” said Dr. Philip Pizzo, Founding Director of the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, which is affiliated with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and former Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. “Having high quality home care services that are easily accessible, reliable and affordable would be an exceptional resource for our healthcare system – which Honor has the potential to deliver.”

Honor is able to offer a quick, quality home care solution by combining the best Care Professionals with easy-to-use apps that make managing care fast and easy—from anywhere.

“What makes Honor special is the people—the quality of care is everything to us,” adds Sternberg. “We use technology to ensure our clients receive the highest level of service. Our apps also make it much easier for Care Pros to do their job and manage their clients efficiently. So everyone wins.”
