Josh Bruno // TrepFuel: Entrepreneur Of The Week

Programming since the age of 12, the computer engineer-turned-entrepreneur Josh Bruno founded Hometeam when his family struggled to care for his 93-year-old grandfather.

He believes that home care should go beyond the basics to provide a safe, reliable, and interactive service that creates happier days for seniors. Prior to Hometeam, Josh worked as an investor, operator, and engineer at companies like Bain Ventures, Bain & Co, and Yahoo.

Bruno's startup, Hometeam, is one of a few long-term senior-care companies trying to upend that model using technology and more rigorous training and accountability for caregivers. 

Josh’s core philosophy and company’s mission is simple: “Every older adult deserves a beautiful day.”

The company’s mission is to transform the in-home care and aging experience by providing elderly clients with personalized care planning, expert caregiver matching, custom mobile technology, and proactive case management to improve older adults’ health and well-being while giving their families peace of mind.

UNLIKE UBER, ALL OF HOMETEAM’S WORKERS ARE EMPLOYEES, NOT CONTRACTORS, AND THE COMPANY PAYS THEM TWICE WHAT OTHER SUCH AGENCIES DO.

this combination of training and tech, Hometeam clients pay around $24-25 per hour. And the average client receives 44 hours per week of care.

Hometeam provides a matching model for patients and caregivers around not just medical needs, but also things like shared interests. The platform gives families increased check-in ability as well, via an iPad in every home.
