It covers the entire gamut of home healthcare services, including post-discharge care, bedridden care, chronic pain care, physiotherapy, infant care, pre-natal and post-natal care, everyday medical nursing, geriatric care and assisted daily living.

Care24 currently claims to serve 50 new patients a day and plans to add new service verticals. The company is also looking at adding travel assistants and equipment renting as part of the platform in the future.

According to the startup, rapid urbanisation, nuclear families, working couples, and the hectic modern life that disrupts work-life balance has raised the need for medicare aid that is skilled, reliable and convenient.
