The cofounders’ inspiration for Linkt Care began from caregiving experience and grew through academic research with innovators in dementia care. In 2020, the cofounders were thrust into the role of caregiver for a loved one living with dementia and experienced its tremendous physical and emotional toll. They experienced firsthand the current lack of support and practical tools for the millions of other caregivers who are navigating the obscurity of dementia at home.
Motivated to lead change through innovation, they bridged their experience in healthcare technology with academic research at UCLA Health to design an empathetic solution that reduces caregiver burden by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI).
Our mission is to transform home care so that caregivers of persons living with dementia are proactively informed and aligned to deliver care that meets the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the care recipient as they change over time.
