Nigerians are taking their rightful place in the Tech Ecosystem. More than ever, they understand what it means to solve a problem or the very least ” try to solve a problem.”

I tell people that I meet and interact with on a daily basis that; what is happening in the Tech Ecosystem in Nigeria will have much more effect and impact than the Entertainment Industry. Especially now that great content is a luxury for discerning minds. Yes, it is going to take some time and a lot of work, but value is a timeless commodity and as long as you continue to give value, your services will most definitely be patronized. So kudos to all those who are out there trying to make the world a better place by giving value.

The GeroCare team is one of those people. They set out to ensure that you receive value from their services and so, they decided to create an impact in the Health Sector through HealthTech.

You know, I really didn’t realize how important their service was until I found myself in the position of wanting to provide better care for my parents… In my case, family has been a lot helpful but then, not all of us have that privilege.  Life is happening every day and very soon it will be our own turn to need such care. It is a cycle and we can make each turn better by improving on existing infrastructure and services that make life much more enjoyable for elderly people.

Subscribing to GeroCare’s service gives one access to regular doctor visits for their parents and elderly ones who need care, they didn’t end there, on your mobile phone, you can get real-time updates on how your parents are doing health wise as well as emotionally and psychologically from any where you are in the world.

The most exciting thing about their service is, you can make a choice of detecting and preventing illnesses on time rather than their service being “managing a situation” or “being a corrective” scenario. They achieve this by giving you access to quality doctors anywhere you are in Nigeria. Either way, they provide a more efficient and effective means of caring for your parents leaving you with peace of mind knowing that they are in good hands.

Before you think of sending your parents to an elderly care home in Lagos, Nigeria or any other part of the country for that matter, GeroCare is a service that you should try out. They give your parents the uniqueness of being properly catered for without necessarily having to leave the comforts of their homes.
