My dad’s first stroke caught us all by surprise in 2009. Like most caregivers, I was not prepared at all to face the long road ahead. I had just gotten married and had a baby on the way, I had to move cities, change jobs, and completely adjust my own life to the new reality. After my dad’s second stroke, I knew that something needed to be done to help the more than 47 Million caregivers in the United States who go through these same situations every single year. I had to think about how today’s emerging technologies could come together and provide both the caregivers and care recipients a better way to handle these challenges; how it could actually bridge the gap and provide support to the things that matter most in life. Hence, OnGuardian was born.
