OUR STORY

We come from decades of experience working in home care and selling home medical equipment. We also have a lot of loved ones who need a lot of care.

We were frustrated with the lack of solutions on the market to suit our family and business needs, so we created our own!

We developed a remote personal care home monitoring platform that is non-intrusive, non-interaction based, non-wifi based, analytics-prioritized, and customizable, that is real-time with live monitoring and live response. We offer peace of mind to families looking for someone to watch over their loved one or themselves, with no false alarms keeping you up all night.

OUR MISSION

To promote independence, provide a cost effective service, access to weekly activity reports to allow safe and secure aging in place wherever our clients call home.

HOW WE DO IT

Consult

We begin with a free in-home consultation. Once signed, we install a motion-activated camera system and a HIPAA-friendly secure communication device to transfer live-stream to our monitoring center.

Monitor

Our live monitors can engage in real-time to respond, report and record urgent or emergency situations through a customized care plan you prescribe.

Report

Through monitoring, we collect activity data to assist families & clinicians to better manage clients & update care plans.

Kristen Nervo Dowey, CEO

Kristen has bounced all over with 10 years of experience across multiple industries including consumer products, healthcare, and higher education, from early stage to industry leader.

Kristen attended Boston College Carroll School of Management for her undergrad studying business with a minor in American Studies. In college she worked for a hair salon in her native Ohio and a mapping software company in SoCal. 

After graduating, she managed product development at Abercrombie and Fitch.  She then ventured to Florida to work for a jeweler to lead marketing and learn graphic design. Simultaneously, she realized self-financing BC was akin to taking out a mortgage minus the house, so to stay afloat she founded a consulting company to work with startups and take on positions including the Creative Director of Kitu Super Coffee, where she developed materials and strategy to secure their spot on NBC’s SharkTank and win the Peter Thiel Fellowship.

She was unexpectedly recruited by her Alma Mater to build an alumni platform and teach a 1-credit career prep course to freshmen. She has since returned to Northeast Ohio and founded a new company, OneKey Virtual Care, in the home care technology space.
