In Nigeria, it is not unusual for families to care for elderly relatives at home despite the specialized healthcare needs associated with aging. However, harsh economic conditions and urbanization are sending more working-class Nigerians farther away from home.
GeroCare is an affordable subscription-based medical service for the elderly that entitles them to regular doctor home visits. The service advocates preventive healthcare for the elderly as opposed to waiting until something goes wrong. Loved ones can provide access to regular medical care for their aging parents or family in Nigeria irrespective of where they live or work.
