Live better in your own home.

We do home care differently – more control, empowering technology, more hours of care and exceptional service. Get more from your home care provider.

There are only a few places on earth where people live longer, happier and healthier lives. The people living in these zones share a key thing in common: friendship. The power of friendship is believed to contribute to a much better quality of life in old age.

This understanding is not only reflected in our name – it is our guiding philosophy.

Inspired by the world’s most long-lived cultures, our mission is to help people live vibrantly in their own homes, connected to their friends and communities, doing what they love.

We will meet with you to understand your needs and design a personalised plan so it’s easier for you to manage your health and care needs at home. This allows our Members to stay in control and maintain their independence.

Smarter technology, better outcomes.

Backed by our intelligent technology, we can ensure better outcomes for our Members. Our insightful data helps us keep track of your health, wellbeing, and satisfaction. We use this to understand what works best for you, and to detect problems early before they become serious.
