I had two moments that gave me a brainwave. The first was when my father was diagnosed with the most advanced stage of cancer. The doctor said if he had come for check-up earlier it would have been arrested well in time and his life span would be prolonged. If he had a reliable home healthcare giver, it would have been noticed before, it became critical. Secondly my sister's baby was hurt in hot water by a home carer who had no training. When this happened, I wondered about the safety of kids left at home to the mercy of home carers, and the safety of home carers themselves. Then I thought an agency which catered to these needs would be beneficial to prolong life and foster home care.
