Cara: Your peace of mind.


“How have you been today, mom? Did you get outside at all?”

We know you can’t squeeze all your questions into a five-minute phone call. That’s why we started Cara: an app that connects you to your loved ones Care Circle, allowing you to stay in the know about their well-being.

Cara: The system walkthrough ︎︎︎




Patent-pending on the Cara system as of April 27th, 2021.

How can we check-in
on our loved ones
without physically
being there?


Without being in constant contact, how can we make sure our loved ones are alive and well? And how can we do it while respecting their privacy and still providing them with great quality care?

My passion for research specifically sparked my interest to start Cara, especially with COVID-19 and how it has emphasized some of the negatives associated with facilitated care.
