The NurseBuddy Story

Helping home care workers has always been at the heart of NurseBuddy. Our founders, Simo and Antero both had relatives and friends working as care workers and they saw every day how demanding the work is.

There are many people in need of care, but with limited resources, there is a constant deficit of carers. With long days and intense pressure on carers, there is always a need for more time, but no one can add hours to a day.

Until one day Simo and Antero, two enthusiastic guys from Finland, realised that they can help their close ones by combining their two passions: technology and healthcare. They founded NurseBuddy in 2012 and for the first two years, they shadowed care workers and worked with them to design software that helps home care managers and carers with their work.

Sure, they couldn’t add more hours to a day, but instead, they were able to save care workers’ and home care managers’ time in administrative tasks like scheduling, monitoring, reporting and invoicing, leaving more time for care.

Nowadays Simo and Antero have a team of 14 people helping home care agencies in the UK, Finland and Ireland to have more time for care. As the ageing population and growing need for adult social care are global trends leading to increasing demand for health technology, our goal is to help home care managers and care workers all around the world to make grannies and grandpas happy.
