London-based social care startup Lifted, founded by Rachael Crook and Sam Cohen, has raised £1.5 million in seed funding for an end-to-end elderly care platform.
The Care Management Platform is a way to schedule visits, keep a check on tasks that have been completed and receive notifications when care begins and ends.
Lifted is a CQC-regulated care provider, which gives families real-time updates on care and a set of wellness data about their loved ones.
