The Helper Bees overview

The Helper Bees has developed a service to connect seniors directly to local helpers. The Helper Bees improves the home care process for care-recipient, caregiver, family and insurance carrier by improving outcomes and decreasing costs.

The Helper Bees offer a combination of digital technology and in-home care services, such as personality-based matching for home caregivers. Helpers may be caregivers, they may run errands, they may do housework, or they may simply sit and chat.

The company claims that insurance carriers who use its digital claims technology and in-home care services see on average a 20% cost savings on their home care reimbursements.

In June 2020 CNA launched The View From Home, a new program to help long-term care policyholders age independently a home for longer, in partnership with The Helper Bees.

The Helper Bees raised $6m in Series A funding in July 2020.

In August 2021 The Helper Bees announced a new partnership with TCARE - a CMS-approved solution that prevents informal caregiver burnout. The aim of this partnership is to move toward the shared goal of driving better health outcomes and improving the quality of life for care givers and their loved ones.

In January 2022 Helpers Bees secured a $12.8M Series B funding round to help Americans age independently. The announcement comes following a significant period growth in recent months - Helper Bees' revenue has increased threefold in just over a year, with their team team size increasing eight times.

In April 2022 Helper Bees revealed it was working on creating a Ageing-in-Place platform, placing a Request for Information for providers to help them provide more care and support services to help support elderly populations age independently. It is currently working on new services such as meals, home modification and errands after seeing a four-fold growth in demand for such offerings across 2021, but wants to create an even wider network to transform how senior citizens can age independently at home.
