Being in business for us is personal. As a matter of fact, the whole reason we started the company is because of our father, Michael who wanted to maintain his independence as he was recovering from a stroke. He was living in his home and we were increasingly worried about his safety and wellbeing. The personal emergency alarms available at the time were falling short of our expectations when it came to quality and reliability so we had to take action. That’s how the mCareWatch came about back in 2012.
The ‘m’ in mCareWatch stands for ‘Michael’ and recognises our father as the inspiration behind the company.
What makes us different?
We are an Australian owned and operated business providing technology solutions to assist the elderly, people with disabilities and those concerned about their personal safety. We’ve realised early on that it was important for us to manage and maintain the end to end software development process in order to keep innovating for our customers.
As such, we’ve been able to perfect and customise our solutions to support thousands of individuals who rely on our technology for their day to day activities, independence and safety. We are also working closely with aged care providers, occupational therapists, disability agencies and family violence service providers who are able to assist their clients by using our technology.
Further to that, we are a tight knit team driven by a common purpose of wanting to leave a legacy and help those most vulnerable in our society. Our employees are regular volunteers and we often get involved in sponsoring community events. We embrace our team’s cultural diversity and advocate for remote and flexible working conditions.
