At the end of February tech-savvy private duty startup HomeHero announced it was ceasing operations, now the company is changing names and changing its focus to telehealth.
 
The company had become a source of competition to traditional private duty agencies by using a technology-based model featuring a list of online caregivers, leading many to call HomeHero and similar companies the “Uber” of elder care.

Hill says in the post that Harvey has been accepting clients for five months.
