Honor, a digital health startup connecting consumers with in-home caregivers, seniors and their families is expanding its service with a pilot partnership with Walmart in two stores in Dallas-Forth Worth, TX.
Honor currently operates in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles, and combines the best care professionals in the industry with proprietary app technology that modernizes the entire home-care experience, making it more flexible and accessible for family caregivers and their aging loved ones.
The company has developed a model that allows it to provide high-quality care – while driving down costs for families and driving up wages for care professionals through W2 employment. Honor has also partnered with the best and brightest industry advisors and organizations, including the American Cancer Society and National Parkinson Foundation.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Honor to work with the world’s largest retail company to offer families access to information about high-quality home care as well as ways to help Dallas-Fort Worth residents grow older in their own homes with joy, comfort and grace,” said Honor CEO and Co-Founder Seth Sternberg.
The pilot comes after Honor’s recent announcement of a $42 million Series B funding round and appointment of patient care advocate Kathryn Parsons to the Dallas General Manager post.
