Simon Hooper is a co-founder of Health-Connected Ltd, the company behind RemindMeCare. He and Etienne Abrahams are on a mission to bring tech to the care process, courtesy of personal experience of the lack of person-centred care tech available during their own families care journeys. With deep experience of the start-up journey, from conception to crowd funding, incubators to accelerators and having worked for 4 years with care groups, those cared for in the community, hospital wards and care organisations, Simon's developed a broad knowledge of the care sector and its potential for tech adoption. At the core of everything they build is their belief that knowing the person and engaging in fun activities must be at the heart of the care process.View at: https://www.remindmecare.com/
