Senior citizens are the fastest-growing population segment in India and the COVID crisis has exposed the gaps in our medical infrastructure, putting a huge question mark on the access of health for the elderly.

In this episode of The Spotlight, Akshay Datt speaks with Saumyajit Roy who with Emoha Elder Care is aiming to create a lifeline for India’s elderly. He is an alumnus of the Indian School of Business and has worked in the eldercare industry for over a decade before kicking off his entrepreneurial journey.

It was when his parents faced a medical emergency in his absence, he realized that there is a huge opportunity to develop a tech-based, holistic eldercare service platform. In 2019, he started Emoha, a subscription-based eldercare platform that delivers single-click access to a range of health, emergency, and social-engagement services.

Tune in to this episode to hear Saumyajit speak about how Emoha is rewiring and reinventing eldercare services in India with love and tech.
