Families face increasing responsibilities for end of life care. This heavy burden on families consumes large and often hidden costs.
With a personal commitment to a legacy of better human health, Richard Carpenter has proven abilities in leadership, strategic partnerships, life sciences, and high-powered start-up companies that change the world.
Richard Carpenter took care of both his father and mother at the end of their life. Richard built an addition onto his house and they came to live with his family. Throughout the process of increasingly complex healthcare and status, Richard worked with his cousins and siblings to create a loving caring team along with their home care aid, Jennifer, visiting nurses, physical therapists and hospice nurses and aids.
The result of lessons learned, the HandOff web application provides a cloud-based set of tools that the Carpenter family implemented to cope with daily end of life care.
