Kiran believes that until you have experienced caregiver services, you cannot truly appreciate how extraordinary it is or how wonderful the people who provide it are.
Kiran has witnessed the difference caregivers make in the lives of the people whom you love. Without the support of a home caregiver, his grandfather would have had to leave his home, away from the unbreakable bonds he made with his family, friends, and neighbors, and the precious memories he had cultivated.
Kiran has observed in awe at the warmth and kindness depicted in caregivers. Although these interactions may seem trivial, in those moments you realize how senior home care is important, and means so much to the people who need it. Years later as his own parents grew older, he decided to relocate them to live with him and his family to provide them with the best care, support, and companionship.
As Kiran began to take care of his elderly parents, he found his calling to be involved in a company that delivers exceptional caregiving services to parents such as his own. Being part of an extremely talented team that is united in delivering extraordinary care and support to their clients and their clients’ parents is a privilege for Kiran.
Kiran has been working in the IT industry in the United States for the past twenty-three years, holding a variety of roles and responsibilities. His true passion is to create a better world for people to grow older in and to inspire individuals to care for and serve the senior community.
In his free time, Kiran often takes long runs through natural trails and enjoys spending his evenings in the garden holding a cup of tea. Kiran can also be found in the kitchen with his wife, creating new recipes for his family to try.

Hursh is currently a third-year student at the University of California Santa Cruz, with a major in Business Management Economics and a minor in Technology Information Management Systems.
Prior to attending college, Hursh spent numerous years volunteering at Oakmont of San Jose, as an Assistant Activities Director for the seniors at the facility. During his time here he learned much about what the elderly want and need in their daily lives, along with how simple tasks become more complicated with old age. It was here he realized how crucial having a reliable support system can be and this what Hursh has strived to accomplish with carebuddy.
Living in the United States, Hursh has noticed that the norm is to place your parents in nursing homes. However, while this may seem practical for many families, Hursh truly believes a better alternative can be reached. Rather than sending your parents or grandparents somewhere to receive care, why not bring the care to them? With this approach, you allow your parents to stay in the comfort and independence of their home, surrounded by their family, while also providing them with the care they need and deserve.
Throughout high school, Hursh found his interest in politics when he joined the debate team. Hursh was ranked 43rd in the United States for Parliamentary Debate. In addition, he has also played the trumpet for nine years and was a member of his school’s A-League varsity tennis team.
Outside of his academic life, Hursh also enjoys learning more about the mechanics of cars and spends much of his free time with his friends and family.
