The Vision Behind Parent Projects

During the engaging conversation, Bina provided invaluable insights into Parent Projects, an innovative platform designed to help families navigate the care journey for their aging loved ones. At its core, Parent Projects offers services like:

Parent Projects Connect: This powerful tool allows families to relay information, update medical records, schedule appointments, and stay connected regardless of their geographic locations. With a low $8 monthly fee, it’s an affordable solution that keeps everyone in the loop.

Compassionate Concierge – A Guiding Light

As a free service under the Parent Projects umbrella, Compassionate Concierge offers a 45-60 minute call with an advisor who can provide personalized resources, tips, and guidance based on your loved one’s unique situation. This service is a game-changer for families feeling lost or overwhelmed on the care journey.

A Trusted Network of Verified Businesses

Parent Projects thoroughly vets and verifies businesses across 74 categories that serve the senior population. This allows families to access trusted service providers for home care, home health, and other needs, even from long distances.

A Personal Journey

Fueling Passion As a Gerontologist, Bina’s expertise shines through. She understands the complexities faced by the “sandwich generation” – those caring for aging parents while raising their own families and maintaining careers. Her personal experience also provides relatable insights into supporting loved ones with conditions like early-onset dementia.

Empowering Families Through Connection

One standout feature of Parent Projects is the ability to grant caregivers permission-based access to specific sections of the Connect platform. This seamless communication between families and care providers ensures everyone remains updated on the loved one’s well-being.
