ConsidraCare: Revolutionizing Senior Home Care Globally 

ConsidraCare is a Brampton-based startup on a mission to make senior home care more accessible and affordable globally. Founded by Saba Tauseef and Tauseef Riaz, ConsidraCare was born from the personal challenges of its co-founders, who each experienced a critical lack of empathy in Canadian and global healthcare, especially for seniors. Saba Tauseef, an anesthesiologist and public health expert with extensive global experience, was deeply affected by her father’s end-of-life experience. At the same time, Tauseef Riaz, her husband, who has previously invested, built, and scaled businesses in over 30 countries, witnessed first-hand the hardships seniors faced in receiving compassionate, dignified care in Canada. Motivated by their personal experiences, they both walked away from their careers. They created ConsidraCare, aiming to provide accessible, high-quality senior care worldwide, ensuring that everyone can age with dignity and respect. 

What Does ConsidraCare Do? 

ConsidraCare is an agetech startup that bridges families, caregivers, and seniors with real-time care delivery updates and unparalleled transparency. Their unique app empowers caregivers to focus on care over paperwork, while their platform proactively identifies potential issues and keeps everyone in the circle of care. Since its launch in 2022, they have achieved 5-star ratings for over 16,000 hours of compassionate care delivered to families in and around the GTA. With their first international pilot planned in Asia this year, they’re poised to reshape the $0.6 Tr global senior care market. 

How Has the Incubator/Accelerator Program Helped ConsidraCare? 

ConsidraCare has found an ideal thriving ground in Brampton, fueled by its diverse entrepreneurial spirit, exceptional municipal support for startups, and robust incubation ecosystem focused on leveling the playing field for underrepresented founders like them. They were fast-tracked by the Altitude Accelerator, who provided strategic guidance, industry connections, and investor introductions. With Altitude’s assistance, they achieved substantial market traction, brand recognition, and valuable strategic and commercial partnerships in just six months post-launch. Altitude Accelerator provided intensive sessions on Cap Table, Valuation, Data Room, Go to Market, IP Coaching, Financial Modeling, and Cybersecurity from their advisors/teachers/investors. ConsidraCare has also gone through a few of its Champion Panels, including Investor Review, to get them investor-ready.
