You want to be there for your loved one, so do we

Every family should be connected to the care they need, when they need it, so their loved ones can live with dignity and independence. Our technology will make this possible.

Inspired by families

Our founding team have been fortunate enough to know the love and friendship of Grandparents long into adult life – and the very special nature of these relationships.

Great care made this possible. The care of family members, and the care of professionals.

That’s why our mission now is to reimagine support for all older people and use technology to put the care of your loved one at your fingertips.

Compassion for all

We believe that every person has the right to live their later years with dignity and respect.

We want to lessen the stress of finding and organising care, so families can concentrate on what matters most – spending quality time with the people they love.

For us this epitomises compassion for all, bodhicitta, the Buddhist concept of a compassionate mind, that combines wisdom and compassion to help all sentient beings.

Our Team

At Sweet Pea we want to reimagine how people find and interact with the care they need for their loved ones

Our team has more than 30 years’ experience working with many of the UK’s leading social care providers.

We know what quality, personalised care looks like – and we want to make it accessible to everyone.

We are driven to demystify, educate, connect and remove the jargon around later life care. It shouldn’t be a challenge or a struggle.

Technology is changing almost every area of our lives, and at Sweet Pea we use tech to do the most human thing of all – care.
