The Road to Forsent Health & Eva
A note from our Co-founder and CTO, Stuart Ogawa:
I am Stu, one of the co-founders of Forsent Health and our CTO.
Eva was developed after becoming a caregiver for my mom, who has dementia, and providing her with 18 months of caregiving. Receiving calls from Mom between 1AM to 4AM, became a regular event. Hearing the confusion and anxiety in her voice, and knowing I was limited in my ability to help her on the spot, drove me to come up with Eva.
Mom would call and ask questions such as, “Did you pay the property taxes?”, “Is Joshua still coaching gymnastics?”, and “Is Camden still playing piano?”. Only 15 minutes later, Mom would call again asking the same questions; this would go on all night.
One evening over dinner while exhausted, I was talking with my wife and it dawned on me. What if we had a voice-assistant like application that could answer Mom’s questions and comments? It would save me from sheer physical and mental exhaustion, and help me be a more loving and patient father and husband by having more time and mental space.
Eva was born, over dinner, in late August 2017.
How did we come up with the name Eva? Eva is one of our guinea pigs; Eva is the brown pig on the right, and Jennifer is the pig on the left.
I couldn’t be more excited to be on this journey of building Eva to bring happiness into the lives of caregivers and seniors.
