Nigerian Students in UK Launch Healthcare Startup for Elderly

Three Nigerian students studying in the United Kingdom have launched a startup aimed at providing healthcare services to the elderly. The startup, founded by Damilola Olaopa, along with his co-founders Hameed Abdulrahaman and Samuel Isatayo, originates from their Master’s studies in the UK.

The idea for the startup was sparked when Olaopa witnessed a colleague, who worked as a healthcare assistant, lose his father on October 1, 2023. This experience led him to conceptualize a venture dedicated to offering healthcare services to the elderly.

Their plans include expanding the startup’s reach across Europe and other countries like the US and Canada. Currently, the startup, named Sandfortcare Limited, is focused on serving Nigerians living in the UK. It is registered as a private company under the Companies Act 2006 and operates from Scotland.

Abdulrahaman explained that Sandfortcare is committed to providing personalized and compassionate healthcare and support services to the parents of Nigerians residing in the UK. The aim is to ensure that parents in Nigeria receive tailored, high-quality care to give peace of mind to their children in the UK.

Isatayo outlined the subscription-based model, which entails parents in Nigeria receiving personalized care plans, regular health checks, nutrition and meal planning, remote consultations, and medication management for a monthly fee. Meanwhile, the family members in the UK sponsoring the service would receive timely parent wellness reports.
