We’re always innovating 

On the cutting edge of technology

AlayaCare is at the forefront of data science and innovation. Technology is constantly evolving and its potential in health care is extraordinary. That’s why we are committed to unlocking the true power of artificial intelligence (AI). AlayaLabs, our research and development department, is leveraging AI, optimisation and machine learning technologies to propel aged and disability care towards the future. 

An organisation with heart 

The meaning behind AlayaCare

"Alaya” means “home” in Sanskrit, a language from a time in history when there were no hospitals and no doctors – and everyone was taken care of in the home. As it happens, the word “alaya” also means “elevate” in Hebrew, and in Arabic, it means “welcome”. 

The name “AlayaCare” is a nod to these three ancient languages which, together, reflect themes that are close to our heart – to care for people at home, for everyone to feel welcome and supported, and to elevate the community.
