Brief abstract of your idea or proposal:
PLATFORM FOR ELDERLY NURSING HOMES DATA COMPARISON
We aim to gather information about Elderly Homes through the:
1. List of government
2. Google Reviews
...to create a "Yelp" for elderly homes through Natural Language Processing.
As of now, we are zooming in to Hong Kong, as our starting point.
In the short-term: We aim to bring to the table information for nursing home search amidst COVID-19.
In the long-term: We envision elderly home being conducive to creating a free, transparent competitive ecosystem for the nursing home
For Connecting the elderly with others: There's a related or existing platform that slightly resembles our initial idea - AuPair.com.
As for data comparison of elderly homes, SeniorCare and Medicare.gov, also provides information we aim to provide.
