Founded by caregivers, trusted by families
In 2007, a few friends who were each caring for an aging parent noticed the lack of online resources to help them navigate the complexities of caregiving. Not finding what they needed, they decided to create it themselves. The result was Caring.com.
Today, our company is filled with people passionate about serving seniors and caregivers — including you. We’ve assisted millions of families nationwide, and we’re on a mission to help as many as possible through our empathetic, expert guidance.

Senior Family Advisor
I have been a Family Advisor at Caring.com for several years. I really enjoy working with our families and seniors and assisting them with their senior care service needs. There is great satisfaction when I find the right services for a senior in need and I give a family peace of mind. I am passionate about the work that I do. At the end of every day, I know that I am making a difference in a family’s life.
Senior Family Advisor
In my role as a Family Advisor I am an advocate for our seniors. I've been in their shoes and dealt with the same issues with my own family members. This allows me the ability to empathize and help find the right solutions for them, whether it be senior living, in-home care or the many other services we offer. It is truly a privilege and an honor to help so many families when they need help the most.

I love working at Caring.com. I love helping people and Caring.com allows me the opportunity to do this every day. To be able to help our seniors and their families find the perfect resources in just a few minutes is so very rewarding. We can set their mind at ease and give them the best options for their loved ones. It is a calling, not a job!
Learn more about senior living and senior care
There are multiple types of care and communities available, so it's important to know which is the best fit for your needs.
At costs ranging from $1,200 to $8,000 per month, assisted living communities are a great choice for someone who needs help with activities of daily living, such as eating, grooming and bathing. Many also offer respite care (short-term stays).
Memory care communities are specially designed living environments for people with Alzheimer's or other dementias. You can expect that staff members have extra training to help people with memory loss. Costs are $3,000 per month and up. Some also provide respite care.
For help with driving, getting around the house, meal preparation, companionship, and light housekeeping, hire a professional caregiver through an in-home care agency. Caregivers can be hired on a one-time basis or a regular monthly schedule. Rates usually range from $20 to $40 per hour.
Independent living communities are great for residents who want to enjoy the perks of community living, but who don't need regular assistance with activities of daily living. Costs range from $1,000 to $4,000 per month.
Also called skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), nursing homes are staffed by skilled medical professionals who can provide 24-hour support. Some also offer short-term stays for someone who is transferring from the hospital but not yet ready to go home.
Hospice care helps provide comfort to your loved one in their last days. Care teams specialize in keeping pain and suffering to a minimum. This care is often provided at home, but care teams can also go to a hospital or other care facility to provide relief.
