In 2007, a few friends who were each caring for an aging parent noticed a lack of information online to help them navigate the complexities of caregiving. Not finding the one-stop online resource they needed, they decided to create it themselves. The result was Caring.com.
Today, our company is filled with people working to make a difference for others. Here are a few members of the team and what caregiving means to them.
Debi LaBell, Community Manager
Caring for my mother in the last months of her life was one of the hardest experiences that I have ever gone through, but something that I wouldn't trade for the world. Our time together gave me amazing memories to hold onto after she was gone.
Diane McLaughlin, Family Advisor
After my husband suffered a stroke I became his primary caregiver. I am so thankful for the resources that Caring.com provided and for the amazing opportunity to work here helping others find senior care resources.
Erin Stephens, Family Advisor
To know that I took some of the frustration and stress off of a family just trying to find a safe and comfortable place for their loved one warms my heart, I know that someday I will need the same and hope I am lucky enough to find it.

Very prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and patient. Ron called me back to follow through and offered to answer any questions even on his day off.
Kay, in Dallas
Carla was very friendly and helpful and offered many suggestions. Both my wife and I were pleased with her attitude and general concern for our situation. We both felt like she genuinely cared and wanted to help us get the best care for my father possible.

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.
