Caring.com

Caring.com exists to help family caregivers like you make better decisions, save time and money and feel less alone.

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.
Caring.com is a leading online destination for caregivers seeking  information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses, and  other loved ones. It offers  thousands of original articles, helpful  tools, advice from more than 50 leading experts, a community of  caregivers, and a comprehensive directory of caregiving services.
