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.
