CareSpotter’s Mission

About 1

As Rosalynn Carter said, "There are only four kinds of people in this world: Those who have been caregivers; Those who currently are caregivers; Those who will be caregivers; And those who will need caregivers."

CareSpotter's mission is to support all those who are, have been, will be and will need caregivers. For families, CareSpotter is dedicated to helping you find the best caregiver and feel secure in your choice. All CareSpotter caregivers must pass an intensive 5-step vetting process, and we're here to guide you through the unfamiliar caregiver hiring and management process. For professional caregivers, CareSpotter supports you locally, creating a community caregiver meetup group in each city we launch, and by providing monthly online training and conference calls.

Being a caregiver, whether professionally or for your own family is not easy, but it is the highest honor. And we are honored to support this part of life’s journey.

Why we started CareSpotter

About 2

In 2012, I needed to find a caregiver for my dear mother who was battling cancer. The hospital case manager gave us a list of homecare agencies, but there were no ratings or testimonials, no way of knowing which were good and which to avoid. When I contacted the agency, I couldn't speak with the caregiver before they sent them to my mom's home. My mother was my hero, and at her most vulnerable, I didn't want to risk letting a stranger choose the wrong caregiver, so I left my job and took care of my mom full time. Families should have more power in this difficult situation.

Later I found out poorly caregivers were paid despite the tremendous need. Many caregivers make poverty wages, and more than 40 percent rely on government assistance. But being a caregiver is very hard, important work, and these critical professionals should have the opportunity to make a living wage. So I started CareSpotte r so families could choose their own caregiver, and professional caregivers could make a living wage while still being much less than agency fees.

I am proud to have been a caregiver, and CareSpotter is honored to work with families and caregivers. If you ever have any questions or thoughts, please reach out - we love to be a part of this amazing community.
