Connecting families with caregivers
As life expectancy increases and the population ages, the need for appropriate care for the elderly becomes more pressing. Many elderly people face having to leave their homes for group homes or retirement communities against their will. Families with an elderly relative are looking for alternative care that is more flexible and affordable for the long term.
HomeTouch is a new online service that connects elderly people with vetted, experienced caregivers. Families with an elderly relative can log into the website and input their zip code to search for nearby caregivers.
