A CareYaya Success Story

Sandra lives in North Carolina, but her son, Edward, lives in Texas. After a medical incident, Edward became increasingly concerned that his mother was alone at home for extended amounts of time. Sandra's medical team recommended CareYaya as a resource and Edward booked recurring appointments for Tuesday afternoons. Over a few weeks, Sandra delighted a local student each week from NC State and UNC Chapel Hill with her piano skills - Sandra had spent her career as a music teacher in the local high school and still remembers every musical she directed. Eventually, Sandra formed a bond with Lily, a junior at NC State who is applying to PA school next year. Lily played the violin growing up and was happy to find someone with similar interests. -- change this to be attributable to "an individual" from their perspective

Happier caregivers provide better care

Isn't it obvious?

Better pay

Caregivers earn more through CareYaya – typically 32% higher than they would at other in home care work.

Backed by research

Ample research in aging care and gerontology tell us what common sense already suggests: happier caregivers provide better care.

Low-cost by design

Our care management platform allows caregivers to earn what you pay them, and cuts out the large middleman fees charged by most providers.

Better education

By recruiting caregivers from local colleges, CareYaya upholds a standard of quality that gives you confidence in your care.

A caregiver reading to a loved one.

It's time for a new way forward in care.

Care services follow the same old model established decades ago, with little attention to innovation and quality improvement. Care providers focus their resources on competitive marketing, instead of improving care quality.
