Atlanta Journal-Constitution Features CareYaya

Caregiving is a public health sector that affects millions of Americans. According to the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the need for caregivers is expected to only increase with time. Currently, there are an estimated seven potential family caregivers per U.S. adult. But by 2030, that estimate is expected to shrink to four. As the country’s population of older adults continues to grow, the number will continue to shrink.

North Carolina startup CareYaya is getting creative with finding ways fill the most critical gaps in today’s caregiving industry. Described as “Uber for caregiving,” CEO and co-founder Neal Shah told Hypepotamus that the platform is designed to connect older adults in need of care with tech-savvy college students ready to help.
