CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The need for caregivers is growing across South Carolina and here in the Lowcountry.

By 2030, South Carolina will need 41,850 caregivers to support the population according to The Alzheimer’s Association. That’s a 31% increase from 2020.

A new app is connecting college-educated caregivers with families, and it’s now expanded to two Lowcountry colleges.


It’s called CareYaya. The company’s CEO and Co-founder said expanding to the College of Charleston and Charleston Southern University has introduced over 100 additional students to their care network so far.
