Charlotte Observer

A North Carolina health-tech startup that connects affordable caregivers for seniors recently expanded to Charlotte and is using college students to fill in the gap. Through CareYaya, families can schedule in-home caregivers for certain days and times for their loved ones starting at just $15 an hour. But these aren’t your everyday caregivers — they’re college students. After beginning its pilot program at UNC Chapel Hill in 2022 and expanding to other universities in the Triangle, including N.C. State and Duke, CareYaya CEO Neal Shah said the company broadened its reach to UNC Charlotte.
