LOS ANGELES (September 10, 2019)—Tandem Careplanning, a public benefit corporation led by technology-based business leader Joshua Greer, introduces a new caregiving solution in the Greater Los Angeles area to help clients and caregivers obtain and manage in-home care relationships with full support throughout the process. Founded by Lisa and Joshua Greer as CaregiversDirect, Tandem Careplanning is the culmination of four years of research, testing and working directly with clients and caregivers.
“We took a holistic look at the industry to pinpoint client and caregiver wants and needs. We then spent several years perfecting our platform,” said Greer. “Tandem Careplanning was purposefully built from the ground up to be a superior solution for homecare, offering unlimited support, guidance and empowerment to everyone, at every step of their unique journey.”
With more than 24% of Californians over age 65 reporting a fair to poor health status, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates an unprecedented need for a robust homecare workforce. Yet, meeting this demand, and providing consistent, quality care is complex given the industry’s history of low pay and high turnover rates. Tandem Careplanning’s model improves these challenges by offering career support as well as fair compensation for caregiver time and expertise. The model focuses heavily on guiding clients to develop their own care plans that facilitate lasting and consistent support.
“As the average age of the population increases, it is imperative that we improve reliability and trust in the homecare system. This means not only supporting the people who need care but also the professional caregivers on which the nation will become more and more dependent,” Greer stated. “We address these issues through transparent wages, rigorous vetting, free training, and 24-hour live support for both caregivers and clients to guarantee continuous, quality care.”
From a community of caregivers, clients can meet and select the professionals that are the best fit for them. Caregivers offer a wide variety of long and short-term services including meal planning and preparation, medication reminders, bathing, errands and shopping, transportation, appointment accompaniment, transferring and mobility, light exercise, feeding assistance, dressing, grooming and hygiene, and companionship.
