Kare Visits LLC assembles a mobile workforce to provide relief for busy caregivers.

Kare Visits' CEO & Founder Teri McElrath

Caregivers are working adults struggling to manage multigenerational households. The population is aging so rapidly, all agencies are struggling to keep up with demand.

Kare Visits LLC. launched in Chicago in response to the need to provide support for busy caregivers. Kare Visits offers relief for caregivers by visiting loved ones in nursing homes, hospitals, and assisted living facilities. According to the Caregiver Action Network, eight in ten caregivers are employed. Caregivers spend an average of 20 hours a week caring for an elderly or disabled loved one. For a fraction of the cost to hire a nurse, a caregiver is now empowered to schedule an on demand visit with a trained consultant within minutes. This empowers caregivers to take a look at schedules and fill in the gaps where they need help. Often, caregivers are unable to visit loved ones on a daily basis. This leads to worry, stress, and feeling overwhelmed. In many cases, caregivers just want to know that their loved ones are ok.

“While taking care of my grandmother who suffered from Dementia, I had the opportunity to connect with remarkable caregivers across the country. The recurring message is that caregivers need more support from the government and social organizations. These caregivers are working adults struggling to manage multigenerational households. The population is aging so rapidly, all agencies are struggling to keep up with demand. The future of elderly care will require global mobilization of a workforce that leverages the power of technology to provide relief”, (Teri McElrath, CEO & Founder, Kare Visits).

Kare Visits plans are to create 10-15 jobs in the Chicagoland Area by Q4 2015. Kare Visits’ consultants complete 12 hours of caregiver ethics and elder abuse prevention training. The Kare Visits’ consultants conduct a comprehensive analysis during scheduled visits. Upon completion of the visits, a real time update is forwarded to the primary caregivers. The Kare Visits’ team provides a much needed solution for the community by delivering a level of service that caregivers should expect when caring for their loved ones.
