About Us

Careten is a unique Senior Care Online platform which is redefining the landscape of how seniors and their families find Senior care. Careten.com helps both families and highly qualified care providers (caregivers) to connect online. Families can find highly qualified vetted Caregivers who are trained and experienced to provide Personal Care, Alzheimers and Dementia Care, Respite Care, Companion Care just to name a few. Families choose, interview, negotiate the pay rates, hire the caregivers and create a care plan, based on their budget and needs which could be from a few hours a day to 24/7 Care.

In the past families had the option of hiring caregivers privately or work with an agency. Careten combines the affordability of private care with the safety and convenience of the Home Care agency model. We use technology to connect people seeking and providing care thereafter families negotiate and pay the caregiver directly, thus saving families upto 30% of the Home Care cost versus working with a traditional Home Care agency. This also entitles Caregivers earning a much higher wages thus increasing their productivity and level of care.

All Caregivers go through Careten’s in depth vetting process which includes interviews, reference and background checks. All Caregivers are covered by our liability insurance. We offer families 24/7 access to our online system to help find a back-up, emergency fill-ins, and replacement caregivers. Careten also offers all necessary tools from scheduling and time tracking, care coordination and payroll processing either directly or through one of our partners.

Careten provides ongoing support through our team of Expert Care Advisors who are available to speak with you day or night. There are No Minimums, No Contracts and signup is absolutely free. So start your Care Search with us today.

Our Story

In 2009, my Dad had a Brain Stroke, he lost most of his memory and became totally dependent on my Mom. Our family faced the huge challenges to find a right caregiver for him. While researching Home Care for my dad, I found families are poised with similar challenges globally. Finding the right Caregiver privately was not just hard but also not safe as one does not know anything about the person coming into your house. With my personal experience, I realized finding the right caregiver is so important for families but the avenues were limited. I got involved with the Home Care industry in 2012. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of families by providing high quality Home Care to Seniors with dignity and respect.

During just the last few years the cost of Home Care has risen drastically at the same time professionals providing care were not seeing increase in their wages. Low wages and over burdened caregivers were compromising the care of the Seniors.

So we created Careten. Careten by using technology will revamp and revolutionize how families find Senior Care but also make the process more efficient and cost effective. At Careten we will EMPOWER and give control to the families to provide high quality care to their loved ones.
