At Reciprocare, we are on a mission to transform caregiver recruitment and hiring! It can take a long time for home care agencies and other providers to find and hire the right caregivers at the right time to match the specific needs of clients. Given the escalating demand for eldercare as the Baby Boomer generation ages, finding the right caregiver fast is crucial.
ReciproCare expands both the capacity of the long-term care industry to serve elderly & disabled individuals and access to employment for its caregiver workforce. We will increase the proportion of caregivers who are fully employed so that home care agencies and other long-term care employers have more the workforce that they need to grow their businesses.
Dr. Charlene Brown, a Harvard MD, knows first-hand the importance of in-home care in preventing adverse outcomes for seniors and disabled persons.
Dr. Brown has been around caregivers all her life. Her mother worked as a geriatric nurse, while other family members and family friends worked as nurses, CNAs and companions. Inspired by her family’s commitment to caring, Dr. Brown ultimately chose to pursue medicine. As a public health expert, she recognized the mismatch between the rising care needs of aging Americans and the underemployment of the paid caregivers in her family. Solving this inefficiency became her life’s work as she quit her job at USAID to found Reciprocare.
Through Reciprocare, Dr. Brown strives to build bridges between home care agencies and caregivers to support the growth of the long-term care industry.
