Caring.com: An Online Resource For Caregivers

Caring.com is an online resource dedicated to the 34 million people taking care of aging parents, and the difficult choices they face. It provides a wide range of information and support, from general health and home care tips to legal matters and local medical directories. The original content for the site is created by people who have served as caregivers themselves in some capacity.

CEO Andy Cohen created the site after an experience taking care of his own mother, who suffered from lung cancer. He had no prior experience in the realm of caregiving- and when researching the subject online, he noticed plenty of resources for brides and new mothers, but very little catering to those assisting aging parents.
