About

 

LaborForCare.com is a website where caregivers can identify, search and book services for their caregiving needs.

 

According to AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving there are 43.5 million people who have provided unpaid care to an adult or a child in the last 12 months.

Purpose

LaborForCare.com is designed for the caregiver who is busy managing their life and the life of the person they’re caring for. Life is already hectic, imagine how hectic it can be if you add an additional life to manage. LaborForCare.com is designed to help caregivers by connecting them to service providers.

Caregivers use the website to lighten their workload while service providers use the website to increase their business revenue by using the site to book clients.

Think to yourself for a second.

Imagine if your life changed dramatically and you became one of those 43.5 million caregivers. Rather than enjoying the small down time you currently have, you would spend that time bathing your ill parent, managing their finances, and taking care of their house. LaborForCare.com would give you access to professionals that can reduce your workload.

Imagine if a percentage of those 43.5 million caregivers were looking to pay you for your services. LaborForCare.com would give you the visibility and accessibility necessary to help a vulnerable family and to increase your clientele.

Goals

LaborForCare.com is designed to:

  • Connect caregivers to service providers that will ease the burden of caregiving.

  • Provide emotional and practical support for caregivers.

  • Support small businesses and entrepreneurs by giving them a platform to book clients.

 

Many of us become caregivers unexpectedly and without much of a choice. When that happens our personal workload increases tremendously. We begin to manage another person's finances, their health, their house, we take on legal responsibilities and more.

LaborForCare.com decreases the caregiver’s workload while increasing the visibility of the service provider.

Competitive Landscape

Similar products such as Care.com, Homehero.com, and Carelinx.com connect families to caregivers. LaborForCare.com differentiates itself among the competition because it connects caregivers to service providers to ease the caregiving workload. For example, a caregiver may need to schedule service providers to help maintain the house. He/she could use LaborForCare.com to book a lawn care company, and house cleaning services. He/she may also want to book a cosmetologist to come in and administer hair and nail services for their loved one.

Conclusion

Research shows that caregivers are typically family members, but LaborForCare.com can also be used by paid caregivers on the family’s behalf.

Use LaborForCare.com to identify, search and book services for your caregiving needs. It’s simple and easy to use.
