We recruit, screen and place the top live-in caregivers in the country, with private families. We set the family up with a turnkey payroll solution to pay the live-in, and we guarantee each placement for an entire year. Ideal for Dementia, stroke, Parkinsons, or any full time custodial care. There is no need to relocate to a nursing home, we bring the care to you. Grandma Joan has been awarded two national senior care awards (2014 and 2017), and is BBB Accredited with an A+ Rating.

Since 2010, Grandma Joan's consumer based home-care model has been providing American families with a more affordable solution to choose from than the business directed models of nursing homes and home care agencies.

Grandma Joan's Story

We started out as a state licensed home care agency in 2010. Our Grandma Joan's home-care model was born from an exit survey with one of our original home care agency clients. He was distressed about the need to continue our professional live-in services for his mom. She was living alone and had Alzheimer's; however, he was no longer able to afford our high agency rates. It was from this client’s need that Grandma Joans™ was born. We helped him find, screen, and contract with a qualified independent live-in,  all for a onetime set up fee. He paid the independent provider directly and on the books, cutting out our agency overhead.  Grandma Joan's service model was an overnight success, and within a year of its launch we went nationwide.
