Helping to solve local caregiver shortages with private-hire, Traveling Nurse Aides who will relocate too, and move-in with your ADL or memory-care clients.

How We Partner with Others to Serve Families

Grandma Joan consults with your client about their specific needs, then recruits and screens professional private-hire live-in candidates for them to consider for hire. The family hires their favorite as a household employee.

HomePay takes care of the family’s employer obligations without work or worry to the family.

You can do the care assessment, monitor, and oversee the care plan for the family, if you choose too. 

The Care-Recipient gets to STAY HOME with a fully screened, trained, and experienced nurses aide for premium one-on-one help and companionship, as needed 24/7.

Partner With Us

Be Their Local Eyes and Ears

There is nothing like having a trusted set of eyes and ears on the ground local to the patient. Someone trained in geriatric care and experienced in navigating the local landscape of senior resources and options.

Discuss Difficult Topics

Few children ever thought that they would need to parent their parents one day. This is foreign territory for them. Use your skills at aiding families with difficult conversations to gain cooperation between those concerned

Assess and Monitor

You are specially trained to assess, plan, coordinate, and monitor services for seniors. You can do regular home visits, check up on how the live-in is doing with the client's care and flag them if their parent's needs change.

Handle Emergencies

"What happens if...?" Is a question that you know the answers too, and can help them with trusted local resources. They never have to worry about not being there to manage an emergency, when they have you to work with.


How does the referral process work with Grandma Joan?
When we have a client interested in exploring GCM services in tandem with using our private hire service, then we will contact a certified/licensed GCM local to the care recipient. If that GCM provides the required services then we provide our client with their contact information. If they contract with you, you are just performing your normal services except that we are providing them with the live-in candidates to consider for hire, instead of you.

When you have a client interested in our live-in care consulting and recruiting service, then you should call us to make sure that we can help with their specific needs. You can meet and interview any final candidate of ours before they meet the family to ensure that you are satisfied with them. You work for the client’s best interest, not ours.

What GCM services are needed?
It depends on the clients needs. Some clients may want you involved from the start for a professional care assessmemnt , assistance interviewing screened candidates, and others may only want monitoring / emergency services.

How is the live-in paid?
We refer our clients to HomePay, the nation’s household employer experts since 1992. Homepay takes care of the family’s employer obligations without work or worry to the family. The family pays HomePay, and HomePay pays the live-in. All rates quoted to families from us include all of their payroll taxes and HomePay’s fees. The family may also choose to pay the live-in by their own means. There is no requirement for them to use HomePay.
