We recruit, and screen the top live-in caregivers in the country for private families. We can help set the family up with a turnkey payroll solution to pay the live-in, following all state and federal labor laws. We only charge a one-time recruiter fee for our entire service. We have no other fees.


Since 2010, we have been helping seniors find help so that they can stay in their homes longer, even when they may need assistance throughout the day and overnight. From simple memory care and reminders, all the way to bed-bound and assistance with hospice.


For many families we are the bridge used to cross the gap between hourly home-care visits (that aren’t providing enough care) and the care recipient relocating to a care facility.

"If the care recipient doesn’t want to relocate to an assisted living or care facility, then we may be able to help bridge the gap until they are ready."

Grandma Joan has been recruiting and screening premium level live-in caregivers on the private-hire market since 2010. We do nothing else. Our job is to find and screen live-ins who meet your family’s needs. We can help set you up with a FLSA compliant domestic payroll service to pay them following all state and federal laws. You can even get workers comp insurance for 100% liability protection. True 24/7 peace of mind.

Your Own Private Full-Time Caregiver

Live-ins are there to help as needed all day, then sleep over each night for safety

The wonderful thing about live-in care is that you can get a premium level caregiver for about 1/2 of the rate that an agency will charge for 24 hr home-care. Not only that, but they will sleep over unpaid each night and be on-call just in case they are needed (except in CA). The added bonus with live-in care is that you get one person instead of an agency sending multiple caregivers to cover the same amount of time. This allows for the care recipient and the care provider to bond like family.
