A Problem Worth Solving
Right now there are more than 43 million American’s caring for a loved one an average of 24 hours or more per week. Majority of those getting care in-home are 65 or older. They often do not qualify for home care forcing them to have to go to the hospital, or have to schedule home-care services waiting, many times 2–7 days and paying $75-$150 per hour for that care. Waiting to receive care in their home is no longer adequate, forcing the alternative to go to the emergency room and add to the already high admission and readmission rates for low acuity care.
- Aging Population Growth: Roughly 10,000 Baby Boomers will turn 65 today, and about 10,000 more will cross that threshold every day for the next 19 years. This age group has many medical and health needs, and have started to put a strain on health systems.
- Overcrowding in Emergency Departments (ED): Over 50% of patients that go to the ED need low-acuity care and have to wait for over 2 hours. Carol can provide many of those services that are considered low-acuity care keeping it out of the hospital and in home eliminating the need to drive to the ED and helping to lower the current overcrowding problems seen throughout ED’s across the nation.
- Maintaining Independence: Maintaining your independence as you age is a top priority and Carol helps you do that. By using the Carol app or calling 888–68-CAROL, you can request a nurse to your home.
How does payment work?
We charge by time, not by service(s). We wanted to ensure you got all of the care you need and have transparent pricing. To accomplish this, you are charged by time instead of number of services. This way we can ensure multiple services while maintaining a lower cost structure for you.
