About Us

Caregiving is serious business so we set out to develop a better way to care.

As a home care agency owner, you came into this industry to ensure that older adults and their families receive the very best in care. When Madhuri and I created CareAcademy, we saw that there was a lot missing in caregiver education. At CareAcademy, we sought to fill the void with fresh, relevant classes to engage learners, a dynamic platform that personalizes learning, and the extra set of hands home care agencies need to increase productivity.

So, we started CareAcademy in 2016 with a simple idea: to empower caregivers to learn how to deliver the best care to older adults with the support, guidance, and compassion needed to improve their quality of life. We would then make it easy for caregivers to “upskill” and continue their education over time so they could better serve clients as needs changed and advance their careers The result is a better caregiver, a better home care agency and a better way to care.

Today CareAcademy provides home care agencies with a best in class online education platform that delivers engaging video-based classes and real world scenarios that walk through aspects of the caregiver experience. Best of all, we provide the extra set of hands to help manage caregiver training so you can acquire and retain the talent you need to grow your business.

Our mission is to help agencies and caregivers provide excellent care. We are proud to work with thousands of agencies, franchisors and caregivers nationwide to accomplish this goal everyday.

We’ve removed all barriers and now train thousands of caregivers each month.
