Greater Control

We’ll provide a mobile app so you can coordinate care directly, including schedules, payments, paperwork, and even taxes.

Lower Costs

Our system reduces costs of traditional agencies so that you get a better price and your caregivers get a better wage for their hard work.

More Choice

Our platform matches caregivers with your unique needs and you can speak to them before deciding whether they are the right fit.

Higher Quality

Every caregiver on our platform has their background checked and we look for specific qualifications. You can look forward to seeing the same friendly faces every visit.

Family Directed makes it easy to find the best in-home care

1) Talk with an experienced care advisor and get answers

Tell us your needs, the schedule, and your budget. We will present profiles of local qualified caregivers that match your requirements.

2) Pick your own caregivers

Get introduced to your pre-screened caregivers. We help you meet, interview, and hire.

3) Use our mobile app to make managing care easier

Set a schedule and away you go. Use our Family Directed mobile app to manage schedules, time keeping, and make payments to your independent or direct hire caregiver.

Better for both families and caregivers


Families love it because they can choose their own caregiver from a shortlist that matches their needs. Our app makes it super simple for them to manage the care and check that everything is going to plan – even from out-of-state.

It’s peace of mind in home care you never thought was possible.

Find care now


Caregivers love it because they get a wider variety of new job opportunities, better scheduling, and stronger relationships with the customer.

Plus, caregivers take home more of the money they earn because we have eliminated agency fees coming out of their pay.

Family Directed vs Traditional Home Care

How do costs compare for you?

What’s great about Family Directed is you set the rate directly with the caregiver, but don’t worry each caregiver indicates their desired wage! You’ll only pay this rate + our support fee*.

*If House Hold Employer is designation, you’ll also be responsible for payroll taxes which range 10-14% depending on the state, but don’t worry our integrated payroll partner will take care of all that so you know just how much it will cost.
