Let us Help You Find the Help You Seek on HelpingYouCare®
Quick Start/Guide Me

More than 65 million Americans and 36.5 million U.S. households are now caring for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones, and providing an average of 20 hours of care per week without pay.(1) These numbers are growing rapidly, as our population ages.(2) Nearly 50% of people aged 85 and over suffer from Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia.(3) Caregivers need help, and our health care system is strained.

HelpingYouCare® is dedicated to helping you care for your aging parents & senior loved ones and for yourself. Our purpose and our mission is to provide you the constantly updated, serious and helpful news, information, education, practical tools, resources & support you need as a caregiver; to provide useful health and wellness information that can help you and your senior loved ones stay healthy and active; and to contribute your suggestions as a caregiver, along with those of experts, toward the improvement of our health and long-term care systems. We are a company founded by a caregiver to help caregivers, seniors, and our communities.
