We're good at what we do.

From the moment we first had an idea for founding our San Francisco Bay Area in-home care company, our top priority has been to make a better world for seniors and caregivers. How we go about that today is more sophisticated than it was nearly a decade ago when we launched Care Indeed; however, the value we place on compassion, authenticity, respect, and excellence in our work has never wavered.

Bay Area Home Care Services - Creating a Better World for Seniors and Caregivers

As caregivers and nurses ourselves, we believe that doing our best work can help make the world a better place. Because we understand how challenging it can be to entrust parents, grandparents, and others to someone else’s care, we approach the trust you place in us with humility and determination to do the best for you and your loved ones.

This is why our top priority is providing the highest-quality home care services for San Francisco and the Bay Area. No matter where you or your loved ones are in their journey from wanting a few hours of weekly companionship to requiring 24/7 home care assistance—we are here to support you.


Leadership Mission

We are a unified group of relationship-focused leaders. We empower the continuous improvement of Care Indeed's ability to create a better world for seniors and caregivers through trusted nursing and elder care services for the Bay Area.

How we treat each other matters more than anything. Kindness is a workplace policy at Care Indeed: the kindness to care for clients with respect and compassion; the kindness to create a company that treats caregivers like family while helping us all to grow professionally and personally. This is how Care Indeed makes a difference in today’s world—one client and one caregiver at a time.
