Keep Safe Care was started because when our founder who lives in Austin, TX hired a private duty agency in Washington, DC to take care of his mother, they ended up putting her in the hospital due to the poor care delivered. Private duty care in America is broken. Truancy, where caregivers do not show up is 25% and turnover at agencies is 82% (according to the latest findings of the 2018 Home Care Benchmarking Study). In addition, most caregivers do not make a living wage, getting paid just $9.25/hr on average (source: U.S. Dept of Labor). This is just wrong, and Keep Safe Care intends to change this.
