CareNearYou Helps Families Find Care Options While Travelling

CareNearYou is a new Canadian app that helps families find care options while travelling.

Modern families travel and move, and need a one-stop destination to figure out care options, and find house cleaners, housekeepers and house sitters too, the company believes.

“When travelling the world with kids, as more and more families do, it was hard to believe that we could book a hotel at Expedia, get a ride with Uber and buy a coffee at Starbucks pretty much anywhere in the world—and yet had to rely on the results of a generic search engine to figure out who could help us watch over the most precious beings in our lives,” says founder Alexandra Greenhill

The site has options in more than 200 countries.

Beyond providing a robust solution for this globalisation trend, CareNearYou’s creators are also leveraging the mobile revolution by offering an experience that’s optimized for mobile use.

The next phase of development for CareNearYou will allow users to sign in to save/bookmark, share and be able recommend their favorite local services and as well as individual care providers. The plan is to also index daycares, agencies and elder care facilities.

Greenhill is also the cofounder of MyBestHelper, which last year was selected as the winner of the 2015 Laureate for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards for the North American region.
