About us

It can be overwhelming digging through a sea of agencies to find care you can trust. Homecare Hub is an interactive directory of the highest quality homecare agencies. This is critical in an industry where some cities have hundreds of homecare agencies, where pricing lacks transparency, and where the quality of homecare varies tremendously.

We provide a selection of hand picked high quality agencies with different price ranges. Our agencies have pledged to a commitment to putting patients first. Much like the search engines of the airline industry, homecare hub searches through these agencies to provide the most appropriate care for you. We provide transparent pricing to you and a seamless experience for you to obtain your care. We are reorganizing the industry with our standardized categories tallow customers to compare services between agencies appropriately.

Rest easy and have more time for yourself and your loved ones. If we aren't in your city but are interested in having us come to your city, please let us know.

We are also building new models of care to bring down the cost of care and combat senior isolation. Stay tuned to see our breakthrough innovations in the coming year.


Our Story

Vipan had treated thousands of seniors, and while working within the walls of various North American hospitals he had witnessed a common theme - patients struggling to afford and find homecare. This led to frustration for families, avoidable admissions for patients, and long unnecessary length of stays for hospitals which was costing the healthcare system an enormous amount of money.

Meanwhile, Brian and Jay were operating a homecare agency. They witnessed the challenges of the homecare industry as they would see families and patients struggle to afford and find quality homecare. And down the road, Rahim helped create Suvien, a non-profit App that allowed dementia patients preserve and relive their memories. Through this experience, he developed a passion for caring for seniors and learned about the challenges they faced in their attempts to stay at home.

In 2015 the journey began as they came together to solve these problems and reimagine homecare - the result was a new way to find quality homecare and new models of care to connect patients and make homecare affordable to patients.
