Well Beyond Care plans to hire 100 nurses for new venture

A Health Tech Company Disrupting the Private Duty Industry Plans on Hiring 100 Nurses by the End of the Year

Austin, TX, August 18, 2017 –Well Beyond Care, an online company that is offering an alternative solution to the broken system of private duty care, is planning on adding at least 100 registered nurses to its staff by the end of the year.

Well Beyond Care, launched in late July for 2017, is already on a projected path to add at least one hundred (100) nurses who have home health, hospice and geriatric care management experience along with sales and management expertise to its payroll.  In addition to operating in five (5) states and twelve (12) major metropolitan areas within their first four weeks of operations, they plan to be in at least twenty-five (25) states by the end of the year.

“Well Beyond Care is all about helping families hire affordable, compatible caregivers for their aging parents,” states the company’s Chief Operations Officer, Lauren Tarrant, RN.  Ms. Tarrant also states, “families are under a lot of stress when they discover that they need to have someone care for mom and dad.  In most instances, the adult children live out of town, and knowing that there is a nurse in the neighborhood is a great relief. We just want to keep the stress level down, and nurses are the best way to do that. We have already started recruiting and interviewing nurses for these open positions. Salaries are upwards to over $80,000 per year.”

Jeffrey Fry, Well Beyond Care’s CEO and President adds, “the only way we can support our rapidly growing client base is to combine the high touch of nursing, with the high-tech of our online application.”  He goes on to state, “the only way we can make families feel comfortable with our new way of delivering services on a nationwide level is to have this professional capability as part of our service.”

The Company has been working on this new application for over three (3) years, and its initial acceptance has been overwhelming.  Management added that they projection for 2018 will be to accelerate the hiring of more nurses to meet the demand for their services.

Nursing Home Costs On The Rise Means More Jobs for In-Home Caregivers

Over the past eight years and despite the recession in 2008, the cost of nursing home care has increased by nearly 37%. According to Genworth’s 2016 Cost of Care Survey, the average cost of private nursing home care in the US is now $92,345 per year (or $235 per day). Just eight years ago that average was $67,527 per year. With such high costs, it is no wonder that more and more seniors and family members who are looking for care for their aging loved ones are now turning to in-home care as a better alternative.

This increased demand for in-home care means more job opportunities for private pay Caregivers, registered nurses, geriatric care managers and certified nurse assistants. According to the US Department of Labor, home care provider jobs are growing faster than in any other industry sector. This is good news for Caregivers and those who need care alike. With the demand so high and the increase use of the internet, more and more Caregivers are striking out on their own and setting their own rates, which are actually lower than that of going through a traditional private pay or private duty agency.  While rates for in-home Caregivers are increasing, because they are no longer burdened with the overheard of a private duty agency, they are actually much more affordable for elderly clients and their families. The difficulty is that until now, there were no good online tools for Caregivers to use to help them connect with those looking for care, and help them with the matching, interviewing, scheduling, and payment of care.

The Genworth Survey also found that 78% of seniors prefer in-home care to nursing home care. Leaving their home and moving to an unfamiliar place can be quite stressful for elderly patients, who would rather be able to stay in their home where they are comfortable. Many seniors also like to retain some independence, which is easier to do living in their own residence assisted by a Caregiver rather than in a nursing home.

In the past, one of the deciding factors for moving into a nursing home rather than opting to hire an in-home Caregiver has been the difficulty of seeking out private Caregivers. Today, online resources that match Caregivers and Careseekers make the process easy and streamlined. Sites like WellBeyondCare.com not only offer a sophisticated matching and search function, but also include cool features like Caregiver ratings and online care plans; and detailed profile views so that Careseekers can assess a Caregiver prior to interviewing, and can determine the most qualified and better suited to help them with their specific care needs. In addition, the company has a sophisticated matching capability to help further aide in getting the perfect Caregiver. Another feature only offered by Well Beyond Care is when a creates a profile on line, they get a nurse navigator who is in the care recipient’s town to help with local resources.

By disintermediating the costs associated by hiring a private duty company, Careseekers and their families are better able to keep their costs low. For the Caregiver, the ability to set your own pay rate lets them control their income. For in-home care providers, online tools are a great way to access the many available caregiving jobs in their area, and they offer those looking for care an easy way to manage their care either from home or remotely.
