As we age, unfortunately we lose the ability to do certain daily tasks on our own. Finding a qualified caregiver however can be stressful, time-consuming and expensive. So we want to help.
At Senior Care Connect we give families easy access to qualified caregivers at affordable prices.
We've created an online marketplace that combines the best of two worlds. We offer the affordability of services as with your typical classified-listing website, BUT with the sense of security you get from selecting pre-screened/qualified caregivers (as you would with a traditional home care company).
As a social worker in hospital, Senior Care Connect’s founder, Kristal Lewis, often encountered families distraught over trying to find care for their aging loved ones. It became clear to Kristal that, despite current solutions, finding care for an aging loved one was a stressful, time-consuming and expensive process.
Kristal thought to herself there has to be a better way to help these families, and thus Senior Care Connect was born.
As Founder/CEO of Senior Care Connect, Kristal is a registered Social Worker (RSW) who holds both a Bachelor and Master’s Degree in Social Work (BSW, MSW), with over 10 years of experience in the field.
Her experience includes:
Health care system navigation
Case management/ Social work
Senior care planning
Hospital discharge planning
Community crisis intervention
Community outreach and education
Amongst other areas
With an expertise in working with seniors and health care, Kristal is well aware of the numerous issues impacting this population and holds a wealth of knowledge regarding our health care system and senior care planning. Kristal is passionate about educating the community and acting as a support to help seniors/families get the care they need, in order to ensure they maintain the highest quality of life as they age.
