Welcome to Tandem Careplanning! Our company was founded with the mission to elevate the in-home care experience for both care seekers and caregivers. We work with our clients to make it possible to age in place with a community of exceptional caregivers and a dedicated Care Team that is with you every step of the way.

Companionship is an important piece of the puzzle as we work to help our clients thrive. Even in big cities like LA, it is common to feel alone. Rewarding interactions with caregivers provide an excellent antidote to isolation.

Caregiving Works Better In Tandem

people_with_purposeTandem Careplanning was founded by Joshua and Lisa Greer – a husband and wife team who’ve gained significant acclaim for their entrepreneurship and civic contributions.

When the Greers found themselves in need of care for an aging parent they were mostly disappointed with the experience and the lack of options when they sought alternatives. The standard agency model lacked the flexibility and attention to detail that they sought, while referral-based services and online companies failed to provide adequate screening, caregiver selection, and follow-on support. The focus seemed to be on short-term needs and availability, rather than personalized, continuous care.

For Joshua and Lisa, the big revelation was understanding that all those involved need to feel valued and respected for the caregiving relationship to thrive.

Our team offers continuous support, guidance, and empowerment to everyone, at every step of their unique journey. Caregiving can and should be a rewarding career and a positive experience for individuals on the receiving end.
