The global population is aging, and the need for home care is growing each year. Unfortunately, at a time when care is needed more than ever, the home care industry is experiencing a crisis – a shortage of care workers.

At Caribou, we are on a mission to solve the caregiver crisis. Addressing this shortage will ripple positively across society: more fulfilling careers in healthcare, greater capacity to care for those in need, reduced stress on affected families, improved quality of life, and reduced burden on the hospital system. The caregiver shortage affects everyone, and together with our customers and partners, we will help solve it.

With Caribou's technology, care organizations can create a staff rewards program that motivates, attracts, and retains staff like never before. As a result, our customers grow their staff by more than 25% in the first year and reduce staff turnover by enabling a culture of recognition. We help solve the industry's two biggest problems: recruitment and retention.

It is essential for caregivers to feel valued, heard, and financially secure. With Caribou, care organizations can better understand their employees’ needs, recognize their efforts, and compensate them with financial rewards. Organizations using Caribou become the employer that caregivers strive to work for in their community. This empowered workforce delivers superior quality care to those who need it.

Caribou is in the midst of an exciting chapter of growth as we work with leading home care organizations in Canada and the United States to introduce the future of recognition to the industry. The journey is just beginning. Join us as we transform the way we care for care workers.
