SAN FRANCISCO - August 05, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - ClearCare, the leader in software solutions for private duty home care agencies, today announced its partnership with Comfort Keepers®, an international in-home care franchise network with more than 700 locations globally. The partnership provides access to ClearCare’s innovative, home care technology platform across Comfort Keepers’ U.S. locations.
“Our partnership with ClearCare advances an important initiative within our strategic plan to invest in technology and innovation that helps propel our unique approach to interactive caregiving,” said Carl McManus, COO at Comfort Keepers.

Setting a new standard for technology in home care, ClearCare’s solution improves job satisfaction among caregivers and provides point-of-care transparency for families, while improving quality of care and lowering health care costs.
“Comfort Keepers is taking a progressive approach to modernizing the in-home care experience for its caregivers and customers,” said Geoffrey Nudd, CEO at ClearCare. “We are aligned in our mission of improving health care delivery for a rapidly aging population. We empower home care agencies to focus on their core business: caring for their clients and making a difference in the communities where they work.”
With roughly 10,000 Americans turning 65 daily1, the need for expert caregivers and innovative home care systems is more important than ever. Delivering the best digital health technology that allows caregivers to record and access crucial medical information is a vital component of solving impending baby boomer retirement and healthcare needs.
Comfort Keepers’ company-owned operations utilized ClearCare’s platform for six months, under a pilot program, before announcing the partnership. ClearCare was selected for its complementary technology features that easily integrate with the “Quality of Life” services program, which offers personal care and companion care services.

In addition to providing services that focus on health care and senior markets, Sodexo’s integrated offerings encompass more than 45 years of experience in reception, safety, maintenance and cleaning, foodservices, facilities and equipment management, and concierge services.
