First ever search site for care options in over 200 countries worldwide

 
Feb. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- “This is my personal dream come true”, says Alexandra T. Greenhill, an award-winning entrepreneur mom of three, talking about newly launched CareNearYou, the first ever site that aggregates search for options for care in over 200 countries worldwide. She adds:

“When travelling the world with kids, as more and more families do, it was hard to believe that we could book a hotel at Expedia, get a ride with Uber and buy a coffee at Starbucks pretty much anywhere in the world, and yet, had to rely on the results of a generic search engine to figure out who could help us watch over the most precious beings in our lives!”

The audience for this mobile site are the millions of families who travel, relocate or care for relatives far away from home, a rapidly growing group that demands a glo-cal (global-local) approach, with “go to” trusted brands offering insights into locally created solutions. The expectations of modern users are to be able to access quick and elegant tools that are available anywhere in the world and CareNearYou is one such offering.

Global tourism alone has grown at a pace of 4% per year since 2011 (Source: World Travel Monitor 2014, IPK International) and the new trend is that since 2014 there has been a sharp increase in bookings by smartphone by travellers around the globe as well as use of social media channels such as review portals, blogs and forums for planning trips (Source: ITB World travel trends report 2014/2015).

Beyond providing a robust solution for this globalisation trend, CareNearYou’s creators are also leveraging the mobile revolution, by offering an experience that’s optimized for mobile use. Smartphones and tablets have already changed the way we access and interact with the world, and this happened at the same time as how the ease and cost of travel has transformed where we live and how often we can go on trips.

How does CareNearYou work? Whether you need a sitter in Christchurch, New Zealand, a nanny in Belgium or elder care in Delhi, India, families can now do a quick search on a modern and well designed site and see available options at the same destination - www.carenearyou.com. The process that traditionally takes hours is now simplified and modernised, and the site is available to use for free anywhere in the world.  The site also features suggested resources for planning a trip or a move with a family.

The next phase of development for CareNearYou will allow users to sign in to save/bookmark, share and be able recommend their favorite local services and as well as individual care providers. The plan is to also index daycares, agencies and elder care facilities.

“When families need help, they want to know all their options. Traditionally that means having to check on separate local sitesand that is simply too time consuming and ineffective. Every hour counts when you are travelling, and even more so, when the care you need is because a loved one is not well.” says Dr. Greenhill, the originator of CareNearYou.

How the service differs from Yelp or the Yellow pages is that busy families can choose to bypass the search and instead post a job that makes care providers come to them instead, making the whole experience even more streamlined.
