Rescue is a reliable and ultra-responsive platform providing care services connecting care seekers and providers.
Rescue is the dependable and ultra-responsive go-to platform providing the professional care giving service sought by primary and often sole caregivers for their loved ones struggling with mid to late stage dementia in a moment’s notice. The platform can also provide on-demand help for institutions who may need a skilled PSW to fill in at the last minute.

The full story:
We were inspired by the dedication of the primary and sole caregivers of those struggling with dementia. We realized there is a distinct need for last-minute, on-demand care services on those days when everything seems to be on fire and the primary caregiver can’t be everywhere at once. We studied the market and realized that while agencies are getting more innovative with providing platforms which make it easier to book appointments with personal support workers (PSW) in advance, there is no service which provides ultra-responsive, on-demand, high quality service as we have proposed. Recognizing that dementia requires highly trained PSW, particularly those whom the caregiver can place the utmost trust in, we will partner with reputable agencies such as Saint Elizabeth, and provide a rating system to augment the ‘human’ side of this technology.
