Why we built Carefluent
A trusted resource for those who need care
Carefluent was founded to fill a need for delivering non-medical care that matches careseekers and caregivers based on things they have in common. Our highest priority is to match both the Careseeker and our skilled Care Companions social, cultural, and linguistic preferences.
Careseekers access Carefluent's in-home services through our custom caregiving programs built for leading-edge employers and progressive health plans.
Our caregivers are as diverse as you are
Cultural compatibility and AI technology
Finding a caregiver who is a good fit culturally, socially, and even speaks the same language feels impossible. That’s because traditional home health agencies and online marketplaces and platforms overlook the importance of these critical factors. At Carefluent, we understand that building a caregiving relationship requires trust. Cultural compatibility creates relatability, which promotes empathy, enhances trust, and fosters stronger connections. That’s what makes us the leading edge of home health.
We leverage technology to create stronger connections, ensuring a far superior caregiving relationship.

It’s Personal: Carefluent Beginnings and a Vision for Change
Changing in-home care for the better
Daphney Vick, Founder and CEO, was inspired to create Carefluent when her own father was sick and needed assistance from in-home caregivers. After scouring the internet, speaking with friends and neighbors in an urgent attempt to find quality in-home care for him, she realized that none of the agencies or caregivers asked about his values, traditions, language needs or even the types of cuisine he enjoys. The focus was solely on services and price. Stricken by the lack of consideration for culturally compatibility, relationship-building, and trust, Daphney created Carefluent: highly personalized, culturally-responsive care that’s just that – personal.
