Our story begins, not surprisingly, at home. As the primary caregiver for her aging mother and father, our founder Andrea Cohen saw firsthand the difference that comfort, safety, and familiarity of home can make for older adults. She drew inspiration from personal experience and committed herself professionally to reimagine aging and make caring for seniors at home easier. Founded in 1998, HouseWorks has worked ever since to change the way private in-home care is delivered.
