The mission of Red Boat Care

The goal of Red Boat Care is to create truly caregiver-centered software products. Our purpose is to dramatically improve the care management of people living at home (those who are “Aging in Place”, disabled, chronically ill, etc.). We recognize that to do that we need to provide primary caregivers (and their team members) the software to make their work easier.
