The mission of myCareBase is to help seniors age in place for as long as possible, by enabling them to access the senior care services they need to remain living at home and supporting their caregivers in delivering the best care possible.
Founder and CEO
Stephanie is the founder of myCareBase and has been an eldercare planner and facilitator for the last 12 years in her first business. Prior to starting that business, Stephanie practiced law in Vancouver, BC. In 2007, she left the practice of law to start her first venture to help seniors and their families facilitate solutions and navigate through the complex decisions that arise when the senior needs help to maintain his or her quality of life. Stephanie’s senior care planning and care management experience with her clients has encompassed a wide range of situations, addressing care needs from simple to the most complex health conditions. She has seen countless families struggle to find the right resources at an affordable cost, in a fragmented and often confusing private and public healthcare system. It is those firsthand experiences that created the impetus for myCareBase.
With myCareBase, we are building a solution which will help empower family caregivers to find caregivers online, manage and oversee the best possible care for their family members at a cost that fits within their budget. We want to help families optimize the quality of life for their loved ones.

Observing and assisting several members of his own family as they've taken on the challenging and life-changing role of family caregiver has provided Steve with deep motivation for bringing myCareBase to the market.
"Too often, people in the system fail to recognize that it's me...the family caregiver...who is the one that needs the help...the one putting all of their time and energy into ensuring that my parent, spouse or child stays healthy and comfortable. When I reach the breaking point and I feel that I'm about to have a meltdown, that's when I know I need to start reaching out for help."
