Double-booking caregivers. Calling caregivers on Friday afternoon to confirm weekend shifts. Worrying about whether you are in compliance with all of your state and federal regulations like overtime. Hours upon hours running your billing and payroll. Paper time sheets.

Do any of these sound familiar?

If so, it’s time to make sure you are using home care software, or using the right software, for your agency.

Shopping around for software can be overwhelming. Start by thinking about your greatest challenges and make sure your software solves for them. What are the most important features to you? Ask for a demo so you can see them in action and determine if they meet your needs. Also, think about the future. Will your software scale with you as you grow?

Whether you are just starting out in the home care business or you are an established agency, HomeTrak simplifies and automates your operations so you can focus on your clients, not a pile of paperwork. For over 15 years, we have provided home care software solutions that help you get organized and efficient, and save you money in the process.

HomeTrak’s cloud-based (translation: no hardware required) software solution helps you manage all aspects of your agency – scheduling, billing, payroll, hiring, clients, caregivers…then easily report on it all.

Here are just a few of HomeTrak’s unique features to consider when comparing software.

Integrated Texting Features – HomeTrak’s built-in texting features can automate your scheduling by texting caregivers about open shifts. When a caregiver accepts, your schedule is automatically updated. Send automated reminders for upcoming shifts and appointments, instead of making time-consuming phone calls.

Mobile-Enabled – In addition to the traditional desktop application, HomeTrak offers a mobile web site so you can manage your agency on your smartphone or tablet. Office staff can manage schedules, caregivers can clock in and out with our GPS Check-In feature, and more.

Pricing – If you’re a fast-growing startup, or an agency that already has its stake in the ground, our pricing will flex to fit your business. All packages include unlimited users, cloud data hosting, live customer support, and training webinars. We believe in our product so much, we don’t require long-term contracts. We want to earn your business each and every month.

President, Owner at HomeTrak Software
Hi. My name is Rick Morey and I am the president and one of the owners of HomeTrak.

In the 1990s, I owned and operated a $6 million a year home care agency in California and Arizona. I am a founding member of the Home Care Association of America and was a board member for nine years. When my partners and I started HomeTrak in 2001, we were the first home care software company specializing in private duty.

With the aging population and their increasing interest in being cared for in their homes, the home care industry is thriving. If you’re reading this, you’re probably deciding whether you’d like to be a part of this dynamic and growing business.

There are a lot of considerations as you think about whether this is the right business for you. It can be a very satisfying and profitable industry, but it takes a lot of work and is very competitive. On top of sales, marketing, technology, and the many other requirements for starting any business, the personal nature of the home care industry has its own demands. You will need to make sure you and your staff have hearts for serving seniors and their families, day in and day out. The dedication of your caregivers will be key to your success as you start your home care agency.

Based on first-hand experience, I’d be happy to help you navigate through these considerations with some honest insight and conversation. I also have some policy and procedure materials and notes from past home care speeches that I can share with you.

If you’d like to kick around your plans and ideas for how to start a home care business, give me a call. I’d love to chat with you.


Rick Morey

President of HomeTrak and
one of your expert companions in home care
