Behind The Vision
Join the Journey: Learn more about the inspiring founder of Caregiving From Home, Cara Pitts.
Hey there! I'm Cara, a devoted caregiver with a heart full of love for my amazing grandmother, Mary Lee, and a passion for helping families navigate the complex world of caregiving. When I was 8, my grandma moved in with my mom, Renee, and me in Texas. My mother Renee, a do-it-all nurse, carried the weight of the world without asking for help.
About 15 years ago, my grandma had a stroke and had to move into a nursing home. We didn't learn about her insurance benefits covering paid caregiving until years later. Had we known earlier, she might have never needed to leave home and we could've kept her from going into a nursing home! Since 2018, I've been helping families with caregiving, and now I've put all my knowledge into a course to help families everywhere.
Inspired by my husband Marcus's plant-based journey in 2017, we founded Southern Roots Vegan Bakery, which has grown into a national brand. With my grandma as our chief taste tester, we have high visions to partner with senior care communities and create a meal program for seniors. This experience ignited my desire to create Caregiving From Home, a company providing valuable resources on senior care and caregiving. I also developed The Caregiver's Blueprint, a digital course teaching families how to become paid caregivers for their loved ones.
With my help through the years, families have earned over six figures in caregiving paychecks and home renovations. Now, I'm on a mission to help others do the same. Senior care is my true passion, and I'm here to support you on your caregiving journey!
