Now you’ve got a choice. You can have the care YOU want, when you want it.

Our revolutionary approach has some key differences to traditional in-home care solutions that at the end of the day ensures it is all about the person and how they want to live their life.


MEMBERSHIP NOT HOURS – Five.Good.Friends. is a membership model, meaning people pay a weekly or yearly membership fee (membership starts at $19/week) and then receive help at significantly cheaper rates than current providers, just $35/hour. There are no penalty rates and no minimum hours. The focus isn’t on the how many hours you need, but what type of help you want and when. Its all about you.


TECHNOLOGY TO KEEP EVERYONE IN TOUCH, INFORMED AND IN CONTROL –The delivery of help is scheduled and monitored through the ‘Five Good Friends App’ providing Members, and their family (if desired) the peace of mind of knowing who is in the home, when, what help has been provided and the contact details of your Helpers.


A TAILORED HELP PLAN – A skilled and caring Community Manager meets with prospective members (and their families if desired) to understand their needs and how they want to live. A personal help plan is then designed that matches you to the best vetted and verified local Helpers.


YOUR HELPERS EARN MORE –The combination of a Membership model and the efficiency of the technology eliminates overhead, reduces the cost of delivering help and brings transparency to the service. At the same time Five.Good.Friends. vets and verifies the best local helpers and pays them more to provide their services.


ONE TRUSTED RELATIONSHIP TO GROW WITH NEEDS OVER TIME – With Five.Good.Friends. Members and their families have one trusted relationship to manage their help needs as they change over time.


NO MORE INFLEXIBILITY – no more confusion, no more fitting your lives around the help provider. As a Five.Good.Friends. Member, this is your world.
