What is a Home Care Co-op?

There are many types of caregiver cooperatives that provide home care. Home Care refers to non-medical services such as cleaning, bathing, companionship, cooking, and other duties.

A home care co-op is generally a home care agency. It differs from other agencies in that the ownership of the agency consists of the caregivers.

Caregivers sit on the board of directors and make company policy. As caregivers, they implement those policies.

This provides clients with a direct line of communication with the owners of the agency.

Caregivers benefit by having control over their workplace that includes better wages and working conditions (including the ability to provide the services that their clients want).  Clients benefit by having someone with true ownership of their job providing care.


Capital Homecare Cooperative serves Thurston County in the State of Washington. The caregivers own the agency and direct its policies. Our aim is to provide a high quality of care to our clients while also creating a great organization for our caregivers.

Cooperatives operate on the basis of “one member-one vote”, so each caregiver who joins the co-op, has an equal voice. They meet to elect a board from amongst themselves. Since the board, which sets policy, consists of caregivers, our clients have direct access to the policy makers.
