Testimonial - May 2019
“You ladies Rock!
The love and support and advice Regina, Geraldine and Josie gave my father David and my great Aunt Lilly was outstanding. I've been looking for you ladies since my father passed because some friends’ parents needed some assistants and all I could think about was you ladies, and how much love and quality care you guys gave.”
If you need cares at home, you found the right provider - these Ladies won’t let you down - I promise!

Soaring Independent Co-op incorporated in January 2019, changing the home care industry in Madison, WI and surrounding areas. We are a social impact business that operates in the best interests of the complementary communities of those we serve and our employees.
Soaring Independent Cooperative was founded by a group of women who are professional caregivers and family caregivers of aging relatives and children. The founders and leadership team took their shared 30 year professional and personal experience to build flourishing communities for people needing quality care, family caregivers, and direct care professionals.
Average Increase in caregiver pay
Pay higher than industry standard wages and build caregiver wealth. As worker-centered businesses, cooperatives prioritize improved working conditions including better training, higher wages, and job supports, resulting in increased worker satisfaction, decreased turn over, and ultimately higher quality, consistent care.
In an industry with a turnover rate of over 80%, home care co-ops average a caregiver turnover rate of only 30%.
women make up the vast majority (89%) of the home health & personal care workforce.
Because of the low pay and few to no benefits, many home care workers rely upon public health care coverage and other government benefits such as nutrition and housing assistance. This influences the unpaid care they can provide to their families.
Soaring Independent Cooperative was founded by a group of women who are both paid & family caregivers of adults and children. The founders and leadership team shares over 30 years experience as healthcare professionals as within direct care, training and management positions.
