In an effort to celebrate unpaid caregivers, this rewards platform offers redeemable incentives. The interactive platform enables users to record tasks via a mobile app. Founded by Chiara Bell, Careticker acknowledges the often unseen volunteers whose work would account for billions of dollars in a home or hospital.

The rewards platform demonstrates the value of caregiver activities while also allowing them to share in the savings health insurance companies have due to their work. Currently in beta, Careticker has two healthcare insurance firms involved thus far.

Users can record activities and tag them in categories such as grooming, shopping and medication. Each task is associated with an item like a Wal-Mart gift card. The platform also increases engagement between caregivers who can offer support to one another while also validating their help.
