The Care Exchange

The Care Exchange is a method by which caregivers can exchange hours with members of a group or the exchange at large. It is not a bartering system as bartering involves monetary exchange in a transaction. In The Care Exchange, members are able to bank time and then use time for services they need. The services may not be related to care giving. An accountant may offer an hour of their time and then bank an hour. The accountant then may need someone to drive a family member to an appointment and could use that hour for that service. The hour would be moved to the driver's bank. However, the accountant may also need some handyman work or a hair stylist. The opportunities are endless. The big take away is to know that your time is banked and can be used for any service offered by anyone in the exchange at any time. Coming soon!
