The Clutch Story

Colt Stander started Clutch after seeing his mom support four family members over a five year period. While she helped three generations through a diverse set of health challenges, she amazingly maintained her full time job and two family businesses.

Colt set out to find support for the chaos caused by day-to-day chores and not knowing what to do. After much searching, Colt learned that the gold standard, Geriatric Care Management, was especially expensive at up to $200 an hour! Seeing this, he knew he needed to find a way to make this type of support more affordable for the rest of us.

Susan created Care Better after not finding the support she needed when her mother was ill with dementia. With over twenty years of startup, corporate and nonprofit management and sales experience, bringing services to all, regardless of income, Care Better was born. Her mission is to connect the 16 million people who care for loved ones with Alzheimer's and Dementia to each other and the Experts they need to do a good job caring for someone they love.

Susan is an author, mother of three daughters, reader, lover of nature and a strong cup of black tea. She lives the soul belief in "creating the thing you wish existed" and the MIRACLE of pushing a button on our phones, to find the support we need.
