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.
