Experienced Aging-in-Place Specialists

Founded in 2000 by experienced Aging-in-Place expert Bruce Matters, Coastal Caretakers is a franchised company that provides the services necessary to allow seniors and disabled individuals to remain safely, securely and comfortably in their own homes.

We do much more than provide house watching, property maintenance, home security services, and home repairs. We are aging-in-place and accessible home specialists who can provide comprehensive home evaluations, aging-in-place products and services, home modifications for seniors and those with mobility challenges, and so much more.

Booming Aging-in-Place Industry

With another Baby Boomer turning 65 years old every eight seconds, it’s not surprising that more services and products are needed to support this growing population in America. It has spawned an entirely new industry and concept called Aging-in-Place. Nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age, according to AARP. Even if they face health challenges and need some day-to-day assistance, their preference is to “age in place.”

The boom in this business has only just begun:

  • The private senior property management business is a virtually recession proof, multi-billion dollar industry.
  • The Aging-in-Place remodeling market is approximately $24 billion alone.
  • The technology products business for Aging-in-Place is an estimated $30 billion

Bruce Matters, Founder & CEO

With more than 30 years of experience in the property management and caretaking industry, Founder and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Matters turned his passion for helping others into a career when he founded Coastal Caretakers. For many years, he provided property management services to families and businesses in The Hamptons, at the tip of Long Island, New York. This coupled with his background in healthcare led to the creation of the Coastal Caretakers business model and franchise system, enabling seniors to age-in-place and the disabled to remain in the comfort and security of their own homes.
