Evolving Care of New Jersey

Stephanie McCarter Flynn, founder of Evolving Care (est. 2015), recognized the importance of excellent at-home care from a young age. Her sister, Eleanor, is multiply impaired and for her parents, finding reliable, skilled and professional caregivers was not an easy task.Establishing Evolving Care was a natural outcome of Stephanie’s work and life experience, which includes a solid foundation of assessing seniors and placing caregivers based on their needs. Prior to that she worked in the fashion industry for a large New York corporation and with a privately owned New Jersey business. Stephanie has a strong liberal arts education from Lafayette College.

She is an entrepreneur driven to develop, direct and lead her at-home care agency, ACHC accredited as of 2019. Obtaining Accreditation was not a small task for boutique agencies like hers. She persevered and worked diligently with her staff and consultants to ensure her agency was compliant and could compete with large home health care corporations.

Stephanie appreciates the role of seniors in our communities and wants to give back. On November 7th 2021, Stephanie ran the 50th Anniversary of the TCS New York City Marathon. She ran as part of the Alzheimer’s Association, Charity Team. Stephanie chose the Alzheimer’s Association because the majority of her clients suffer from the disease. Hopefully one day there will be a cure for Alzheimer’s. If you would like to learn more, please visit https://act.alz.org
