Lifespan is 1 of 3 owners of the Together in Caring LLC. Like any business owner, they take part in the profit or loss of the business. Their employees and nonprofit operations are completely separate. They continue to serve the aging population as before with over 30 distinct programs that reach people from all socio-economic walks of life. Lifespan may make referrals to Together in Caring when private duty care seems most appropriate, but it will also make referrals to other care management organizations to provide consumers with a choice. When making a referral to Together in Caring, Lifespan will disclose that they have an ownership interest so that consumers may consider that fact when making a choice of services.
