Who We Are


Caring Connection was born at a crossroads. Darius Stir has worked with placement agencies around Northern California for years, and saw the need for a better service. Clayton Markin had recently lost a grandmother to Parkinson's disease and was frustrated with how hard it was to find a quality memory care provider.


Together they started Caring Connection, a company that would use modern technology to find independent and assisted living facilities for families all over northern California.
