Providing Support to Seniors & their Families

Nicole Malia Coglietta, CEO & Co-Founder of Care Sift, a senior care finder service, started the Hawaii-based company in November 2015. Ms. Coglietta started this business because of her experience working as a discharge planner in various local hospitals and watching families struggle to find affordable, quality senior care at a time in their lives when they were at their most stressed and time-pressed.

Two and a half years ago, when she found herself driving around Kaneohe in the middle of the night, going door to door frantically looking for a care home for her grandfather who was being discharged from the hospital the following day, she decided to start a company to provide support to seniors and their families looking for senior care. “The process was a nightmare even for me an experienced social worker,” she said.

Although she never dreamt of being an entrepreneur, Ms. Coglietta said that starting and building Care Sift has been a truly gratifying experience. She and her amazing team, whom she describes as “professional, compassionate and committed to doing what’s right for our seniors and supporting our care providers,” are the reason she said Care Sift works with every hospital on Oahu. And, the reason Care Sift has hundreds of partners, including care homes, foster homes, assisted living communities, skilled nursing facilities, adult day care centers, and in-home caregiver agencies. “We’ve expanded to include all types of senior care options for families seeking senior care to accommodate every budget and level of care needed,” Ms. Coglietta said.

Ms. Coglietta is a local girl, having grown up in Kaneohe and graduated from Castle High School. She earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and a Master of Social Work Degree at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. She lives in Kaneohe with her husband, Dennis, and their two sons, Maverick, six years old, and Lennox, three years old. They enjoy the outdoors, and all watersports as a family. And they especially love spending time with family and friends.
