About Us

"May you find joy in loving one another well."

Elizabeth Dameron-Drew, Co-founder & President
Our Company

As a women-founded and run business, Ways & Wane understands the challenges of working women and their partners. Sandwiched between parents and parenting, streamlined childcare and eldercare answers become a necessity.

Our Founding Story

For both co-founders Deborah McDonald and Elizabeth Dameron-Drew, the caregiving journey is a deeply personal one.
After walking beside an elderly loved one in his waning phase of life, they committed to helping other working daughters and sons.

With combined experience in professional staffing, caregiving and technology, the founding team developed this proprietary high-tech/high-touch approach. Fragmented eldercare and childcare information coupled with the overwhelmingly busy lives of professionals spotlighted the need for this platform.

Behind the Name

Ways & Wane provides practical and honor-filled ways to navigate an older adult’s waning season. In 2022, the need of the sandwich generation caring for both kids and elderly parents demanded childcare solutions as well. Ways & Wane solves family care challenges for busy professionals.
