Post your need to the caregiver community
Find your perfect caregiver by posting a job. Detail the type of care you need, when you need the care for, and what the job includes. Caregivers will express interest if available and you can book straight from your post or view their profile for more information.
Search and filter caregiver profiles
Search all caregivers in your area and filter by distance, rate, special skills, and more. Favorite them for later or view their profile to see previous experience, availability, and reviews. You can message, book, or interview a caregiver from Search or save your search and get notified of new matches. Learn more about Search here.
Book one-time or recurring jobs and pay easily
Get to know a caregiver by messaging them or setting up a phone or in-person interview. Once you find a good fit, book them for a certain date and time or schedule recurring jobs. As you book, you’ll select the care type: child care, senior care, pet care, or household services.
When the job is over, pay your caregiver cash or use our online payment system to pay via credit card, use any applicable credits, and keep track of your history. Learn more about caregiver payments here.
Tips for getting started
- Check out a caregiver’s profile to see special circumstances they’re willing to help with such as nanny share, overnights, tutoring, making meals, and more
- Non-medical senior care can include running errands, housekeeping, and companion care - not to be used to seek healthcare professionals
- Household services can include tasks such as cleaning, errand, house sitting, or other services
