What is it about?
Care.com's official app lets users easily browse through the profiles of many different types of caretakers, from babysitters, nannies, dog walkers and sitters, and even a caretaker for disabled or elderly folk. You can also put up a job posting and get notified of caretakers who apply for your job. Contact them, set up an interview process to find the right person for the job, and then pay them through the easy payments system of Care.com. No matter who you are — either looking for a caretaking job or need a caregiver — Care.com has you covered.
