Expert Assistance

Work with a Care.com Specialist to find the right caregiver for your family for your on-going or occasional care needs.

First, you’ll share requirements, budget, and other details for the job. Then, your Specialist will post a job and review applicants to provide you with the best options. After you identify a final candidate, you may request a Criminal and Motor Vehicle Records Background Check before making the hire.   All of this is provided at no cost to you.

Use Expert Assistance to help you find:

  • Nannies and babysitters
  • Tutors and distance learning facilitators
  • Pet sitters and groomers
  • Housekeepers
  • Special needs caregivers
  • Adult companion care
