    This is a great system, however I think it is ridiculous to pay so much just to *find* someone. I am happy with the results though !

    Anyone looking to provide care or procure care: do yourself a favor and skip this cold, soulless, apathetic, callous, sorry excuse of a caregiving jobseeker/job-giver connection site. Bottom line is that they do not actually "care" at all about people on either side of the equation, are accountable to no-one, and their corporate image is a wolf-sham in sheep's glossy web-page clothing. They terminate "members" (caregivers and care-seekers alike) without notice and for no reason, refuse to provide details on what prompted the decision to term, and effectively ban the person for life with no recourse or appeals process (i.e. no way to clear your name if there has been an error/oversight/malicious yet unfounded complaint/etc). If, like me, you fell for their touchy-feely-warm-and-fuzzy marketing, try a quick Google search for "terminated from Care.com for no reason or explanation", and read some of the thousands of reports of their routine abuse of power in this regard; it is shocking and wholly unfathomable - until it happens to you or someone you know. With over 14M "members" in 2015, they have a virtual monopoly as the go-to site for this particular market niche, and they know it; so like any typical monopoly: THEY. DON'T. CARE. about being a responsible steward or information/connection broker. It's only about numbers and the bottom line - people's actual lives be damned. If you're not deemed "worthy" by the bean-counters or whatever powers or algorithm may be, you're just tossed like the garbage number you are to them; it's as simple as that. You may think they're "righteously discriminating" given the nature of the services being brokered, but you'd be WRONG. It's like The Capital from the 'Hunger Games' had a baby with the Erudite group from 'Divergent', who then grew up to get sorted into Slytherin House in 'Harry Potter': uncaring, unfeeling, uninterested, corporate machine. Actual quotes from termination emails: “Care.com has terminated your membership. Care.com may remove a member for any reason or no reason; any decision to do so does not constitute and should not be interpreted or used as information bearing on the member’s character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living.” “We do not have an appeals process for members whose accounts have been terminated.” “This decision is final and irreversible. No exceptions will be made to these terms.”

    I have found energetic, hard working, smart, professional and very pleasant helpers on Care. Before I discovered Care, I was literally drowning in a sea of tasks that continually backed up on me and I could never get to the bottom of them. With the helpers I found on Care, I have been able to knock all these tasks out, declutter and organize my house, clear all paper piles and significantly reduce my stress levels. This has freed me up to live my life, take care of my elderly mother, and do some things I enjoy. The reduced stress and guilt is the biggest blessing. I also enjoy the girls, they are very sweet and fun. The cost for the services is reasonable and the trade off to buy my time back is the best money I could ever spend. I am very grateful for Care. It would be impossible to find such an enormous pool of wonderful help without Care. In fact, it is impossible to find any help at all without such a service as this. I highly recommend Care.com. Thank you Care!

  • This app too often disappoints.

    ♨️‼️🌠 Why 1star? CAREGIVERS ARE OFTEN VERY BUSY PEOPLE. Please optimize your app for reliability, performance, and WORKFLOW ‼️ This app too often disappoints. Also .. CareChat .. 99% of your paying users HATE IT. Give us options. Don’t force CareChat upon those 99% who dislike it. READ ALL THE NEGSTIVE COMNENTS ON CARECHAT ON YOUR DISCUSSION BOARDS !!! ‼️‼️‼️‼️😴 Also... Takes a long time for client reviews to show up. When a client posts a review, it can take many days before it shows up on your profile. Also, with CarePro status, takes many days after you qualify before it shows up. If you respond to a voice message with a phone call (not via a text message) you will be penalized -- and you can lose your carepro designation. You MUST always respond with a TEXT message (within the system) to anything that you have received. Your voice response to a voice call request does NOT count. This is a BUG in their system. When you respond to a voice LINK with a voice CALL it should qualify as a response, it should not require another extra text response. Lost my carepro status for a week because of this problem. One more new problem with iOS 11, on iPhones it is very very very difficult to edit your text responses with him this system. It makes it almost impossible to write a text response because the EDITING capability is very very bad! Also, if you type a response, it sometimes gets flagged with erroneous characters, and it is impossible to edit and fix that problem. This is a very inconvenient system to use. This is what I'm giving the one star rating. Updated. 11/10/17. 01/09/18.
  • App is buggy

    The service is expensive but gives access to a huge resource of caregivers. It’s a jungle out there, but this is a great tool to search through it. The app is just buggy. It says this member is no longer there but it works and they respond online. The app is the issue. Use the website.
  • Don’t get your hopes up EXPENSIVE

    Seems like it’s a great app for getting a professional babysitting job. But nooooo. $60 for a background check in which no one wants to really hire you unless you have one onsite, $19 for a driving backcheck, and then the cheapest upgrade amount is for 6 months and is $10 a month and you cannot read or respond to messages people send you without the upgrade!!!!!! Money money money. Also I changed my profile picture to a pic of my boyfriend and I smiling together and I received an email saying it was inappropriate and not following guidelines. Hahahaha. Wow. Do not download. Don’t know why this app seems to have a 4.6 rating when most of the comments are negative. Disappointing
