Home Care Assist allows careseekers and care managers to find and hire caregivers from a database of profiled, vetted candidates. You avoid paying any overhead to a full-service agency and yet are provided with the guidance and knowledge necessary to connect with suitable caregivers in your area. With Home Care Assist, the care recipient is the employer but we’ve removed a lot of the guesswork involved in finding the right person.
Other agencies allow careseekers to post job listings and leave it up to the caregiver to seek out employment. Our model of “match-making” flips this employment process. The established list of caregivers have completed their profiles, passed their background checks, and are ready for work. Once registered, a careseeker views a database of matched caregivers listed in order of percent compatibility to their needs. The careseeker’s inbox won’t be flooded with responses to Craigslist ads or job postings. Instead, the careseeker is in the position to view a set of candidates whose backgrounds have already been checked, and whose skills and interests match those of the care recipient.
Matches between careseekers and caregivers are based on skills and availability, plus proximity, interests, and lifestyle. We believe that this is the key to establishing long-term, meaningful home care relationships.
