Well, has all that information readily available in one place! As a new addition to the family of sites including and, provides a neat online database for families to search for babysitters, housekeepers, tutor, pet sitters, companion/eldercare, personal assistance, gardeners and other miscellaneous help. Whether you need a caregiver for a few hours or a few days, You'll find one at

Being a mom herself, Candi Wingate, President of, understands exactly how hard it is to find a quality, trustworthy caregiver. That's why she created this website to make the search process as simple and painless as possible. You may get a FREE preview of available caregivers through their local neighborhood mapping technology. Just follow two simple steps: 1) Select the type of caregiver either from the drop-down menu on the front page or click on the relevant tab; 2) Type in your zip code and click the double arrow. VoilĂ , you'll get not only a list of the caregivers within 25 miles of your zip code, but also their pictures and short bios, which include a fair amount of information about each candidate. I did a search for babysitters in my neighborhood and got 1,189 on the list!

If you like what you see in the free preview, you may want to register as a paid member and enjoy such exclusive benefits as immediate access to contact caregivers via email and phone, sample interview questions, a sample reference form and a sample contract. also gives you advice, tips and information that will help you and your caregiver connect on a social and personal level.

Here are some tips that highly recommend families using when hiring a caregiver:
1. Do a background check on the caregiver that you hire. Definitely run a criminal background check. If the caregiver will be transporting the children or doing errands; you will also want to run a driving record.
2. Do your reference checks. When getting phone #'s on the references; we highly recommend you can call land lines - since you can track the land lines on who the # belongs to.
3. Make sure you spell out and have a detailed conversation on the expectations for the caregiver. Have the caregiver ask numerous questions as well. Communication is the best tool for a successful relationship.
4. Not sure what questions to ask the caregiver? Take advantage of the sample list of questions we have for registered members 5. If you do not see the caregiver often; have a notepad where you can both make notes for a communication tool.

I looked for eldercare as a gift to a family I know. There is one in there zip code. I'm assuming the giveaway is for the care4hire fee, but they would have to pay an hourly fee to the caregiver. Is that correct?
