Network Helps Coordinate Care

It seems to be the trend. In April I wrote about CarePilot, which helps families find home health providers.

Now a similar service is being announced. provides an online marketplace connecting people seeking care services--babysitter, nanny, au pair, senior care, tutor, dog walker, or other care provider--with a national and local network of trusted providers. The website offers a single destination for people seeking expert advice and practical tools for finding the best options and resources that address their specific care needs. It also offers a reliable platform for qualified caregivers to promote services and connect with prospective families on a local and national scale.

As a subscription-based business, charges care seekers a monthly fee as low as $10 USD for unlimited access to a trusted network of providers, free background checks on every prospective care provider, e-newsletters offering expert advice, and a wealth of valuable information to help people achieve lifestyle balance amidst ever-changing care needs. Providers can list their services for free.

Unlike similar sites that offer a single area of care, claims to be the only website providing customers a breadth of services for children, pets, seniors, and students, as well as pre-screened provider information, video profiles, and a reference database accessible by all subscribers.

With families spread across the nation, such services are going to be increasingly important.
