Care.com offers different membership options for users, each with varying costs and features. The basic membership allows users to set up an account, post a job, view caregiver profiles, and access certain resources. However, to message providers, users need to upgrade to a paid version.
The standard paid version of Care.com includes access to messaging with caregivers, hiring a caregiver, Care.com’s on-demand booking feature, and deals and discounts. Users have the option to choose between an annual or monthly payment plan.
The premium membership includes all the features of the basic membership, as well as the ability to contact caregivers directly, interview them, hire them, and use Care.com’s on-demand booking feature. Additionally, users have access to unlimited criminal and motor vehicle checks and exclusive deals and discounts offered by Care.com.
For those who require more in-depth background checks on caregivers, Care.com also offers this option per their policies for an additional fee.
