  • How Caregivers Find Their Best Match
    1. Create a Profile
      The first step of joining CaregiverNC is to create a profile. In addition to your basic information, your profile will showcase your skills, experience and education as a Caregiver. There is also a field where you may enter any certifications, education or licenses that pertain to your business as a Caregiver. All information submitted to CaregiverNC will be reviewed, so please ensure their validity. You will also have the opportunity to enter the distance you are willing to travel to provide care and specific services you offer. This includes entering which tasks that you are willing or unwilling to do for Care Seekers.
    2. Search for Available Caregiver OpportunitiesPlaying Cards | Elderly Care Greensboro
      With the information you’ve submitted, CaregiverNC’s matching database filters through the profiles of Care Seekers and finds potential matches that fit your specific skill set. From there, you may inquire about available caregiver requests or wait to be contacted by a potential Care Seeker.
    3. Establish Services and Your Fees
      Once you have connected with a Care Seeker, you can discuss details of the opportunity and provide any additional information they might request for elderly care and home care assistance. You will determine matters of scheduling and rate of pay directly with the Care Seeker.
