Care.com offers a variety of membership options with different features and costs. The basic membership allows users to set up an account, post a job, view caregiver profiles, and access certain resources provided by Care.com. However, to message providers, users need to upgrade to a paid version.
There are four different paid membership options: annual standard, monthly standard, annual premium, and quarterly premium. The standard paid version offers access to messaging with a caregiver, hiring a caregiver, Care.com’s on-demand booking feature, and deals and discounts. The premium membership includes all the features of the basic membership, with the added ability to contact caregivers directly, interview them, hire them, and use Care.com’s on-demand booking feature. Users with a premium membership also get unlimited access to criminal and motor vehicle checks and exclusive deals and discounts offered by Care.com.
In addition to the membership options, members also have the option to purchase more in-depth background checks through the company. These checks provide additional security and information for those looking to hire caregivers through Care.com.
