Waltham, MA (PRWEB) November 18, 2009
Today Care.com (http://www.care.com), the premier source of trustworthy care options, announced several new partnerships which further its mission of helping families find local, experienced caregivers.
Care.com now offers full access to its nationwide network of trusted caregivers at a lower cost to employees of Google and Disney Publishing Worldwide along with participants in the employee benefit and savings programs YouDecide, Working Advantage and Employee Mall. These new Care.com partnerships offer families discounted access to the high quality, local babysitters, nannies, senior caregivers, pet sitters, tutors and other care providers listed on Care.com.
“These new partnerships are great opportunities to make sure more families have the care they need for their children and loved ones,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com. “We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with quality organizations that care about their employees and members and share our mission of helping others.”
Organizations looking to improve work/life balance for their employees and members while giving them additional caregiving options have found Care.com to be an invaluable resource. With a nationwide network of experienced caregivers, useful online tools and comprehensive educational content, the service equips families with a wide array of resources to assess and meet their care needs.
“At Google, we have found the Care.com service to be a great way to provide our employees with access to high quality child and senior care providers for both backup and primary care," said Google spokesperson Rachel Nearnberg.
Employees who take advantage of these new corporate savings programs receive the full benefit of Care.com membership, which includes access to last-minute care options through Care-on-Call™ (http://www.care.com/careoncall)] and babysitting co-ops with other local families via Care Exchange™ (http://www.care.com/careexchange).
Families in need of caregivers can search by type of care, experience, availability, pay rate and more to find high-quality care providers in their area. As an added benefit to care-seeking families, caregiver profiles on Care.com include references and background checks, and a team of experienced moms reviews all provider profiles before allowing them on the service. These measures provide families with extra layers of confidence and security when they make important decisions regarding their family care needs.
Founded in 2006, Care.com is the largest and fastest growing service used by families to find high-quality caregivers, providing a trusted place to easily connect, share caregiving experiences and get advice. The company addresses the unique lifecycle of care needs that each family goes through—including child care, special needs care, tutoring and lessons, senior care, pet care, housekeeping and more. The service enables families to find and select the best care possible based on detailed profiles, background checks and references for hundreds of thousands of pre-screened providers who seek to share their services. Through its Care.com for Recruiters service, Care.com also enables companies to find high-quality caregiving employees. For more information, visit http://www.care.com.
