After looking through the applicants to your job you can go ahead and message the ones you think would be best suited for your family. Get an idea of price they charge and then you can decide on which ones you want to meet.

After messaging the sitters, please set up an interview. We highly recommend that you do it face-to-face; also, if you can, introduce the sitter to your family. Although, we are confident in the quality of sitters in the CareFinder community, selecting a sitter is a very personal decision and, at the end of the day, the sitter you hire is your choice.
