We highly recommend that you conduct an interview with the sitters you are interested in ahead of hiring them for your job. Although we are confident in the quality of sitters in the CareFinder community, selecting one is a very personal decision and, at the end of the day, the sitter you hire is your choice. Interviews can be conducted online via platforms like Skype or Zoom, or in-person, depending on your comfort level.
