How does CareLinx work?

What types of home care services does a caregiver normally provide?

Your loved one gets personalized care to help with routine daily activities like grooming, meal preparation, grocery shopping or errands, bathing, exercise, and transportation.

On CareLinx, each caregiver sets their own pay rate, which typically ranges between $10-25/hour depending on qualification and care needs. At home care can help provide flexibility for families.
