A Friend of the Family responds both to long-term and immediate needs for Caregivers. If you need a Caregiver for a year or more on a continuous basis, you want to request a long-term placement and should speak to one of our Placement Coordinators. If you are looking for a Caregiver on a short-term or indefinite basis, you should talk to one of our Consistent Placement Coordinators. You may choose to register with A Friend of the Family and pay our annual registration fee. For a full guide to our services and fee, see our services guide.
SHORT TERM PLACEMENTS
When you call or REQUEST ONLINE with A Friend of the Family for consistent needs, you will be connected with a consistent placement coordinator who will listen carefully to you individual needs and requirements. A consistent placement coordinator will work to find a Caregiver especially for you. The Caregiver will call you directly so that you can talk to her about her experience and background. At that time, you will negotiate a rate with the Caregiver and confirm directions and the time. Each time you call to request service, you may request that we try the caregivers you have had before. We are careful to track performance and your feedback is welcome!
We can help with any domestic need; no request is too large or small. Whether you have a sick child or parent, have a meeting or a night out or just need a helping hand, we are here to help you! Remember, we place even on the same day!

When you call A Friend of the Family, you will be connected to a long-term placement coordinator who will listen carefully to your individual needs and requirements. You will be sent a registration packet and a set of contracts. The coordinator will use our computer databases to search for qualified candidates and use their personal judgement to determine suitability for the position. The coordinator will then present information on the candidates she selected. Then you can decide which candidate you want based on first telephone and then in-person interviews. Once you accept a candidate, you begin a 30 day trial period. After the trial period is over, you pay the permanent placement fee. If you decide not to hire the candidate, or the candidate decides not to accept the position, you need only pay the consistent fee for days of service.
