Short-term/Temporary Care

Once a parent makes a request for back-up care, we locate one of our providers who has experience with the specific age of the child(ren). Providers and parents have an opportunity to speak with one another before the provider comes to the family's home to go over instructions and negotiate the salary. At the end of the day, the family pays the provider the hourly fee. The agency daily referral fee is charged to the parents credit card.
