There are several ways to make money providing non-medical caregiving. You can offer to run errands, light housekeeping and meals, or provide help with activities of daily living.

These sites can help connect you with non-medical caregiving work.

Non-medical caregiving options:

TaskRabbit allows you to advertise your availability for a wide array of services, from running errands to acting as a personal assistant. You set your own rates. The site charges buyers a fee on top of your rate to pay for the matchmaking service.

CareLinx serves as a matchmaker between caregivers and the families that need full and part-time help caring for elderly relatives. Caregivers register for free. The only cost is a $20 fee to get background-checked. 

Oneva connects caregivers of all types — child, adult, special needs care, pet-sitters, massage therapists, housekeepers and drivers — with potential clients. The clients are the employees of large companies that subscribe to Oneva’s caregiver referral service. Caregivers must pass a LifeScan, as well as other screening. Once accepted, caregivers decide what services they want to provide and what to charge. The platform also pays bonuses for signing up and referring friends. The catch? Oneva is only available in Northern California.

GoNannies matches families that need child, adult care, or household management with workers. There is no charge for caregivers to post profile and use the site. However, families must pay a membership fee. 

Urban Sitter also recently added an adult care option to its well-established babysitting site. You set your own rates. Parents pay the site’s freight, not you.

Care.com is one of the oldest and largest caregiver matching services. However, it requires caregivers to pay $20 annually for background screening and strongly pushes a $9 monthly membership plan for caregivers. Automatically renewed memberships are the biggest complaint we see about this site. So, we suggest that you sign up if you are looking for this kind of work, but decline the premium membership. 

None of these appeal to you?
