There are several ways to make money providing non-medical caregiving. You can offer to run errands, provide 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.

Care.com is one of the oldest and largest caregiver matching services. However, it requires caregivers to pay a membership fee to communicate with clients. The fee is just $24 for six months. So it shouldn’t discourage you from using this site, which has far and away the most job options. But cancel your membership when you’re not using it. Automatically renewed memberships are the biggest complaint we see about this site. (Click here to sign up with Care.com)

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.

None of these appeal to you?
