Everyone ❤️'s Carina (We're blushing... Thank you!)
"Through Carina I was able to find the two clients that I now have. I deeply appreciate the ease of using Carina to search for clients and the quick responses. I definitely prefer working with Carina clients over working for an agency." - Tina, Provider
"I love Carina! I love my new provider! I informally head up a group of families with special needs children and Carina is a hot topic. Everyone is sharing their Carina successes in finding care providers. I find Carina more accessible than other options. Carina puts the information in our hands. It's easier and more direct. People are responsible for their own posts. I would definitely recommend Carina to others and plan to use it as needed in the future." - Erika, Family Provider
"After posting a job on the site, I received many responses from caregivers willing to work. I hired one whose schedule best fit my needs, and so far, everything is going really well! Carina was very convenient and easy to use. Everything I needed to find a caregiver was contained within the site. If I need to find another caregiver in the future, I would definitely turn to Carina for my search and would recommend the website to others." - Eric, Client
"I have a client who posted a job for a weekend caregiver. She had so many responses that she had to take the ad down while she interviewed providers. Two weeks later she posted a second job to find a backup provider. She had a response within 15 minutes and hired someone right away. My client said, "It was like a dream!" I definitely recommend Carina." - Case Manager, Clark County WA
