All payments are made automatically to the client's credit card on file. You will have an opportunity to review charges after the caregiver completes her job and checks out.  ​

Employer Responsibility

Sitterwise is a referral service for caregivers. The caregiver works directly for you; not Sitterwise. We make every reasonable effort to screen our caregivers including background checks, reference screens, and in-person interviews. You agree to hold Sitterwise harmless from any damages incurred by sitters we refer. You agree not to hire Sitterwise caregivers directly through them, but to always go through the agency.
