Premium memberships available through Care.com
From: Human Resources
As of Nov. 1, 2023, Virginia Tech full-time faculty and staff across all locations will continue to have unlimited, premium access to the Care.com network for finding child care, adult care, pet care, housekeeping, and tutoring. However, as previously communicated, the pilot program for backup-care funding and reimbursement is no longer available.
With premium access, employees can book short- and long-term care with a wide range of provider types including those with experience assisting children and adults with special needs. All caregivers within Care.com’s network have completed a background check. (See CareCheck to learn more.) Employees are able to search for caregivers, post jobs, purchase additional screening, and pay caregivers in real-time through the platform.
Employees who previously registered through Care.com will maintain their membership. Those interested in registering may do so at care.com/virginia-tech; be sure to register with your Virginia Tech email address.
While the Care.com pilot program for backup-care funding and reimbursement is no longer available, reimbursement requests for backup care that happened on or before Oct. 31, 2023, may be still be submitted to Care.com until Nov. 30, 2023.
