It’s free to create a profile at Mycare to find support workers in your area. Carers NZ works closely with Mycare, the online place where people seeking or offering home-based help can connect with each other. More than 3,500 workers across the country are registered with Mycare. As well as finding workers, you can organise schedules, set up a support circle, and pay your workers. List as many jobs as you wish, and reach out to any worker of interest! Call Mycare on 0800 677 700 during business hours, or click on the link to sign up.
