Parents in a Pinch
Life is unpredictable...
Life is unpredictable—and families need a safety net to succeed at work and at home. Since 1984, working parents have turned to Parents in a Pinch whenever there is a gap in their regular care routine. Now, Care.com® BackupCare℠ continues that legacy. Caregivers are available day and night, seven days a week, for weekends, holidays, vacations, and overnight during a business trip—or when a child or adult is ill.
Wellesley College provides you with this access to backup care so you only pay the hourly cost of care.
1. Go to www.care.com/backupcare to register and request care, or call Care.com BackupCare directly at 855-781-1303.
2. Receive a confirmation from a Care.com BackupCare specialist to tell you about your caregiver, in addition to a caregiver profile, and a second confirmation from the caregiver to confirm the details of the job.
3. Pay the child care provider directly at the end of the day. For adult care, your credit card is charged for the appropriate hourly cost, based on care location and services provided.
