How are care workers ranked in search results?

Search Results

The Better Caring platform makes life easier for clients when searching for Care Workers by providing a ranking system that puts the best matches at the top of search results.

The top 3 spots in Search Results are ranked by a combination of:

  1. Location

The proximity of your address to the care worker’s address. Local care workers will be ranked at the top of search results.

  1. Customer Feedback Ranking

You can provide feedback to the care workers you book. Care workers who have positive feedback from other clients will appear at the top of your search results.

  1. Better Caring Badges

The Better Caring team assigns badges to care workers. Care workers awarded with a Better Caring badge appear at the top of search results.
