Welcome to the HireMyCare.org!
Acumen Fiscal Agent understands that one of the challenges to directing your own care can be finding and recruiting a care provider in your area that meets your unique requirements. Pay rate, scheduling availability, skills, certification, and experience are all important factors when finding the right employee. Sometimes you may need to replace an employee quickly so that your services are not interrupted. That’s why Acumen has teamed up with HireMyCare.org to provide you with this easy-to-use registry of care workers.
No more posting jobs in the local paper or on the community bulletin board. Simply search our database of local caregivers by selecting the rate you are willing to pay, the schedule you need to fill, and certifications you require. Find what you need. Hire who you want. This is what consumer-directed care is about. This is HireMyCare.org.

Finding the caregivers to consistently fill a need can be difficult. That’s why hiremycare.org allows you speed up the process by saving a caregiver search and re-run it at any time. Each time you create a new search, you can click “Save this search and give it a unique name, (something like “Respite care Afternoons” works well) and come back to it at any time.
We also know how important it is to find caregiver whom you know and trust, that’s why you can save a caregiver as a Favorite and keep their contact information close by at all times. When viewing a caregiver record, click “Favorite” at the bottom of the caregiver profile page and they’ll be added to your list of Favorites to review and contact without searching again.
Sometimes you need more information to make a good caregiver choice, or want to let a caregiver know you’re interested in hiring them at a later date. hiremycare.org’s built-in messaging system allows you to easily contact caregivers and vendors anonymously, without fear of exposing any private information.

- If you want to reach out to new caregivers or vendors, you can select one from the search results of caregivers or vendors near you and contact them on their profile page, or you can contact Favorite Caregiver and Vendors directly.
Hiring a Caregiver For Your Job
When a caregiver applies to your posted job, you can hire them immediately. Under “Notifications” on your dashboard, you’ll see the caregivers who have applied to your posting. Once you’ve chosen a caregiver that fits best with your needs, you can mark them as a Favorite to keep track of them for later and hire them for your job.
After you’ve had a chance to work with your new employee, please take a moment to rate their level of care, from one star (marginal) to five stars (superb).
If you need to release the caregiver from your job and look for someone else, you can click on that caregiver in your Favorites and release them from your employment.
