Take great pride in supporting a 100% Kiwi venture created by a small family from Pukekohe, New Zealand (nearly every similar site is overseas owned).

Encompassing a variety of safety gates, working meticulously on automated algorithms behind the scenes to keep our site as safe as possible. For example; IP monitoring assists in capturing overseas connections where manual authorisation must be granted for registration. Bulk messaging detection to disable potential junk advertising as soon as possible until we can manually review.
We could spend countless hours writing lines of highly objective complicated code to monitor messages which can be subjective. Sometimes the old fashion way just works, we steadily manually monitor contact details and activity through our private messaging system beyond automated checks to help ensure a comprehensive approach to site safety & security.
Everyone on Carefinder can create a profile to help other carers or care seekers get to know each other.
