Why us? Superior trust & safety matters!

Back Kiwi Made

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).

We care about our customers, our reputation, being the best we can be providing local communities with outstanding service is our priority and we really appreciate your support.

Automated Safety Gates

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.

Old Fashioned Checks

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.

Carer profiles contain in-depth information covering experience, availability, skills, capabilities & more to help you save time and make an informed decision on who may be the best fit for you and/or your loved ones.

Private Messaging

Our private messaging system enables you to keep your private contact details secure and exchange them direct with other parties you choose, liaise back-and-forth around the finer details like dates, times and expectations.

Notifications are sent to your email address letting you know when you receive a message.

Approved Vetting Agency

We're registered as an approved vetting agency with the New Zealand Police, if you would like to have us carry out a police vet on your behalf please contact us.

Secure Location System

We only send your suburb to the client side, be mindful that other sites that show location maps with a pin or general area circled can be disclosing your exact location. We've reviewed several sites that send your exact latitude and longitude coordinates to the client to show a location pin or circle centre with map zooming disabled, the browser source code containing your coordinates are easily obtained, simply paste in to Google Maps enabling the ability to zoom in on the user's exact address.


Interested in what others thought of a carer based on experience, take a look at their reviews. Care seekers can leave carer's reviews to share with other members of Carefinder, only registered members can leave a review.

Don't discount someone who doesn't have any reviews on our website, get in touch with them and ask for any testimonials they may personally have.

Your safety & security is important to us, we've spent just as much time and effort here as we've have the entire site, have a question? Get in touch with us.
