Introducing BookJane: On Demand Care an app matching qualified caregivers for your senior parents or young children. This is caregiving 2.0 that takes your search for a caregiver to a digital platform which is easy. The keywords you want to note here are: mobile, vetted, filtered.
BookJane is a caregiving app that provides qualified caregivers on-demand. Download on the App Store or get it in Google Play. You can search, in minutes, for caregivers for seniors and children alike. You can also filter your search for experience, credentials, languages, and availability.
You specify the care date and time required, your chosen filters, and type of care (for seniors or children)…and it brings up a list of potential on demand care choices.
You may need companionship or light housekeeping for your senior parent. Or perhaps an engaging and responsible babysitter for your kids.
Are the caregivers vetted?
BookJane partners with Checkr to conduct a thorough background check of each potential caregiver. Included in each background check they ask for two pieces of valid government identification; an address history search; a search against Province, National, and Federal databases.
In addition, each caregiver must have a two-tier background check, including a reference check and vulnerable sector check which takes place in-person at a police station.
Additionally, BookJane caregivers are…
- First Aid & CPR certified
- Experienced professionals
- Trained in both in-class and ongoing
- Interviewed and pre-screened in person
Can I communicate with a Jane before she comes to my house?
Yes, you can chat with your Jane via the BookJane app before you book. Feel free to ask specific questions,get to know each other and easily arrange for a phone or in-person meeting.
You can also read reviews from other customers and see their star rating to help with your decision making.
You have the ability to review Janes and create favourites so that you can re-book the same Jane you connect with.
How do I book Jane?
Open the app. Search by your address (or caregiver name if you have a favourite). Enter the date you need caregiving (it could be right now or in a week). Choose the type of care you need (senior care or child care). And press search.
How does Jane get paid?
Flat rates (Child care – $21.00/hour and senior care – $25.00/hour) with in-app payment mean no awkward negotiation or rate guessing. Your credit card is automatically charged through the app.
It’s as easy as ride sharing or paying for a taxi.

PARENT CLUB TIP: creating a list of favourite babysitters and caregivers in your area makes life easier for when you need arranged care giving. Include your kids experience and reviews when creating your favourite babysitter list. Consider what is important to you for a favourite babysitter: vetting, experience, languages, reviews, proximity.
