Find a compassionate nanny
Tibetan Care™ is a fully licensed, bonded and insured nanny agency serving the New York area. We are the region's most reliable resource for skilled nannies, housekeepers and adult home companions.
Our service is designed to find your family the most experienced, qualified and gentlest caregiver, thoroughly safety-trained and ready to support your family. Here's a step-by-step explanation of how we help you hire a nanny.
In-Person Candidate Interviews
Every candidate is interviewed at least twice, usually first on the phone and then in person. Candidates are evaluated based on their experience, safety skills and temperament. Nannies must be gentle, compassionate and patient as well as experienced, skilled and open to continuing professional education.
All Tibetan Care nannies receive several hours of professional education via a blended model of in-person training and online certificate courses.
We continue providing our caregivers with useful information and optional weekend seminars long after they are placed in homes.

Early Intervention (catching and reporting signs of developmental disabilities)
Tibetan Care accepts candidates with a minimum of two work references that can be verified by our agency. Did your nanny communicate well? Did she show interest and initiative? Where was she strongest and what were her growing edges? Why did she leave? We ask these and several other questions to previous employers and, because we are a Tibetan owned and operated agency, we are able to learn about the nanny from her own friends, relatives and acquaintances. This gives us a 360-degree view of each nanny's skills and personality.
All background checks are conducted by Tibetan Care and included in the cost of the placement fee. We understand that nannies and home companions provide a highly personal service and we make sure all of our caregivers are thoroughly screened.
Work Agreement Support
The Family-Caregiver Work Agreement should be as comprehensive as possible. It's important for both parties to agree early on exactly what the nanny's responsibilities are and at what reimbursement level. It's always possible to amend the work agreement later on, but having clear "rules of the road" at the beginning will help ensure the best possible relationship.
Advice on NANNY SALARY, Payroll & Tax Issues
Nanny pay varies depending on many factors: experience and skill of the nanny, number and age of children, and expected duties in the household to name a few. Tibetan Care works closely with families to help determine a mutually acceptable wage.
Although each family manages payment independently, Tibetan Care encourages all clients to reimburse their nanny or adult home companion "over the table". This will have positive impact on the nanny (e.g. helping her establish credit and become eligible for unemployment insurance and Social Security) and may benefit the family's own tax position.
Regular Follow-Up With Family and Caregiver
Unlike other nanny agencies, Tibetan Care follows up and continues professional education with our nannies long after they're placed in homes. We provide them with important safety reminders, recipes, ideas for activities and more throughout the year.
