Deleting an account

While we hate to see you go, we understand if you need to delete your account. A delete account option is available at the bottom of the Account Information page. A few questions need to be answered regarding feedback and troubleshooting before deletion.

Deleting an account is final, and rejoining KARE will require repeating the onboarding process. All KARE Club history and sidekicks will be removed, and promotion progress will be lost. KARE is required to keep shift data for at least 10 years due to state regulation and reporting. Tax receipts will also be sent out at the end of the fiscal year as indicated on your W9 form.


Adding or modifying healthcare license information


As referenced in the [insert link to onboarding tutorial], you can also add new healthcare licenses or additional states. All Heroes are required to go through the onboarding process again for new states and licenses. However, some of the information previously uploaded can be transferred to your new license and/or state.


Earn extra


By tapping the Earn Extra section, Heroes are able to view current promotions happening in their area. Any active promotions will be listed.



HERO perks

KARE partners with vendors to offer special deals to Heroes! You can see all vendor partnerships by tapping on the HERO Perks section.

Build your resume

ℹ️ Having a resume available for communities to view will increase your chances of being picked when applying to shifts.

Change markets and notification settings


The Settings section under your profile page will is separated into two parts:

  1. Market Settings
  2. Notification Settings


Heroes are able to add or remove markets that they want to see shifts in. If you are a HERO who likes to work in different cities or states, make sure you select multiple markets. In our article about [insert link to article about customizing notifications] we discuss how to change notification settings. By tapping the Notification Settings option, you can customize how you receive notifications through email and text. While we want to keep you informed, we highly recommend taking the time to make adjustments so that you do not feel overwhelmed.


Get in touch with KARE


Getting in touch with KARE is easy – tap the Contact Us section and call or message us. Our hours of operation are:

  • Messaging – 5 AM – 11 PM Central Time
  • Calls – 8 AM – 8 PM Central Time


W-9 form for taxes


We request that Heroes fill out a W-9 form (request for taxpayer identification number and certification) so that we can send out tax receipts at the end of the fiscal year. If you ever need to access the W-9 form that you filled out during onboarding, tap the W-9 Form section. If any changes have occurred to your address, social security number, or other identification, please contact KARE so we can have you fill out a new W-9.
