Terrible Functionality for Searching for Sitters

I recently tried searching for sitters to help a family member, and literally couldn’t even access the search box on either the app or the website. Every time I tried using it on the website, a screen kept popping up with sitters who weren’t even in my area, and I couldn’t access the website at all unless I refreshed the page. Every time I tried to type in my search criteria this box popped up. I couldn’t even put in my location, so the automatic results were absolutely useless. I also couldn’t access the search function from my app. Beyond frustrating, because I know many good sitters use this app, I just couldn’t access any of them.
