    Not content with the teenage babysitters watching your kids? Why not try renting a "Grandma?"

    Rent-a-Grandma (yes, that's the real name) aims to connect "mature" women with customers who need nannies, housekeepers, chefs, and caregivers.

    "Our Grandmas are carefully screened mature women who are only the most professional, experienced staff and meet the standards our customers will demand for their own Grandmas," the company said in a press release.

    The company does background checks and processes applicants for the "grandma" position before attempting to pair them with a family.

    Of course, age is a factor -- company founder Todd Pliss told Entrepreneur Magazine "the average age is about 60" for the "grandmas."

    The Dallas-area location is one of the first franchised locations for the Rent-a-Grandma brand.
