Carewatchers is the next generation elder/senior facility placement and referral agency. Carewatchers does not receive referral fees from any of our senior care options and our service is free to the potential resident. We are exclusive to senior housing facilities, senior living communities, senior in-home care agencies and adult day care health centers.
Carewatchers offers a unique, supportive, and compassionate process in helping you choose the best senior care option for your loved one. Carewatchers works with a nationwide network of specialized senior housing facilities, in-home care agencies and adult day care health centers that take pride in maintaining quality care and protecting resident's rights. In each city we partner with three facilities that accept private pay and work with three facilities that accept Medicaid.
Carewatchers is a referral agency that has two roles. Our first role helps families find the appropriate senior housing or in home care agency. When a family is faced with having to place a loved one in a senior housing facility it's a very difficult time. When your family is coping with a loved one with a progressive disease such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other health conditions, considering senior housing and care agencies is not easy. Emotions of guilt, sadness, and frustration are normal. Carewatchers offers experience and compassion to help you through such a difficult process.
Our second role is helping senior housing facilities fill their vacancies. We partner with facilities and in-home care agencies that accept private pay and Medicaid residents. Keeping facilities full with residents can be challenging for providers. We help providers by sending them referrals and by marketing their facilities in our directory. It is important that we match the resident to the right facility. Carewatchers does not list facilities that have violations for abuse, neglect or violating resident’s rights.
There comes a time when a person or loved one becomes uncomfortable with living alone due to the possibilities of falling, getting sick, safety issues, forgetting to take medications, loneliness, poor nutrition, or difficulty taking care of household responsibilities. It is important to recognize these signs early and work with your loved one to determine the most appropriate senior living situation.
There is a broad array of senior housing options available to seniors from staying in your own home to specialized facilities that provide round-the-clock nursing care. To begin planning for a new living situation one must first be aware of the different senior options of elder/senior housing available and to learn which type will best suit your needs. Below we have provided information on each senior option of elder/senior housing and care.
After your initial contact with us, one of our senior advisors will need information from you regarding your preliminary medical diagnosis, financial status and social/cultural needs depending on the senior option. The preliminary medical diagnosis is needed to give the provider an idea of the level of care required. The financial information of your care budget informs us if you will pay privately, if you have long-term care insurance or if you will need to apply for Medicaid. Next you'll be asked to select the city which is most convenient for you and your loved ones.
Once you have chosen your desired location, with your permission your information is sent to our three specialized senior housing facilities. After their review, appointments to tour the facilities are arranged. If you prefer, we can provide you with the information of these three providers for you to follow up with. Once you've selected a facility, a medical assessment will be done to determine the level of care and cost of that care.
