Since early 2020, everything has changed due to the pandemic. Communities found themselves unable to take new residents, and families were unable to see their loved ones. In some cases, the virus spread from one community to another. It was clear there would be changes in community protocol. After stepping back for a couple of months, Carewatchers thought it would be an excellent time to organize a virtual focus group to see how our team could better service communities going forward.
Carewatchers did some thinking outside the box to satisfy focus group questions. We believe the changes we made to our service below is the perfect solution in meeting their request. Never before has there been such a unique relationship between an agency and community.
Carewatchers is dominant in search engines in over 7000 cities nationally and several hundred cities in Canada. We maintain an advantage over other agencies when it comes to organic search result coverage. These service changes will make an immense difference in your internet exposure, giving your community more opportunities to fill vacancies.
How Carewatchers Fills Your Community Vacancies
Most community websites are not in the search results until the third or fourth page, which doesn't help much. Carewatchers' organic search results cover many common keywords consumers use to find communities. We use keywords such as placement, referral, agency, service, senior, community, care, etc. When you list your community with us, you'll see an increase in your community exposure. Your community will be in more first-page listings providing your community with more opportunities to fill vacancies. That's how we fill vacancies.
How Carewatchers Eliminates the Referral Fee
As you know, referral agencies list communities on their website that have contracts with their agency. The agency places its 800 number in each community listing, which means the agency has control over the incoming call. Carewatchers lists your community on our website. However, instead of placing OUR contact number in our search results listings, we place YOURS. That way, potential residents can contact your community directly, which eliminates the referral fee.
