We were in search of a residential care home for our mom because of their small home-like setting. The Carewatchers website made it easy to find homes in our city that we could call directly. We enjoyed not having to go through an agency to speak to care homes.

I found Carewatchers online while trying to locate some residential care homes for our dad. I filled out a form and had the choice of calling the four homes they listed in my area or having them call me. Other agencies overwhelmed me with phone calls from all over, and I didn't like that.

It was nice to hear that Carewatchers doesn't accept a referral fee from residential care homes. They said the money would be best used by the home to care for the residents. Our family appreciated hearing this. We thank you Carewatchers, for thinking of others.
