Family Testimonials

When I started searching for an assisted living facility for my mom, it was difficult. Agencies wouldn't let me see the facility unless I gave them personal information. Carewatchers offered me a list of four assisted living facilities in my city. The facilities were excellent, and I set-up appointments to see them all.

The Carewatchers website helped me find four assisted living facilities in my city. Since Carewatchers doesn't charge a referral fee, the first months' payment went directly to the facility for my dad's care. Nice! I would recommend this service to anyone that needs to place their loved one.

I thought Carewatchers was great for two reasons. They give you the choice of calling four facilities which they supply or having four assisted living facilities to call you. Calling them on my time worked out well for me to consult about mom's care, especially with my busy schedule.
