How Carewatchers Help In-Home Care Agencies
One of the biggest missteps for in-home care agencies is to stop promoting their home care agency because of the economy. Millions of baby boomers rely on in-home care services for medical care, basic home care needs, transportation, and errands. Home care for seniors will always be needed, and the economy certainly won't change that.
For this reason, Carewatchers has made our online referral source affordable, so you can always promote your agency. Our service delivers in-home care agencies an additional online presence and provides consumers with online searches to find home care in ways you can't. We promote your in-home care online for referrals, leads and new clients 24 hours.
• Carewatchers will list your in-home care agency on our website just like other referral agencies. However, we place YOUR phone number in the listing instead of OURS. Now potential clients can call you directly from the listing, to eliminate the cost of leads.
• Carewatchers does not charge in-home care agencies for leads like other agencies when we refer a client. In fact, Instead of paying for leads, wouldn't it be more beneficial to use the money on the increased cost of staffing?
• Carewatchers puts the number of the in-home care agency in the listing allowing social workers and discharge planners to call directly regarding home care for private pay and Medicaid clients.
• Carewatchers offers in-home care agencies an affordable and viable alternative to help attract new clients while waiting on referral agencies for leads.
How Our Service Works
Carewatchers will list your in-home care agency in our database within 24 hours, send a welcome email, and assign a representative. Potential clients will have a couple of ways to reach you from the listing. They can call directly using the number in the listing, and they can fill out a form in the listing that is forwarded to you via email, providing information about their loved one's care needs and care budget.
Finally, if the consumer calls us instead of going to the listing, we get details about the type of care or services needed and their care budget. The family selects the city where they seek service and which agencies they would like to be in touch with from our listings. This information is forwarded via email to the in-home care agencies selected and followed up with a call from us to ensure it did not go into a spam folder.
