ATLANTA, Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As many Americans are discovering, finding the perfect care service for a senior loved one is challenging. Per data from a 2015 AARP report, approximately 43.5 million adults provided unpaid elder care, mainly to relatives. This number only stands to grow as Baby Boomers age, and CareLike has come up with a solution.
Historically, care seekers could use senior care referral services to find an assisted living community or home health aide that is the right fit for their loved one. However, they would get information to only a select number of providers who paid to have their profiles hosted on the referral company's website. This means care seekers could miss out on providers who might more closely fit their needs, have more esteemed credentials or elicited better patient reviews.
The senior care referral industry has been around for years, and so has CareLike. That's why this organization has the experience and expertise required to drive much-needed change. Their new business model truly puts the patient first. Everyone who is a licensed senior care professional - not just those who pay to play - shows up in CareLike's comprehensive database of providers. This is because CareLike pulls from 400 different sources to gather data on senior and post-acute care providers. The organization then goes to great lengths to clean, filter and augment the data to give care seekers the most up-to-date and accurate picture of each provider.
This methodology has made CareLike not only a trusted resource for consumers but also the preferred partner for organizations who help consumers find care, which range from health insurance companies and patient advocacy groups to renowned health organizations, including the Alzheimer's Association.
If you haven't heard of CareLike, it may be because the company has always worked behind the scenes providing well-known, reputable organizations with data. Now that this company aims to appeal to consumer care seekers, CareLike will share providers' information with both licensees and family members looking for senior services.
CareLike is the only online referral company that provides that type of exposure for providers - to both consumers and channel partners. Meanwhile, CareLike differentiates from its competitors by giving care seekers access to all providers in the area, not just those who pay for a profile. CareLike will display all available information, truly giving families the power of choice and the ability to make informed decisions. Discover the possibilities for yourself at CareLike.com.
