Eldercare Locator

Eldercare Locator


One of the few unbiased sources of information on senior housing. Most internet sites take referral fees when they make recommendations on assisted living, nursing homes and so on. At least this site is run by the government so it is somewhat better.

A Place for Mom


A Place for Mom gets paid based on referral fees from the senior living communities it recommends and provides information on, so I find it very hard to trust any of the information on the site. That means their real paying customers are the senior living companies, not the consumers who use their site. Good businesses shouldn't take referral fees. Aplaceformom's tag line "Trusted Senior Living Advisors" seems spurious. Instead, I would recommend the federal government's elder care locator site:
