Elder Care Helper Launches Consumer-Focused Provider Evaluation Tools
Date:4/3/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 03, 2013

Elder Care Helper announces the launch of online Provider Evaluation tools that help consumers evaluate and find the right long-term care provider for themselves or a loved one.

“Our Provider Evaluation tools aim to bring clarity and confidence to one of life’s most important decisions,” says Susan Cherco, Elder Care Helper founder. “Our tools promote self-guided discovery that allow consumers to make informed, apples-to-apples comparisons of long-term care providers and, ultimately, have greater confidence they’ve found the provider and setting that best meets their individual circumstances and needs.”

These new resources were built with expert input to help consumers evaluate assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, home care options and nursing home providers. They include:

  • Checklists: These printable evaluation tools include must-ask questions for consumers to complete as they evaluate care providers. A unique, side-by-side format allows consumers to perform the same evaluation and track findings across three different providers.
  • User Guides: These guides help consumers understand the evaluation criteria and implications—knowledge that creates more transparency in the marketplace and a more informed consumer base.
  • Best Practices: Our best practices show what ‘excellence’ looks like for each type of provider—serving as additional context as you evaluate providers.

“Each care setting poses unique considerations,” Cherco says. “Our new tools help consumers understand these distinctions and prepare them to ask the right questions as they evaluate the long-term care provider they need.”

About Elder Care Helper Founder Susan Cherco:
As consultant and founder of Elder Care Helper, Susan Cherco has a Master’s degree in Gerontology and has worked in the elder care field as a care manager and court-appointed guardian for 10-plus years. In the last several years, she has wanted to find a way to offer free, unbiased information to help people navigate the maze of long-term care and find the best care possible with no strings attached – no referral fees from providers and no fees for access to the site.
