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. With the help of friends and family, Elder Care Helper launched mid-November. As part of her business Elder Care Sources, LLC, Cherco also offers consultations for those who seek to discuss needs, options and costs with a live person.
