Assisted Living Made Easy
At Caring Connection, we make finding assisted living and memory care easy. We specialize in connecting families with small Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE’s), better known care homes. We prefer working with homes like these because of the high level of care for a reasonable cost, and because many seniors thrive in an intimate home environment. Especially with concerns regarding Covid-19, RCFE's are a much safer place for seniors due to isolated nature of care homes. Email today to find out how Caring Connection is keeping seniors safe and cared for.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is assisted living placement?
A: Assisted living placement is the process of connecting care homes with families looking for care.
Q: Why care homes?
A: Care homes are much smaller than the assisted living communities you may be familiar with. They are in converted residential homes and typically have 6 residents and 2 or 3 caregivers. This means you can get better care at a lower price than a large assisted living community.
Q: How do you find these care homes?
A: We use the state licensing board to locate and contact care providers. That combined with existing knowledge and experience with these care homes helps Caring Connection find the best fit for you and your family.
Q: Are care homes safe in regards to Covid-19 or other contagious diseases?
A: Absolutely. While large assisted living facilities have multiple shifts of staff, vendors, and others coming and going, care homes have live-in caregivers and nobody coming and going. This keeps their outside exposure risk much lower than large assisted living communities.
Q: How can we tour care homes during Covid-19?
A: Every care home operates differently, and we are doing our best to coordinate with them when it comes to touring. We follow their guidelines and accommodate what the care home administrators think is safest for their residents.
Q: How much do placement services cost?
A: Nothing at all! We are paid by care homes to find residents for their homes. Our goal is to keep care homes healthy and families happy, and it is your decision where your senior loved one will live. Our goal is good fits, not quick placements and commissions.
Assisted Living Placement
If it’s time to move your loved one into assisted living, Caring Connection can take the confusion out of finding a home. We work with the best providers in your area, and save you time by only touring facilities that meet your needs and have current openings. Don’t waste your time traveling to tour facilities that are full, or don’t provide the care you are looking for.
Is your loved one in an assisted living facility that doesn’t meet your standards? Do you want to move them closer to you, or into a facility more suited for their advancing level of care? We also facilitate inter-facility transfers to address changing needs.
What’s the best part? Because Caring Connection knows what facilities have openings and need residents, we can bill the facilities for our services. That means if your family member places into a facility, there is no cost to you!
