Special Announcement (May 2014)
Caring.com has joined the Bankrate network of websites focused on providing objective and comprehensive information to help consumers make difficult decisions. As part of Bankrate, our social mission will remain the same, and we'll be better able to grow to help millions more family caregivers across America as quickly as possible.
Caring.com is the leading online destination for those seeking information and support as they care for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones. Our mission: to help the helpers. We equip family caregivers to make better decisions, save time and money, and feel less alone -- and less stressed -- as they face the many challenges of caregiving.
More than 40 million people in the United States care for someone over age 50, yet most have little preparation or experience when they begin their caregiving journey.
To make that journey a little easier, we provide personal, one-on-one guidance with a Family Advisor, thousands of original articles, helpful tools, a comprehensive local Senior Care Directory, and the collective wisdom of an involved community. Caring.com's carefully researched and expert-reviewed content includes advice from a team of more than 50 trusted leaders in geriatric medicine, law, finance, housing, and other key areas of healthcare and eldercare.
Our seasoned management team, editors, and technical staff have decades of experience producing award-winning health and family media. But perhaps more important, nearly all of us have firsthand experience as caregivers. We know well the role's practical challenges as well as its emotional ones. And we're dedicated to guiding a fast-growing population of new caregivers through both.
Editorial and Advertising Policy
As part of our mission to provide caregivers with expert, trustworthy content, we keep a strict separation between advertising and editorial content. We never allow advertisers to influence editorial content, and wherever an ad appears it is clearly labeled as an advertisement. We know that being objective and earning consumers' trust is critical for our business.
From time to time, our sponsors provide funding to help us develop special resource centers or tools. These resource centers are developed by Caring.com editors in partnership with our sponsors and are always marked as advertisements.
Caring.com makes money from paid advertisements, enhanced senior living directory listings, senior living referrals and special offers to our members.
