Caring.com Reviews Guidelines
Caring.com Senior Living Directory Ratings & Reviews
Caring.com offers the most comprehensive directory of eldercare resources, including assisted-living facilities, independent-living communities, nursing homes, in-home care, and many other service providers (such as elder law attorneys, geriatric care managers, hospice and funeral homes). Caring.com provides basic information about each provider, and offers community and expert ratings and reviews to help caregivers and their loved ones find the right resources at the right time.
We know the right fit is different for each family and individual, and we believe ratings and reviews from those with firsthand experience are valuable to others with similar needs and preferences — and helpful to service providers as well.
About Reviews At Caring.com
The reviews posted on Caring.com are the individual, subjective opinions of members and experts, and not of Caring, LLC We don’t endorse any of the opinions expressed by reviewers or the provider responses to reviews, and don’t own or operate any of the businesses listed or reviewed in the Senior Living Directory.

Like all other reviews, these reviews can be positive or negative (or in between), and will be included or rejected based only on adherence to our Review Guidelines.
We can’t guarantee or verify the accuracy of the opinions shared by individual reviewers. While Caring.com has no duty to monitor what is posted, Caring.com does reserve the right to reject or remove any review, at any time, for any reason, including but not limited to those that we deem inappropriate or outside the parameters of our Review Guidelines.
