How We Make Money
Our primary mission at SeniorAdvice.com is to provide expert information and assistance for seniors and their caregivers who need to find assisted living, nursing home care, in-home care, and other types of transitional senior care. We are honored when families and caregivers trust us to help them in their journeys and therefore want to provide transparency into how we are compensated for the services we provide.
The compensation we earn allows us to offer our services free to all consumers and to continuously create new content to help inform those facing the challenges of an aging loved one.
Our revenue comes from three sources: 1) referrals to senior care advisors from our trusted partners, 2) sponsored listings in our directory, which are always marked as "sponsored," and 3) advertising on our website.
Senior Care Referrals
Consumers searching for senior housing within the United States may use our senior care directory free of charge. If they would like assistance with their search, they may call our toll-free number at 1-855-205-9448 or provide their basic contact information via one of our web forms and they will be connected to a local senior care advisor. These advisors will search for pre-screened providers in the desired area which meet the consumer's criteria and will help connect them to the communities, set up tours, or just answer any basic questions they may have. SeniorAdvice.com is paid a referral fee when a consumer is connected to one of these advisors.
Important Note: We do not ever sell or otherwise share any consumer information provided on our site for any purpose other than assisting in the search for senior care. Once a consumer is referred to a local senior care advisor, their information is not passed on to additional providers by SeniorAdvice.com. Additionally, we do not engage in email marketing to consumers outside of basic communication about their request for assistance.
We do not charge providers for listings in our directory and we do not allow providers to pay to influence editorial content or reviews on our site. We do offer sponsored listings that allow senior care providers to be featured higher in our search rankings for the areas they serve. These listings will always be clearly marked as "Sponsored" so that consumers know they are being promoted for a fee and are not recommended by SeniorAdvice.com. If you own or manage a senior care community or service provider and would like to be listed in our directory, or you would like to inquire about sponsored listings, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Occasionally we may display advertisements on our website for products we think will be useful to our audience. Any products or services advertised on SeniorAdvice.com are thoroughly researched and vetted. However, we do not sell any products directly.
Policies Regarding Other Paid Services
Because we are often approached by third parties with offers for monetary compensation, we feel it is important to outline frequently requested services that we DO NOT offer:
- We DO NOT allow paid content, blog posts, articles, or links to other websites. We may sometimes share content from third parties that we believe is valuable to our audience if the information provided is relevant, accurate, and written by someone who has a good reputation and expertise on the subject matter.
- We DO NOT sell consumer information for marketing purposes. This includes sending email marketing messages to consumers who have requested assistance through our website.
- We DO NOT sell aggregate data about our users, such as demographics and information on user behavior.
- We DO NOT accept fees from senior care providers to influence content or consumer reviews, nor do we endorse any senior housing facilities or care providers.
