We get recommendations in various way from word-of-mouth to industry professionals recommendations. But nowadays we can also get recommendations from online review sites like Yelp, other senior health care bloggers given their personal opinion, or even asking those that stay at the facility what they think.
Whether you are getting your recommendation from your best friend in the same scenario as you or from several yelpers or Tweeters, you should still always confirm those recommendations yourself.
Find out if what others are saying is true, afterall you can't trust everybody and we all have different perspectives and opinions. This not only goes for elderly care, but also applies to day care, child care, inhome services providers, resturants and more... But if a facility have many bad recommendations or a plethora of bad reiews, maybe you could save yourself the time from checking them out.
What's most important is TRUST, and trust that they provide the exact services your are looking for with professionalism and love. Because afterall you are sending your loved ones there.
