About UsThis site was created from our personal experience with nursing home, assisted living, home health care and long term care as our parents and friends became patients and residents. We are not health care professionals. Nor are we experts on aging. We are simply a family who has "been there and done that" with parents, aunts and uncles.
We are researchers, reviewers, editors and deciders with eleven years experience. Our directories and guides are assembled from public data supplied by governmental health and aging departments on both the federal and state level.
