Care Seeker FAQ's

Here is a collection of FAQ's to help you.

Carelike has a full team of Quality Assurance professionals working to be certain that the information we provide to our care-seekers is accurate and up to date. Unfortunately, there have been several competitors who have tried to steal this data from our site for their own use. In order to keep this from happening, we ask that our care-seekers log in for a secure search. Additionally, once you are logged in you are granted access to valuable resources, articles, and check-lists to help you with your transition of care needs.
Carelike prides itself on being transparent and non-biased. In fact, that is why we created our CareMatch technology so you can make informed decisions. We do not have counselors or care managers on our staff to help guide you. However, if you need more assistance, we do recommend you speak to a Geriatric Care Manager. In fact, you can find a Geriatric Care Manager by searching under the category, "Geriatric Care Managers."
Yes! When using our legacy search site, if you are looking at the search results you can click the clip-board icon on the upper right side of the provider's listing. If you are inside the provider's profile, click on the wording, "Copy to Clipboard." You can then paste it into any document you choose, including an email. Repeat this process to add more than one provider.
Carelike values itself on being the most comprehensive and transparent search directory available. This means, we make efforts to list all known providers and their information, not just providers who purchase a subscription and add enhanced details. Most of our data is pulled from freely available state licensing data sources. This information is then aggregated and made available through our search technology. Unlike many other senior services search databases, we list all known providers and not just providers with whom we are contracted.
The CareMatch technology tailors the search results to providers that best match care-seeker needs by comparing their specific medical, social, and lifestyle requirements to the provider’s service offerings. When providers create a profile within the Carelike database they are asked a series of questions. In parallel, when care-seekers come to search the site, they can optionally answer a care-seeker questionnaire. When a care-seeker chooses to do an advanced search via the CareMatch technology, specific providers are pulled into the Rank Order Scorecard which appears above the normal search results. The providers in the Rank Order Scorecard are pulled because the services they offer match with the stated needs of the care-seeker. Below the Rank Order Scorecard are the normal search results so that Carelike's care-seekers have a full listing of providers in their area and are fully equipped to make the best decision possible for their needs.
No, there is no cost to search the Carelike database.

Carelike obtains as much information as possible on each service listed within our database from over 400 data sources. In addition to obtaining information from our established resources, we regularly reach out to business owners or authorized agents of a business to claim their business listing and add additional details about the services they offer. This is in an effort to provide our users with robust information.
Carelike aggregates and maintains basic information about licensed senior service providers in the U.S. from several hundred sources at the federal, state and local levels as well as through senior service membership organizations. Basic information about non-licensed providers is collected from private sources. Detailed information is collected when senior service providers complete Provider Basic Listing or complete an Enhanced Service Profile, outlining the care and services that they offer.
