Care Seeker FAQ's

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

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 Carelike.com under the category, "Geriatric Care Managers."
Yes! After you have conducted your first search, there is a button on each provider listing that says, "Save." Simply click that button for every provider you wish you save to review at a later time. When you are ready to review all your saved providers, there's a link at the top of your search page that says, "Saved Providers." Once you click the link, "Saved Providers" it will pull in all the saved providers to view in one screen. From this screen you can also click the button, "View/Print Report" which will allow you to view a PDF of all your saved providers, or you can easily print or email the report.
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 post-acute and community care search databases, we list all known providers and not just providers with whom we are contracted.
The CareMatch technology is a benefit of the advanced search. With CareMatch, a search is tailored 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.

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 post-acute and community care providers in the U.S. from several hundred sources at the federal, state and local levels as well as through advocacy membership organizations. Basic information about non-licensed providers is collected from private sources. Detailed information is collected when providers complete their enhanced profiles, outlining the care and services that they offer.
