WeKnowAPlace.com provides an online senior care placement service that gives visitors a general understanding of the elder care assisted living industry. To that extent, the Site includes general information on commonly encountered senior housing and assisted living issues. We Know A Place's Services also include a review of your answers for completeness, spelling and grammar, and for internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. At no time do we review your answers to any of our questionnaires for legal sufficiency, medical interpretation, or financial advice or accuracy. We Know A Place and its Services are not substitutes for the advice of an attorney, medical doctor, or certified financial planner. Although some of these topics may come up in phone interviews our primary Services focus on finding the best Senior Care Placement options for your loved one. We Know A Place is not responsible for decisions you make on your loved ones behalf.

We Know A Place strives to keep its documents and information accurate, current and up-to-date. However, because the elder care industry changes rapidly, We Know A Place cannot guarantee that all of the information on the Site is completely current. Geriatric Care and Senior Housing is different from region to region, and may be subject to interpretation by different States and Counties. Assisted Living and Senior Care is a personal/family matter, and no general information or referral tool like the kind We Know A Place provides can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the information contained on the Site is not legal advice, medical advice, or financial advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date.

Therefore, if you need legal, medical or financial advice for your specific situation, or if your specific situation is too complex to be addressed by our services, you should consult a licensed attorney, medical doctor, or financial planner in your area.

Our Services

We Know A Place helps families evaluate the type of care and services needed by a senior individual including an assessment of issues such as care requirements, desired price level, and amenity preferences. Once we understand the individual's and/or family’s needs and preferences, we help to identify the senior care providers in our participant group that could potentially meet those needs and preferences. The names of those providers are shared with the individual and/or family member. We also forward the individual's name and pertinent information to the provider(s) along with a request that the provider contact such individual.

Our Senior Service Partners

Any care provider that offers housing and/or supportive services to the elderly and/or disabled individuals of the nature referenced on this Site (including Alzheimer's care facilities, assisted living facilities, home care facilities, nursing home facilities, residential care facilities, retirement facilities, adult day care facilities, senior apartment facilities or hospice facilities), is eligible to be included on our website provided that such provider (1) represents to us that they are licensed, and will at all times remain licensed, by the State of California (unless their particular service does not a require licensure), and (2) has entered into an agreement with us and paid a fee, or agreed to pay a fee in the future in certain circumstances, for being included in our product and services offerings. We impose no requirements on our partner providers as to the manner in which they deliver services to residents. Each provider included in our service has agreed to charge our clients in the same way they charge other clients for the same care level. If any fees are not paid by participating partners they run the risk of being dismissed from our referral network.

No Endorsement; No Affiliation

Due to the complicated and constantly changing healthcare delivery landscape, we exercise no independent judgment as to the quality of the provider(s), nor do we endorse or any provider(s). We do not provide specific advice regarding which provider(s) you should use and you should only make decisions regarding service providers after consulting with them, your family members and other knowledgeable sources, based on your specific needs, after a thorough review and investigation. We believe and are committed to educating family members on how to assess quality care so that they can make good decisions today and every day after a loved one is placed with a provider. We Know A Place is not owned or affiliated or related in any way with any of the providers listed on our Site, except through the fee the provider pays us to be included.
