In 2007, a few friends who were each caring for an aging parent noticed a lack of information online to help them navigate the complexities of caregiving. Not finding the one-stop online resource they needed, they decided to create it themselves. The result was Caring.com.

Caring.com exists to help family caregivers like you make better decisions, save time and money and feel less alone.

Most assisted living communities offer residents the choice of all-inclusive or fee-for-service pricing. All-inclusive means that a single monthly fee covers rent, meals and any additional services a resident chooses such as housekeeping or transportation. Fee-for-service means a resident pays only for those services they use. Typically, if a resident intends to use the full suite of services an assisted living residence offers, it is less expensive to choose the all-inclusive model. If a resident will only require certain services or will use outside assistance for certain services, then the fee-for-service approach offers better cost savings. A more detailed review of assisted living pricing models is available here.
