Senator Investigates Assisted Living Referral Service Practices

U.S. Senator Bob Casey, chairman of the Senate Special Committee on Aging, has expressed concerns regarding the practices of A Place for Mom, a major assisted living referral service. He alleges that the service misleads consumers by marketing itself as an unbiased and free option, despite only suggesting facilities that pay a commission. This commission-based model excludes many available facilities, potentially compromising the quality of care received by clients. Recent reports indicate that some of the service’s top-rated facilities have been cited for providing substandard care.

In his recent communications, Senator Casey has requested detailed information from A Place for Mom, including revenue data, referral patterns, and contract specifics, to better understand the implications of their business model. His efforts highlight broader issues within the assisted living industry, such as inadequate care and the influence of profit-driven motives over client welfare.
