Through this business relationship, MySeniorCare will drive highly qualified leads to more than 200 Home Helpers franchises nationwide by connecting them with an audience of families actively seeking home care services for their loved ones.

MySeniorCare allows families to search, review and connect with more than 10,000 prescreened member providers in the home care, senior housing, and hospice industries through a directory-decision tool.

Families can find the directory on MySeniorCare’s website and through its affiliate partners, including insurance companies, pharmacies, associations, media publishers and web search.
