I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for stopping the merger of A Place for Mom and Caring.com. I have been a placement service for almost 20 years and although it is a caring business, businesses like the above mentioned have turned placing our seniors into a zoo. Using seniors only for making money off them and the bottom line. These two companies have harassed family members and once someone inadvertently looks at a website, sometimes not knowing it belongs to them, they are in their system and for the rest of their lives, whether or not they use their services. I have heard horror stories from families and from administrators. These families and seniors need to be protected at this vulnerable time in their lives so please investigate Consumer Protection laws from on line sources. Thank you for helping keep our seniors safe from predators like A place for Mom and Caring .com. Karen Rowell
