I commend the FTC for blocking the merger of APFM and Caring.com. These online lead generation companies do not protect the rights of seniors and their families and the merger of these two large entities is not in the consumer!s best interest. Online senior referral lead generators confuse the consumer and are not upfront about their contract process. Consumers do not receive personalized referrals and the senior housing industry does not receive viable referrals. Please continue to review the practices of the online senior referral agencies and protect the senior consumer. Thank you
