What type of information does this Web site contain?
This site focuses on technologies that can be used in residential care settings such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities, board and care facilities, day care facilities, and continuing care retirement communities. Initial product-searching centered on four care issues; additional care issues will be added in the future. Technology product information was obtained through literature, Internet searches, long-term care buyer's guides, and by speaking with technology manufacturers and vendors at various conferences.
I'm not finding what I want when I do a search- is there a way to get better results?
Try using fewer or more general terms. Changing the form of the word by using the singular form or removing -ing or -ed might also help broaden the search results. You can also try clicking a care issue on the left side of your screen.

Why is price information not always available?
Pricing is not available on many of the more sophisticated systems represented on the site such as Assistance Call Systems and Elopement Management Systems. In large part this is due to the fact that these systems are customizable and prices will vary according to the size of the facility and the features desired. Additionally, some manufacturers and distributors do not name a price because they prefer speaking to the individual buyer. As a result, it is not possible to accurately represent price for these products.
