Referral Fees - not for Chosen with Care

The Sunday Times newspaper has today exposed the referral scandal where agents receive huge commissions for referring clients suffering from addictions to companies who want access to those clients.  Making this practice public is long overdue.  Unfortunately is also prevalent in the care industry.

Chosen with Care does not take referral fees from any of the companies that it recommends.  We work only for our families who pay us for our time and expertise.  We often referr to ourselves as 'surrogate daughters' as we will do everything we can to provide the very best outcome for a family, including trying to negotiate a reduction in the care fees paid to the care home.  Whilst talking to the daughter of a client a few days ago, I was referred to as her 'surrogate sister' - something I am very proud to be!

 

Thank you so much with all your help in choosing a care home for my mother in law. As I know you appreciate it is a very difficult time. My father in law died recently and my mother in law could not look after herself. It has been very stressful and your help at this time has been invaluable. I found that you really did care and were always there when we needed you. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else. Jeremy Lyons
