Can I Trust That Company? How to find good businesses that serve seniors
November 1, 2016
We know that finding and selecting trustworthy, quality companies and services for you or a loved one can be a daunting task. Here are some things to consider, when looking for the right business to meet your needs. To begin, asking friends, family and neighbors is always the best first step in selecting a company with a proven track record. Take advantage of social media like Facebook to solicit recommendations from friends and family. Cast a wide net to get as many recommendations that you can. Both positive and negative feedback is helpful. When you have a list of two or three good options, take into account how long the company has been in business and how long they have been providing the specific need you are looking for. Be sure to make note whether the business is part of a trade association or organization. If the company is part of an association, you may be able to contact the association and inquire if the company is still in good standing. If possible, ask the company for references of some recent clients. Feedback from recent clients can provide you with some useful information, though it may all be positive glowing reviews, their experience with the company may shed some light on some operating practices or company policies that can help you in your decision.
