This unique and much needed service simplifies the otherwise daunting process for families looking for assisted living and other care services, saving your clients time and money while helping to reduce the stresses associated with this transition.

we send family referrals directly to you
A important part of our training program is to suggest some of the best ways to generate and reach new customers in your area. However, there is also a growing trend for families to search online for assisted living, residential care and memory care assistance for their loved ones. Our company has invested a significant amount of money learning the best way to connect with families online in need of our services.

Should a request come from a family in your area, the information regarding the family's needs will automatically be communicated to you via email or text. In addition, details regarding the request will also populate the AutoPlace Customer Relationship Management System (CRM) System. All this happens instantaneously, allowing you to respond to requests and update the system immediately.
Those that have their business operating for at least 6 months may apply to enroll in the SCANET program.
