A Place for Mom, founded in 2000, is a privately held,[2] for-profit senior care referral service based in Seattle, Washington. A majority of the company is owned, since July 2010, by the equity capital firm Warburg Pincus.[1] Its spokesperson is former Good Morning America host, Joan Lunden.[3]

The company provides information regarding more than 20,000[4] senior housing and elder care providers to seniors and their families throughout the United States and Canada. At the same time it serves as a marketing tool for the thousands of senior housing communities and care providers to which it refers. It is the largest such service in North America and has recently laid off its Seattle-based call center in favor of outsourcing. The company also develops and markets customer relationship management (CRM) software for the senior housing industry.[5]
