I came across a new resource called My Senior Care. It is a resource for caregivers that has two things going for it.æ
First, they have assembled and advisory panel of aging services experts who you can write to with your questions about all aspects of caregiving.
Second they have a list of housing, home care and hospice organizations that they have personally vetted to assure that they are legitimate businesses. Providers must demonstrate proof of licensing and liability insurance to be listed.ææ
Those organizations in turn have an opportunity to contribute to their listing.æ The search tool allows users to search by the specific type of care they require and the payment methods supported.æ Users can also read user reviews of each provider and call toll-free numbers to schedule a free consultation.
They also feature 500+ articles reviewed by industry experts, message boards, and user and expert authored blog.æ
MySeniorCareäó»s mission is to support families and their aging loved ones during a highly stressful time as they search for information, resources and providers of senior care. The service is completely free for families and providers and it also used by professionals in finding care for the people with whom they work. Even the National Institute on Aging has given this site their nod of approval.
