Making elder care decisions is not always an easy feat. With life expectancy continuing to lengthen, and the medical community offering advanced options for treatment and management of various conditions and diseases, more seniors than ever are able to stay at home and remain independent with the help of family caregivers and home care companions. This means that more non-medical individuals are being charged with making decisions regarding elder care. This can seem intimidating and stressful, but fortunately help is out there.
If you are providing elder care for an aging loved one, you should be aware of a new website called HealthinAging.org that was developed by the American Geriatrics Society Foundation to provide support and guidance for those who are making decisions regarding the care and well-being of aging adults. This website can be a fantastic ally in your efforts to provide the highest level of care and the best quality of life for your aging loved ones. Some decisions in elder care are not easy to make, and you should not be expected to know everything that there is to know about providing care for an aging adult. This is why this website was developed. Here you can have your questions answered at any time, and can feel more confident that you are well informed and educated regarding different issues and options available to you.
This site is not just a resource for articles or dry information. Here you are able to find blogs and answers to common questions from caring geriatric experts, recommendations for managing specific conditions, and printable worksheets and tips to help create an effective elder care plan for your aging loved one. This website is a fantastic source of information in support whether you are providing care for your aging loved one on your own or cooperating with a home care companion. Use this website to help create instruction lists and protocols that can guide a home care companion in providing your aging loved ones with the best care possible. Just knowing that this site is available can give you tremendous peace of mind. Now you know that if you are concerned about something, you have a reliable source for information and guidance.
