Elderly Care: A Guide for Families New to Caring (based in the UK)
The guide offers lots of helpful information such as:
- Getting started on finding care, understanding different and varied care options available, as well as costs and legal considerations when planning for elderly care.
- Home modifications and assistive technologies that can improve the daily living of elderly family members.
- Support networks and charities that offer help and support for both people in need of elderly care and their families.
- Other helpful resources and tools to help family members begin to find the best possible care option for their elderly.
Caring.com (based in the US)
I work with a group of senior advocates and based on conversations with community leaders across the US, many ageing adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and care options that are available.
