Gamble’s sites on “Senior Solutions,” www.todaysseniors.com and www.aging-parents-and-elder-care.com, will give you a place to start researching nearly any elder issue you have. Caregivers need to be aware of general senior issues because they need to know what help is available for their elders, even before their elders need actual caregiving. In learning about these general issues, we are led to the more specific help our senior may need.
Eldercare 101, on the “aging parents” site, is packed with well-arranged information to help a caregiver answer questions they didn’t even know they had until they saw the answer. It helps raise issues so that caregivers can become proactive in caregiving, rather than just reacting to crisis situations.
Sites such as www.ouralzheimers.com, other Alzheimer’s sites, specific health sites such as those offered by Choice Media, and sites like Gamble’s are a gift of the Internet. Sometimes the choices seem overwhelming, so knowing that comprehensive sites are available can be comforting and make a caregiver’s job easier. Give Gamble’s sites a visit. There’s a ton of information at your fingertips.
