Senior care information?
Hi Care.com Community,
Does anyone have trusted online sites/resources to recommend for learning more about senior care options and cost? I'm just getting started in this process and am getting frustrated by the fragmented options out there.
Thank you all in advance :)
I've tried AgingCare.com and they were pretty helpful.
When hiring private care the best option in my opinion is CARE.COM. Some insurances help pay and link to agencies, but the time is limited and you will probably have very few options in staff that you work with.
A place for mom
Care.com provides all necessary help. there is also a website called seniorhelp.org
Needs to be comprehensive, calm, patient. And need love what to do and know what to do.
"Word of mouth" in your community is another way to find out your options. Ask someone who has been there! Good luck.

$15 an hour is the minimum. Under certain circumstances it can be less but if there is some activity that would be the amount.
Yes, this site Care.com has a lot of information on almost every question or concerns you might have. You need to have time to sit down look through the site look at Profiles of people looking to be hired. enter what type of care you are looking for. This site know has everything from Senior Care, Child care to walking dogs and doing food shopping for clients. There is a lot of information like I said so take time and I'm sure your questions will be answered
Hi! It depends on what type of care your mother needs. Would you like to share a few details about your mother's needs?
Care.com; You are in the right place.
The Area of Aging Agency is a great source of Information regarding Services available in the York County Area. This is a government agency and may also be able to provide information for the surrounding area as well. I had experienced first hand with this agency with Medical care/assistance, Insurance availability/assistance, Assisted Living/Nursing Facilities information, and so much more.
Hello; It all depend on what type of senior services you're looking for. Have you tried to contact the Department for the Ageing?
Hello; Respite care is a short term relief for the caregiver that maybe taking care of a child or adult. Respite gives the caregiver a short term break from the day to day duties of taking care of an adult or a child. Respite can also be good for those who are receiving care. Hope this is helpful.
I'm not sure. I'm in the same boat and would also be interested.
The answer to your question is social media like facebook. Facebook has sales groups that you can join and advertise from. I hope this helped.
I would suggest setting up interviews with different advertised Senior care businesses, then interviewing individuals.
You also might try consulting with an experienced Social Worker.
You can call local agencies in your community who employ caregivers to obtain a quote for services. Most agencies have a variety of caregivers with different levels of expertise. Some are chore workers, others are certified nurse aides and some simply provide companionship or respite, similar to baby-sitting. Depending on the expertise and experience of the caregiver, the cost can be higher or lower.
Check with senior agencies in your area. Investigate a facility, talk to the patients and the administrator with any questions or concerns. Make sure they are licensed to practice in your state. Find out if there have been any wrong doings or citations.
When doing your research for care education, use a .org as they're based on facts. Best ones are the ones which include diagnosis for your loved ones. As, a mother of 2 special needs children I often used the website for Riley's Children Hospital as they list various links on different illnesses so you may want to use a Parkview website, American Heart Association, Dementia ( There's 170 types of dementia) just to name a few.
I opine, as an RN......senior care advocate: Assisted Living, Skilled Care, Independent Housing with come and go help and on the premises independent living
On Long Island, daytime help is available thru Day Haven,Google to find the branch in your area.....very helpful.some of my clients use it a fe days a week, while I fill in the other days and evenings.Keeps them social, out of the house and in a safe place while family attends to their day by day.
yes! There are TONS of websites offering senior care options, care giving, and tons of facilities offering information given the patient's condition.
No,Care.com is well known nationwide due to television exposure and also makes mention of background information
I can trust on line eLearning.
I have used this site and carelinx.com from someone looking for work these are the only ones I would use if your looking for a provider in Palm Harbor fl. My profile is available on both of these sites Ana P. good luck.
It happens sometime.
I am not familiar with this process.
If care is going to be paid for by the state then there would be numerous agencies that contract nurses in your area. If contracted Nursing is not paid for by your state and will be paid out of pocket local senior centers and nursing homes should have a list of appropriate caregivers in your area
Visit the Department of Aging government website for your state.
For Alzheimer's care see http://www.alzheimershomehealt...
find communities then check the reviews. Word of mouth is always good.
Please let me know what area you are in. I reccomend calling your local Area Agency on Aging.
Word of mouth is the BEST way to find a facility. Make sure you do an interview process with at least 10 applicants if you would like private duty. Bigger companies are all about the money, that's why I have opened my home care business. Health care needs to be more about the patients, and their needs and less about getting rich!
AARP or AMAC. Also, many .gov sites offer senior care information.
you can check your area or call AHCA for private home or facilities
try the health care ombudsman for your state. in NJ here is the link, https://www.nj.gov/ooie/
Not all the time
AARP, National Council on Aging,Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, Area Agencies on Aging, National Institute on aging, Meals on Wheels, Health finder. These will get you started but ask when you speak to them and get you a running list of service providers. Take care of our elders!
there's a first time for everything and we should always be willing to learn more
They are about the same in this area.
