Do you constantly find yourself looking for reliable caregiver resources that will help you become excellent?
In today’s post, I am listing 10 different resources you can use as references to help you on your journey.
Top 10 Online Caregiver Resources
Learn about the latest research studies on aging and care giving from the National Institute on Aging. The NIA is an arm of the National Institutes of Health.
Learn everything you need to know about Alzheimer’s Disease and information on how to care for your loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Find out if a service or test is covered under your elderly loved one’s Medicare plan by entering it on Medicare’s government regulated website.
You can also look up claims and appeals and drug coverage on their website
It would be unfair to mention all these amazing resources and leave ourselves out right?
Well there it is! We have gone to the trouble to research and write some of the best content on the internet to help you become a stellar caregiver.
If you haven’t yet, check out some of our popular posts below.
The Eldercare Locator is a government website that allows you to search for different services for your elderly loved one.
You can find information on providers for services like:
- Adult Day Care
- Home repairs and modifications (for elderly loved ones who need their homes customized to accommodate their needs)
- Food and Nutrition
- In-home services
And so much more.
You can search for what you need by zip code or the name of your city.
The caregiver journey can be lonely.
Sometimes you just want to be able to find a community of people who understand what you’re going through. Perhaps some of these people are going through a similar life phase or have to care for an elderly loved one with dementia like you have to.
This is where forums become an excellent caregiver resource.
Forums are also a good resource when it comes to finding out information on how to carry out certain processes.
Some of the most active caregiver forums out there are:
Looking for a reliable source for long-term care and assisted care facilities?
The first place I suggest is Google.
Simply place the name of the facility in the search bar and in the top right hand corner you will see Google Reviews.
Read these reviews with a bit of reserve because most of the time people will post a review when they have had an unsatisfactory experience versus a good one.
Apart from looking for reviews on Google, you can check OurParents.com and APlaceForMom.com for reviews as well.
From saving and investing, to movie recommendations to spotlights on seniors who are simply rocking the elder thing, the AARP website is a rich resource for caregivers and seniors alike.
If you are a user and fan of Reddit, the Elder Care subreddit is worth checking out.
All the resources on this list should keep you going and well-educated for years to come!
