An assisted living and Alzheimer's care service provider recently launched a website that offers seniors the opportunity to go online and ask experts questions pertaining to eldercare for free.
Ask the Expert also allows individuals who are looking after older persons to take advantage of its services. Dr Vicki Rackner is an expert in doctor-patient relations and caregiver stress and will answer questions posed on the site within 24 hours of their posting.
"Caring for a loved one can be an incredibly rewarding experience, though it can also be an extremely challenging task without qualified resources to help guide your decision making," said Granger Cobb, the president of the service provider.
"By creating Ask the Expert, we hope to connect those seeking answers or guidance with professionals who specialize in eldercare and caregiver issues."
Ask the Expert is meant to answer questions regarding issues like Medicare and insurance and can provide guidance to people who are looking for the best eldercare services for a loved one or for themselves. The government says Medicare costs about $100 per month.
"We are pleased to have partnered with such seasoned professionals and look forward to working together to provide a valuable resource for seniors and their caregivers in need," added Cobb.
