I found a very interesting website today – BetterCaring.com
This site provides information and service to people who are looking for nursing / care homes for themselves, for their loved ones, or for anybody else. Care issues affect everyone at some stage in their lives. As the years go by we may all find ourselves unable to cope alone and in need of assistance. BetterCaring provides the necessary wisdom in dealing with our future and health.
There are many children (grown ups), who abandon their elderly parents intentionally or due to some unavoidable circumstances. Perhaps it is the strain and hectic modern day responsibilities that gets them strayed from the traditional ones. I feel its really sad and should not happen. Imagine a person who has lived active life, raised a family and now everyone is busy with own life. However, nowadays we have some solution to atleast arrange for some care for them. There are nursing homes and care homes that take care of elderly. In return of some fees the responsibilities will be borne by others who are the professionals in the field.
Bettercaring loves the sharing of experiences and information through their forums. The experience that others go through is very valuable to those who are finding a solution to care for there elders. Those who need long-term care can choose care at home or residential care. They even provide financial fact sheets and links to agencies that can offer financial help.
