elders and caregivers resources

We want to say a big thanks to all of our customers, employees and friends for making 2015 a great year! As we look back, we’d like to share some highlights from our content and ask for your input about how we can make your 2016 even better. Our goal is to help elders and caregivers with the most useful information, tools and resources.

As we look forward to 2016, we want to know what information you feel is missing for elders and caregivers, and what “inside scoop” you’d like to know about healthcare, caregiving and more. Feel free to leave us a comment here, send us a message or comment/message us on our Facebook page!

In case you missed them, here are a few of the most popular EasyLiving topics that elders and caregivers sought out this year.

EasyLiving Services for Elders and Caregivers

Concierge services: elders and caregivers seem especially interested in our forward-thinking senior concierge services. With concierge services designed for seniors, we can offer special assistance that focuses on quality of life. Too often favorite activities like travel and cultural events go by the wayside when someone gets older or depends on caregivers for help…with concierge services these important activities can remain part of your life!

Transportation: another popular page on our site is senior transportation (and our posts detailing issues like senior driving safety and “thriving without driving“). It is essential that elders and caregivers have options for transportation post-driving. We can’t ask seniors to consider giving up driving without reasonable alternatives.

Meal preparation: nutrition is an important part of healthy living, especially for elders and caregivers. You might also want to check out our top five “not just for seniors” services to make life easier, including meal options.

Resources for Elders and Caregivers

Maybe because these topics aren’t well-covered by other sources, our summertime posts proved especially popular this year. It might not be the right time of year for them now, but make sure to bookmark Beat the Heat Activity Ideas for Elders and Summer Senior Care Precautions.

All of our eldercare career information is highly sought after also, from our caregiver jobs page to our tips on having a successful caregiving career and how to transfer your C.N.A. license.

Lastly, check out our free resources page if you need advice on specific topics.

In 2016, we resolve to…

  • answer your most frequently asked questions about senior care issues
  • help you deal with both the practical and emotional concerns of aging and caregiving
  • continue being fully transparent, and help clients/families to make informed choices about their care
  • collaborate with even more community partners to ensure elders and caregivers have the services they need
