Interesting news and resources for boomers and seniors from SeniorHomes.com this week. You know that little badge on the right that used to say SandwichINK was a nominee for their Best of The Web 2011?
As I wrote earlier, I was also a judge for this great resource for all of us caring for the elderly parents in our families (they had me judging sites in a different category from my own 🙂 ). Well, the judging is done, the votes are tallied, and the results have been announced by SeniorHomes. The 2011 SeniorHomes.com Best of the Web resources for senior care are:
- Best Senior Living Blog: The New York Times: Caring and Coping
- Best Caregiver Resource: The Alzheimer’s Association
- Best Senior Living Provider Website: Emeritus Senior Living
- Best Government Resource: the Medicare.gov website
- Best Senior Living Newsletter: the AARP Bulletin
- Best Industry Blog or Website: MetLife Mature Market Institute
- Best Senior Living Industry Newsletter: the Long-Term Living Weekly e-Newsletter
Several of these sites are old favorites of mine, including the Alzheimers Association and Medicare.gov, while a few are new to me. All are definitely excellent sites to bookmark, as are the entire list of finalists, which SandwichINK is blessed to be on, and, indeed, all the nominees. You can find the full lists for each category by clicking on the links in the list above.
It's been a very interesting few weeks working on this project, judging the groups they assigned me, and learning about so many valuable resources online for those of us in the Sandwich Generation, dealing with the various issues of caring for the elderly parents and other relatives in our families. I'm going to be spending more time over the next few weeks visiting all the sites, bookmarking the ones applicable to myself and to SandwichINK, and sharing with you some of the interesting "gold nuggets" I find along the way. Mega thanks, again, to SeniorHomes.com for such a practical and helpful resource!
This has certainly been a very useful "Christmas present" for those involved in helping their beloved aging seniors. Definitely good news for all of us boomers and seniors!
