Twitter tweets may be limited to only 140 characters each, but for the baby boomer or senior citizen caring for elderly parents it's amazing what interesting news and resources can be communicated in such short little messages. Especially on the Wednesdays when many of us gather together for #ElderCareChat to share tips, resources, and encouragement to others who are also involved in eldercare – whether caring for senior parents, working in a caregiving facility, or advising caregiving families.
Last week's session included these great links:
- Walk Away Your Worries! by Shelley Webb
- 10 Ways to Deal With Caregiver Stress from AARP
- Taking Away the Keys – What to Do When Your Elderly Loved One May Not Be Able to Drive Anymore
Want to read more? AARP has a transcript of it at their site. It's definitely a useful resource for those of us in the Sandwich Generation. 🙂
P.S. Don't forget…
This does sound like a great resource. Haven’t been on Twitter much but I will keep my eyes open! Thanks Kaye!
Hi Paula, I am finally learning Facebook, and have my toe in Google+ but Twitter was my first “love” and I still love it. Have made some great friends there – fellow caregivers, grandparents, Christians, travelers, and so many more and have found it to be a constant source of great tips, resources, and ideas. Not to mention sweet smiles. 🙂

The social media like twiter and facebook are starting to play an important role in our lives. Baby boomers can meet friends on facebook. They can chat with friends. And they can date again. Thanks for the post.
Great points, all, Janett 🙂
