A Great Website--And It Isn't Even Mine!

I'm not going to recommend something for you that I wouldn't use myself.

I just found one of the most useful websites (and believe me, I've researched hundreds, maybe thousands). It's FREE, EASY, and packed with valuable information.

Seniorclix is a winner. It suggests online courses; it provides information via directories and a library, and furnishes access to important forms. Take "Planning a Funeral or Memorial Service," for example. 3 pages of large readable print can supply you with a thorough decision-making form, including your choice of music, pallbearers, ushers, etc.

Retrieve national, state, and community directories for nursing facilities, home health care agencies, assisted living facilities, hospice care, geriatric care manager, Alzheimer's care facilities, and community services.

Scour a collection of articles, brochures, and websites which advise you on advance directives, computers, family caregiving, financial issues, finding urgent help, healthcare websites, helpful forms and checklists, independent living, issues near the end of life, legal topic, navigating the health care system, nursing home care, and staying healthy and active.

Arm yourself with free forms such as advance directives, patients rights, caregiver forms, healthy living, hospice care, independent and assisted living, and nursing home care, as well as a checklist for older drivers, a checklist for purchasing private insurance, selecting a private case management professional, evaluation home health care, personal information, medical bill payment records, net worth statement, questions to ask a chore service provider, and a sample living will.
