Tuesday, August 21, 2007 Free Help Finding Caregivers

Families can find free assistance in locating caregivers from the site for Eldercarelink. They can fill out an assessment to pinpoint details of services needed and Eldercarelink will match them with agencies, homes or individuals who can meet those needs.

Caregiver agencies, nursing homes and independent caregivers available for hire can list with them.

Those who are seeking assistance can fill out an assessment form to pinpoint what type of services are needed. Agencies, homes and caregivers can fill out a form to help eldercarelink match them up with those seeking assistance.

If you haven't hire a caregiver or an agency before then looking through the elderlink pages can help you start to get an overview of home care and facility options. There is a wide range of assistance in home care from hourly shifts to rows of 24 hour shifts.

In facilities there is a range from independent living, where seniors might share a central dining room, services, and activities, to skilled nursing care where licensed care is available around the clock.
