Best websites for families seeking elder care

These three sites provide a range of articles on caring for the elderly.

AARP.org defines different types of home care, provides advisory videos, and explains how to interview potential aides. Its Caregiving Checklist includes questions to ask about licensing, costs, and quality of services. A caregiver forum and blog lets users share personal advice.

Caregiver.org is the website of the Family Caregiver Alliance. Its Family Care Navigator maps national and local services available in each state. The site also features articles on such issues as caring for people with dementia, using assistive technology, and legal planning for end-of-life care.

Metlife.com/mmi/publications/since-you-care-guides is a collection of senior care booklets published by MetLife’s Mature Market Institute. These 10- to 30-page “Since You Care” guides cover topics such as Medicare and Medicaid programs for home aides, long-distance caregiving, and prevention of elder abuse.
