For those seeking advice, support, and information regarding caregiving for a loved one, there is CareTALK -- your ultimate modern family caregiving resource. www.CareTALK.com .
We believe caregiving, including self-care, requires PLANNING, MANAGEMENT, DECISIONS and CHOICES across a broader spectrum that is associated with healthcare -- but not limited to it. CareTALK aims to provide a roadmap for this new paradigm as the population begins a historic march toward unprecedented longevity. CareTALK will be the showcase for the products, goods, and services - those already on the market and those coming to market- to serve the explosive needs coming our way. The CareTALK franchise will feature informational columns, articles, blogs, social networking, community, video on demand, newsletters, registry, product reviews, e-commerce, and more.
CareTALK has partnered with an array of companies including Verizon, Yahoo!, Google, Kaiser, and others, who have validated the CareTALK franchise within their own universes. CareTALK also enrolls beneficiaries for the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit as you will see on the front of our website. CareTALK defines caregiving on Yahoo! as well: http://health.yahoo.com/centers/caregiving
In addition, we will be launching a video on demand series.
We don't purport to have all the answers to caregiving - but we know WHERE to get them and it is our mission to be your modern resource utility/tool for all your caregiving needs.
