Caring.com is a website which was established in 2007 and describes themselves as the leading online destination for people who need information, support, or both as they care for aging loved ones.
How Does it Work?
According to their website, there are currently more than 40 million people in the United States who are caring for someone over the age of 50, even though they themselves have had little or no experience or training in this type of care.
Caring.com says that their goal is to help these helpers and to make their experience easier for them. To do this, they provide thousands of articles, helpful tools, a directory of your local caregiving services, and support from their community.
They promise that the content they provide comes from their team of more than 50 trusted leaders in geriatric medicine, law, finance, housing, and other key areas of healthcare and eldercare and has been both carefully researched and expert reviewed.
The advice and information they offer comes in a variety of categories and covers extensive topics. They offer information on Senior Care, with articles on Assisted Living, Nursing Homes, Continuing Care Communities, and more.
Their categories also include health related areas like In-Home Care, with articles like Meals & Nutrition, Home Care Safety, and more; Health Conditions, with articles on Alzheimer's, Broken Hips, Cancer, COPD, and more.
Finally, they also have categories on less traditional but extremely important topics like Money, with articles on Estate Planning, Medicare, Reverse Mortgages, and more; and Caregiver Wellness, with articles on Depression, Food & Fitness, Sex & Relationships, and more.
Currently, Caring.com has been financially supported by third parties who pay for advertising space and the ability to provide links on their, but Caring.com promises that they never let these companies influence the advice they provide their members.
