While the focus of my Nursing Homes Abuse Blog is on nursing home care– shocking, I know– today seniors have more options than ever when it comes to selecting a living arrangement for their individual needs and preferences.
Below, I have attempted to highlight several websites that focus on elder rights from the perspective of both professionals as well as from caregivers themselves. If nothing else, many of these websites can offer support for seniors and caregivers alike as they learn that the issues they face are not necessarily unique.
