NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaBrains Inc., a Naples, Florida media company, announced today's launch of http://www.agingcare.com. The website will focus on the needs of caregivers to the elderly while providing a forum for connecting caregivers with expert information, resources, products and each other. The launch coincides with National Family Caregiver Month.

Caregivers, who typically are people in middle age with families of their own and jobs to tend to, will be increasingly torn by their responsibilities. New products and services are emerging daily to assist caregivers in easing the strain of this task. But the emotional issues will continue to be pressing.
Agingcare.com will provide an empathetic community to exchange advice, ideas and emotional support. The site editors will bring together relevant information on the critical issues associated with caregiving while providing easy, direct access to answers.
