Elder Caregiving Site ShirleyBOARD.com Wins WebAward for Outstanding Online Community
Date:9/19/2007

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The ShirleyBOARD website, http://www.shirleyboard.com, has been recognized by the Web Marketing Association (WMA) for Outstanding Achievement in Website Development by being honored with the Online Community Standard of Excellence WebAward Designation.

ShirleyBOARD is a free online community with tools and features to help those caring for aging loved ones stay organized and communicate with one another. The site allows caregivers to centrally store important information, keep a log of daily activities for family and friends to view, and network with other caregivers for support and inspiration.

Some of the tools include: Online Journal to keep a record of caregiving activities; Photo Keeper for sharing photos; The PillBox to record prescription information, including names of medicines, dose sizes, etc; Document Keeper for uploading wills, power of attorney forms and other documents that you need to keep track of; and, Be a Peer/Find a Peer for users to search for fellow caregivers to get assistance or just connect to ask questions and share tips and stories.

ShirleyBOARD.com was developed by Mark Willaman, founder of Fisher Vista, LLC. Mr. Willaman created ShirleyBOARD to help him organize the responsibilities of caring for his aging mother. He hopes the site, named after his mother and the concept of a community bulletin board will help the growing number of Americans caring for aging family members from afar connect with each other and make their tasks easier.

"It is amazing to witness the effect ShirleyBOARD has had on the caregiver community and the WMA announcement is a testament to the power of online communities," said ShirelyBOARD.com's founder Mark Willaman. He added, "My vision for the site is the same now as it was the day we launched ShirleyBOARD -- to remain a free service to help caregivers and families stay connected and informed about their elderly loved ones."
