Interactive Web Site Provides Resources So Seniors May Age in Place
Date:3/23/2010

OOLTEWAH, Tenn., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Live-At-Home.com, a free Web site designed to assist seniors with aging at home, announced this week a recent expansion of its site's resources and content.

Live-At-Home.com places an emphasis on health care and related issues of aging in place. Practical information is provided in an easy-to-use format and experts are available to answer individual questions.  

"Many people can avoid nursing home stays using the safety measures presented on Live-At-Home.com," says Richard Brame, founder of Live-At-Home.com, LLC. "Nursing homes should be a last resort. If a nursing home stay is needed for post-surgery rehabilitation most people should be able to return to their homes after that."

Brame has more than 30 years of experience in the long-term care field and the idea for expansion came naturally when friends and families continually sought his expertise.

Beyond safety issues, the Baby Boomer generation is not only making decisions for their parents, but for themselves as well. Live-At-Home.com makes it easy to quickly reference information. For example, it helps people to navigate the complexities of hospital and medical billing.  

One area of the Web site is devoted to insurance and explains Medicare Part A, B and D in detail. Most people don't know that Medicare Part B is means (income) tested. Therefore, many make the wrong decision when purchasing Part B.  

Other complicated or poorly understood areas that are addressed include: The Veteran's Administration and what they can do; a Medicaid primer; definition of Medigap; information on when to start Social Security benefits; home health resources and how to use them; and long-term care insurance information.    

There is also a special section on medications. This section addresses how to avoid negative drug interactions and provides resources for discounted and low-cost prescriptions. Information about the growing trend to administer intravenous medications at home is also offered.    

Live-At-Home.com provides advice on how to choose a skilled nursing facility.  This includes a decision tree to help people determine whether it is needed or not. It reveals best policies to consider and reviews Life Care contracts.

One of the resources first offered on this site six years ago still exists – a Home Safety Checklist – to prevent injuries that often lead to hospitalization and subsequently, a stay in a nursing home. The checklist offers guidance for dealing with medications, meals, driving, preventing falls and more.
