GOLDEN, Colo., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Aging and health care expert, Pamela D. Wilson of The Care Navigator announces a new website to educate children with aging parents, family caregivers and older adults experiencing the challenges of caregiving.
The Care Navigator website, http://www.thecarenavigator.com, features free information, memberships, newsletters, a blog and timely information on aging and health care topics. Information is also available for corporations with employees struggling to balance work and family caregiving roles. Visitors can request a personal consultation.
The website features a free introductory newsletter trial through a sign up box to allow visitors to the site to review information and articles that are available by subscription on a regular monthly basis. Examples of article titles include The Family Dynamics of Caregiving, Aging Baby Boomers and the Next Financial Crises, and Remaining Mentally and Physically Fit as We Age.
Many individuals find the role of caregiver arises unexpectedly and results in crises, lifestyle changes and financial hardship due to a lack of planning and education. Middle age adults today find themselves caring not only for their children but also their parents; a large percentage of these adults already have their own health issues. With the first baby boomer turning 65 in 2011, the issue of caregiving will have a long lasting impact on society, and without education and planning many individuals will be unprepared personally and financially to care for themselves and for other family members.
The website also focuses on the importance of maintaining family relationships throughout life and has a special feature allowing visitors to send a free by mail greeting card to family and friends. These relationships are extremely important especially in times of crises and it is common for individuals needing assistance later in life to find themselves alone and without help.
Another feature allows visitors to plan for unexpected events by learning about an affordable legal plan that assists in preparing a will and health care directives in addition to the ability to access an attorney for many other day to day needs.
The website features a wide range of information and advice for individuals at all stages of caregiving.
Pamela D. Wilson, CSA, MS, BS/BA provides education, service coordination, advocacy and long term care planning for individuals facing the challenges of caregiving through her company The Care Navigator. She may be reached at (303) 205-7877 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
