Navigation Links Names Consumer Affairs Advocate, Healthcare Experts to Provide Free Educational Support for Seniors

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Believing consumer education for seniors and family members is crucial especially with today's financial crisis deepening, Inc. (, a national web site for caregivers, senior citizens, and healthcare professionals, announced today it has named a Consumer Affairs Advocate to provide educational support for viewers seeking eldercare and senior living options.

Also, unlike no other eldercare website, Silver Census is offering viewers free expert opinions to their questions by a group of well-versed healthcare professionals, guaranteed to be answered within 48 hours.

According to Christine Boyd, Silver Census' new Consumer Affairs Advocate (; 561-972-0534), "Silver Census is dedicated to providing seniors and caregivers the tools they need to make informed decisions. Finding affordable senior care facilities, or having to decide other home care alternatives can be extremely challenging. Situations are worsening as many states impose cutbacks in federally funded Medicaid waiver programs for assisted living care facilities, assistance at home and nursing homes, so preplanning is essential when a senior is in stable health," said Boyd.

Among the experts serving Silver Census' viewers is, Dr. Mark Brody, MD, a neurologist specializing in Alzheimer's disease and Stroke, and President of Brain Matters Research Inc., based in Delray Beach, Fla. "The core of Americans are aging and they should be proactive in minimizing chances of getting a disease, and planning for the future with their living options," said Dr. Brody. "People need a comprehensive resource like Silver Census that also brings together leading experts so they can get real answers to questions in understandable lay terms," he said.

With its commitment to saving consumers time and money, "Another unique feature of Silver Census is our video platform, enabling consumers to search for a community or service, watch video tours and learn more three-dimensionally about care programs and lifestyles options to determine what's a good match," said Boyd. The directory recognizes accredited care facilities, not-for-profits and government run outreach programs, providing viewers a spectrum of healthcare options. Direct contact information is provided, or Silver Census experts can coordinate care.

"Our viewers also can feel good knowing Silver Census does not participate in any placement 'move-in' fees or hidden fees," Boyd said.
