Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
Less than two years old, GeriCareFinder, Inc., has won the 2009 Best Interactive Award for their senior care Web site, http://www.GeriCareFinder.com.
GeriCareFinder.com won the gold award for "Best Interactive Site" in the 10th annual eHealthcare Leadership award competition, topping older and more established companies like the Mayo Clinic, Microsoft and Humana, Inc. More than 200 health care organizations' websites competed for outstanding design, content and excellence, and 116 judges evaluated entries based on nearly 60 factors.
GeriCareFinder.com is a free consumer online resource for those trying to understand and select the kind of senior health care or service they need to help an aging loved one. Created as the web's first and only single search for senior care GeriCareFinder.com especially helps those who know little about the complicated elder care industry.
"As we're still building our business in many cities and senior care categories, we're proud of this honor," said Ron Kustek, President of GeriCareFinder, Inc. "We're also grateful to the service & product companies and the many senior care providers who have already partnered with us on our website."
GeriCareFinder.com organizes the senior health care world into three simply understood categories of "Care," "Advisors" and "Products & Services" so that by zip code a person can easily find the type of care they need, or someone to help with legal & financial issues, or a safety product or helpful service which makes caring for the elderly easier.
"We were mostly recognized for our proprietary My GeriCare Workspace, one of our great online tools. In My GeriCare Workspace, visitors can work alone or with friends or siblings who may live thousands of miles away. People can securely locate the best senior care provider, advisor, product or service for seniors. They can also determine retirement savings, calculate long term care needs, identify social security contributions and even save calculations in order to help plan senior care needs," Kustek said.
