Share Article

Caregiver Talk is a new online resource and community for individuals who are providing care for someone they love. This free website gives caregivers easy access to the answers and support they need to make important health care decisions. By connecting people facing the same challenges, Caregiver Talk creates a community of shared experience and compassion.

The interaction that will be available on this site will help us all to know we are not alone and we can help each other through these tough times.

Caregiver Talk launched a new website (http://www.caregiver-talk.com) dedicated to serving individuals who are providing care for someone they love. The site connects caregivers at home to others facing the same challenges. In sharing their knowledge and experiences, these caregivers create a rich source of information and support for each other.

The website provides a vital service for individuals who are providing home care or are responsible for someone in a nursing home, assisted living, or residential facility. This may be an aging parent, family member, or close friend who is elderly or has a disability, chronic disease or condition, or terminal illness. Many of these caregivers sacrifice a large amount of their time, energy, and resources to provide care as well as to navigate through complicated health care decisions. Oftentimes, they find themselves facing a lifestyle change that may isolate them from others.

Caregiver Talk offers quick and easy access to the answers, resources, and support that these caregivers need. This is their space to ask questions and share their knowledge about medical conditions and symptoms, services, products, local resources and providers, Medicare/Medicaid, insurance, legal matters, etc. In addition, the site gives members an outlet to talk about their struggles, fears, triumphs, and failures. By connecting people facing the same challenges, Caregiver Talk cultivates a community where members interact with each other in meaningful exchanges---giving and receiving the answers and support they need to continue moving forward with courage, hope, and compassion.

"Caregiver Talk is dedicated to all of us who are faced with family problems or situations that require us to make a change in our lifestyle," said Jerry Amerson, the source of inspiration for the website. "Many times we all have felt that we are on our own with no support, which only leads to periods of depression and loneliness. The interaction that will be available on this site will help us all to know we are not alone and we can help each other through these tough times."

The website features a clean and easy-to-use interface to browse questions and view answers posted by members. Questions are cataloged by auto-generated tags, helping users look up popular topics. Users may also search for content by typing in a keyword. Members moderate content with voting and accepting functions, allowing them to provide direct feedback on the value of questions and answers. The result is instant access to useful and relevant information. Please visit http://www.caregiver-talk.com/about to learn more about the site.
