Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
As a long-term care provider since 1985, Friends Life Care is excited to launch VigR eMeetinghouse, an interactive and content rich social web experience. The addition of eMeetinghouse to Friends Life Care's proprietary VigR program will help participating clients (called members) improve and extend their mental and physical health and resilience. The eMeetinghouse website was designed to provide Friends Life Care members with access to valuable health, wellness, and medical resources. It also offers a vibrant social networking community. In a secure, password-protected environment, Friends Life Care members can create a personal profile, blog, participate in discussion forums, chat online, join special interest groups and more. Members of the general public who may be researching solutions for long-term care can also get a limited view of eMeetinghouse.
The online VigR Health Library provides a searchable index of more than 7,000 topics of health related issues. A medical panel of highly credentialed experts reviews all of the content featured in the library before it is published. Users can search for medical conditions from A to Z using checklists to manage their health, find valuable fitness and nutrition tips, and discover countless interactive tools and resources to potentially help them live better and longer.
Engagement in social media may be a new adventure for many Friends Life Care members, where the average new member age is currently 67. The organization plans to encourage its members to reach out and interact with other members by chatting online, participating in a group or discussion forum, or leaving comments on a blog that they enjoyed reading. “Studies show that social affiliation plays an integral role in longevity. VigR eMeetinghouse further expands our commitment to support the vitality of our members. We hope they will learn from other’s experiences, suggest new topics for discussion, and possibly create a blog of their own.” said Carol Barbour, President of Friends Life Care.
“Our members share a strong bond; when they join Friends Life Care, they secure a plan for their long-term care. They gain peace of mind by protecting their financial security and independence. They probably have a lot more in common...they just don't know it yet! We hope that they will connect with each other in this robust virtual community" said Amy Josef, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Friends Life Care.
