shutterstock_143469946During Wednesday’s live discussion, 69 new and returning participants brainstormed solutions for solving the financial conundrums of caregiving, from making home modifications an affordable, viable option to practical tools for managing an ever-changing and often burgeoning caregiving budget.

Check out these highlights (with discussion questions included):


Review the wealth of resources, insights and ideas shared here, via the full chat transcript (thanks to @ctffox of The Fox Group for connecting us to this invaluable service). Analytics are available too; click here to see who attended.

We now offer a “landing page” on our blog with information about the upcoming chat, including a tentative list of questions. Refer to this page on our blog for the latest.

Our next chat will be held on Wednesday, April 1st at 1pm ET; @OurParents will lead the conversation about senior nutrition. As a reminder, we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. Anyone who is interested in and passionate about eldercare issues can join our chat, anytime. Prior participation is not required, nor is there a need to stay for the full hour.

If the “real-time” frame doesn’t sync with your schedule, or if you feel that your question or idea requires well beyond 140 characters, start a discussion thread on our LinkedIn page or use the #eldercarechat hashtag. The LinkedIn group is also a great place to continue previous discussions, connect with those who share similar interests, or talk about the services that you, or the company you represent, have to offer.

    My husband has dementia. He is on medicaid
    Do you accept medicaid and do you have a waiting list

      Hi Penny,
      Our site only offers listings for senior care communities. To determine which ones accept Medicaid or have waiting lists, you’ll have to contact the communities directly and ask. Let me know if you have further questions. Dementia is such a tough disease; my grandfather passed away in 2009 from it.
