Discussion and Reviews

This is one of a class of services including Golden Reviews, and OpenPlacement. All are designed to help people find the right living option for their aging family member who needs help, most likely in the form of a move to some type of residential facility.

There is certainly a big need for this. A bit unclear who pays in this case. The website includes a place where you can register to get some advice from a family advisor. Perhaps you pay for this?

Three stars because this aspect is a bit vague. But the need is great.

In my experience, it becomes important to understand whether these sites are working for the senior or for the residential care providers. if you are not careful subtle conflicts of interest can make the results suboptimal.

If anyone has tried this out, please post your experiences.

This resource lists elder care providers across the country. It has even more care providers than  Enter your city and state, and it provides a list.

It includes ratings for the providers, but most are not yet rated.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
