Some good online resources for elderly care are the Elderly Locator and the Eldercare Directory websites. The Elderly Locator site is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - Administration on Aging, and the website offers information on topics, such as housing options, in-home care, long term care and nursing homes. Similarly, the Eldercare Directory site contains a listing of state agencies for the aging, according to Eldercare.
At the Elderly Locator site, seniors can find resources in their own communities by using the search functions for ZIP code, city and state or topic. There are a variety of topics, including healthy aging and home repair and modification, notes Elderly Locator.
The Eldercare Directory website provides links for the aging agencies in each state. At each of these state sites, there is a wealth of information on a variety of services available to seniors in their community, including respite care, nutrition assistance and senior housing assistance.
