Meridian At Home And Caring.com Partner To Provide Comprehensive Eldercare Information For Community

The number of caregivers in the U.S. is expected to grow steadily over the next few years, as the 79 million Baby Boomers assume the responsibility of caring for their aging or ailing parents who have Alzheimer's, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or other disabling conditions.

Meridian at Home, a not-for-profit in-home care organization, recognizes the unique challenges caregivers face and therefore announces a new source of support for those caring for aging parents though its affiliation with Caring.com. This service is a web resource with a unique blend of real world experience and expert information to provide caregivers the insight to make informed decisions about a parent's care. Coupled with the information on MeridianAtHome.com, the content provides original "how to" guides, time saving information, access to experts, helpful resources, and a community of people in caring situations.

"We are excited about our partnership with Caring.com. Their expertise in elder care support will enable Meridian At Home to bring additional user-friendly resource to the communities we serve," said Meridian Health Corporate Director and industry expert on technology for aging seniors, Sandra Elliott. "Many people may not know where to turn for support but our affiliation with Caring.com enables us to bring experts in caring for elders to our local community. Their content is geared toward the most difficult topics that have been researched and managed by people helping their parents including healthcare, financial, legal, housing, and life issues."

Caring.com can be accessed on the Meridian At Home website at www.meridianathome.com/caring.
