Senior Resources

While not easily categorized, it seems there are some Senior Resources that should be available to all as they continue “healthy aging”

  • Assistance in Making Quality of Life Better for Seniors, including Caregivers – SEE BELOW

National Institute on Aging – materials on key topics. And, they’re FREE to print or have mailed to you! Order by calling too (800-222-2225)

“Our Family, Our Way is a communication and care coordination process developed by Miami University’s Scripps Gerontology Center to help caregiving families think and talk about caregiving.” Click HERE for details

ElderCare Locator – find help in your community by entering your zip code OR city and state

HOUSING / ASSISTED LIVING

  • CarePatrol assists when locating senior housing (independent living, assisted living, nursing home, …) Think of them as real estate agents for you, with expertise in government and other legal paperwork/logistics. They also sometimes know of small providers that are available.
    • One of their agents, Anthony Coleman, was a huge help for us in the NE Ohio area (thanks Anthony!)
    • In the Cincinnati area Aletha Stewart 513-317-3591 is a wonderful CarePatrol resource
  • SeniorCare.com – includes Medicare ratings for each facility (HERE is an example for a top-rated place in SE Cinci – Atlantes). [HINT: After doing a search, look for the “No thanks. Just show me the facilities >” so you can avoid the marketing staff early on…]
  • AssistedLiving.org provides resources and information plus provides some Ohio location possibilities (though far from complete in the Cinci area)
  • Some SE Cincinnati locations that individuals, CarePatrol or others may consider include (people to share perspective are listed in parentheses)
