Septemeber 3, 2009 EldercareABC Blog Carnival


Welcome to the September 3, 2009 Eldercare Blog Carnival


Almost 22 million U.S. households care for a family member over 50 that is disabled or ill.  As the boomer generation ages, so will the number of households offering care. Thankfully, we live in a time where there are new innovations that can make this labor of love easier. blog often participates in the EldercareABC Blog Carnival and I hope you will visit there often to read reviews of many of the latest elder gadgets.

Speaking of reviews, I am presently trying out a phone that is on loan to my family from  Assistive Technology Services. The phone allows you to program in specific phone numbers, including 911 or your local emergency number and comes with a pendent. It also comes with a pendent that can be worn.  The nifty part is that it does not require a service to work.
