Always check with the particular agency. That way you know the exact services they offer. I’m also pretty sure you will be surprised. And it’s all because of the help available to caregiver’s.
The Internet is a wonderful invention. It compiles and centralizes information on a particular topic. Above all else, the best part is, anyone and everyone can use it. One of the best informational resources is You Tube.
You Tube is a video sharing service where users can watch, like, share and comment on the videos. Viewers are welcome to upload their own videos. This video service can be accessed on PCs, laptops, tablets and even mobile phones.
If you decide to utilize this resource simply type, CAREGIVING in their search box. Sit back and decide which one you’d like to view.
By no means am I saying any of the presenters are experts. Or that you should just blindly follow anything they say. On the contrary. Most certainly I am saying you will be amazed at what is there for the viewing.
And always remember, you are responsible for anything you do. This means Senior Outreach Ministries accepts no liability on the part of any site visitor due to our recommendation. And this is because it does not matter what you view. The mention on this page is solely for your information.
Always act responsibly. Please.
And, with that said, here is the last resource. Once again, it’s listed here because at face value it is a neutral information presenter.
The site is: Investopedia.com
Different Alarm Types
A Quick Disclaimer
Investopedia is a must read. Moreover, for seniors and any one else whom needs to keep on top of their investment and/or potential investment. Investopedia provides investment news and strategies. Subsequently they're a great resource for anyone who visits the site.
Moreover, they are full of really useful financial advice.
This by no means is the only investment advice website on the Internet. Your personal broker offers advice. Your financial planner does too. Even your insurance agent offers advice. Subsequently no surprise here, the lawyer down the street will give you his two cents too.
It is your responsibility whether or not you heed any of the advice. As is always the case.
But, and it is a big but of course, you should always be armed with up to date information for your investment(s). Especially any that you own or are interested in. This is a neutral site.
You will find more free and helpful resources. Just visit our Senior Citizens' Resources. And our Resources For Seniors pages. Above all please share these with any Caregivers you know. Certainly, don't forget your friends, family, neighbors, pets and even strangers. As well as anyone else who may need a helping hand. By the way, being a Caregiver is not mandatory for visitors to take advantage of the free resources. Resources located on this page are free to everyone. That includes resources anywhere on this site.
Or any of this site’s pages for that matter. So these resources are definitely for Caregivers. Because Caregivers know how to help those who could really use the helping.
