Some of us are old enough to remember Pat Benatar strutting and kicking as she belted out the lyrics to “Hit me with your best shot”. At age 27 this classically trained vocalist had already had one hit album before the song that defined Pat as a rocker that knew where she wanted to go.

But if you are responsible for the senior care of someone close, where do you go for information?

Certainly the internet is a popular choice but if you don’t know where to look, or how to evaluate and process the information you are no better off than when you started your elder care search.

Fortunately the people at Minute Women have put together a list of 50 Best Senior Caregiving Tools you can find online. On one single page you find over 50 links devoted to senior. The list is divided into 10 different sections, making it easy to find the answers you seek.

Some of the links go to government websites while others are to pages that deal with elder care issues and resources. You will also find forums at the bottom of the page that can guide you in your senior care search.

Whether you are seeking general information on topics like long term care or hospice information, or sources relevant to your needs in Georgia, we believe this is a page you should bookmark for future reference.

And here is another tip you can use.

Medicare supplement plan F is the most heavily promoted Medigap plan in Georgia. It is also overpriced in our opinion. Blue Cross recently increased prices for their Medicare supplement plans. So did a well known mutual company, but they only increased rates for EXISTING policyholders. New applicants got a discounted rate.

AARP will probably follow suit with an increase in April, which is the time of year when they typically raise rates.

At Georgia Medicare Plans we usually help our clients save $450 over their current Medigap plan with no loss in benefits. Why not shop and compare GA Medigap quotes now?
