Additional Resources
The internet offers an abundance of additional information that is but a few clicks of the mouse away.  Just a word of caution - some of what is found out there is good and some of it is downright deceiving and misleading - either deliberately or inadvertently.  Always be particularly cautious of those websites that are advertising supported since they may have alternative motives in what they are recommending or offering.

What follows are a few suggestions where additional information on a variety of senior services and home health services can be found.*
