Post "Web-Savvy Caregiving"
A local support group member forwarded me this article today on web-savvy caregiving. The article is written by the co-author of "The Web-Savvy Patient: An Insider’s Guide to Navigating the Internet When Facing Medical Crisis."

Web-Savvy Caregiving
Using the Internet to Care, Connect and Cope
By Mary Adam Thomas

Preserving Your Memory
(Published by the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation)
Summer 2011

excerpt:
“Going online is such a great way to find what you need because you don’t often have the time or availability to go out looking for help when you’re providing care to someone in the home,” says Andrew Schorr, a noted patient advocate and author of "The Web-Savvy Patient: An Insider’s Guide to Navigating the Internet When Facing Medical Crisis." Rather than allowing yourself and your loved one to become isolated, Schorr recommends using the Web to find what you need for all aspects of caregiving.
