What’s the first thing you do when you are looking to buy something? Head straight for the keyboard and Google it, Facebook it, or ask your friends, relatives and coworkers for recommendations. Why? Even if it’s something we’re somewhat familiar with, we want to know what to expect, and what people are saying about that product or service.
The Internet continues to be a vast collection of information about anything you would ever want to know. Furthermore, caregivers use the web to find information on care options and resources, and to connect with other people who have had, or are dealing with, similar experiences for support.
The past several years of research results indicate that caregivers are using the Internet for information more so than any other group. Pew Internet’s latest survey shows that 8 out of 10 caregivers have access to the Web, and 90 percent of those with Internet access use it to find health information for someone other than themselves.
Are you a caregiver searching the web for a beautiful, new, caring, and premier assisted living center for a loved one? Don’t look any further; Linden Square Assisted Living Center is currently under construction at 650 Woodland Dr. E, in Saline. We are a sponsor of the UMHS Housing Bureau for Seniors annual event, Senior Living Week. Stop by the Senior Living Week Expo at the Morris Lawrence Building on Washtenaw Community College’s campus on Friday, May 10th between 8:30am – 3:00pm. Or, if you can’t make it to the Expo, we will be hosting a workshop at our new facility on Tuesday, May 14th from 10:30am – 12:00pm.
