FREE online self-guided program for those seeking Quality Elder Care
Care Compass is a web-based guide that has been proven to help elders, their families, and friends determine Needs, recognize Concerns, and understand Levels of Care. This site also includes a Directory of local Long Term Care providers, including home care agencies, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Homes. Plus, there are links to an extensive reference list of helpful organizations.
Dave Weiman founded Care Compass to inform Long Term Care consumers about best practices. During the years he served as an Ombudsman, and later as Executive Director of a coalition that focused on educating caregivers, he saw significant improvements in the manner in which elders were cared for and respected. To continue that trend, he feels it is important for those receiving care to know what is possible, what standards should be met, and to clearly express that they expect to receive nothing less.
Recently, Dave has incorporated the concepts of “Aging in Place” into the Care Compass program. Using the resources as a member of the national Village to Village Network, Care Compass is acting as both an organizing guide and as a financial agent to assist neighborhoods in creating social and support activities for those who want to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. You can learn more about the 'Village Option' HERE.
