We were pleased to welcome several new attendees to our live #ElderCareChat forum this week, along with our regulars, many of whom have been active members since the Twitter chat was founded in 2010.
The following questions took us through the hour:
Q1. What comes to mind when you hear “home care?”
Q2: What myths are out there about this care option?
Q3: In your experiences with this care option (personal/professional), what areas need improvement?
Q4: In your experiences with this care option, what approaches/philosophies/services are well-developed and successful?
Q5: What should the general public know about home care & how can we better educate consumers on choosing a quality provider?
Q6: What are the priority issues that consumers should advocate for regarding home care?
Q7: What challenges does the industry face both now and in the future?
Check out these highlights:

Don’t miss our next chat: Wednesday, September 4th at 1pm ET. Please note that we meet only on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. Anyone who is interested in and passionate about eldercare issues can join our chat, anytime. Prior participation is not required, nor is there a need to stay for the full hour.
If the “real-time” frame doesn’t sync with your schedule, or if you feel that your question or idea requires well beyond 140 characters, start a discussion thread on our LinkedIn page or use the #eldercarechat hashtag. The LinkedIn group is also a great place to continue previous discussions, connect with those who share similar interests, or talk about the services that you, or the company you represent, have to offer.
