Network launched as a resource for senior citizens
September 14, 2010
The Lutheron Homes of Michigan have launched the Aging Enriched Network, an initiative that provides resources for baby boomers and senior citizens who need answers to practical questions about age-specific issues, according to ConnectedMichigan.com.
LiveAgingEnriched.org is dedicated to offering information, expertise and referrals to older adults for no cost, in an attempt to enrich their lives spiritually, medically, and socially.
There will be also be a hotline for caregivers and seniors, so that they can speak one-on-one with aging experts. Network representatives will be on the line and respond to each caller with helpful answers.
Another goal of the Aging Enriched Network will be to help seniors with safe transitions from home to hospital, helping them age in place and acquire the care that they need.
This is likely to be a useful service for seniors who live alone. Installing a medical alert system in a home can also help seniors quickly obtain the assistance that they may require in the case of an emergency, providing them with a reliable method of contacting neighbors, friends or doctors.
