MONTCLAIR, N.J., May 4 /PRNewswire/ – Give the gift of better care this Mother’s Day with Parentgiving.com, the only one-stop resource created to help caregivers, boomers and the time-starved sandwich generation provide better care for their aging parents. Launched just in time for Mother’s Day, Parentgiving.com provides caregivers with many free-of-cost resources including a Learning Center, where caregivers can access information via articles, checklists and resources and Elder Care News that includes daily news, bi-weekly newsletters and blogs. Parentgiving.com also offers fee-based Care Manager Services that provide direct dial access to professionals and an e-commerce portal called Shop Parentgiving with category-specific Giver Guides(TM) to help caregivers make educated purchasing decisions.

Bob Silver, co-founder of Parentgiving.com states, “People are living longer but not always in the best of health — particularly in their later years — and typically those who shoulder a family’s caregiving burdens are ill-prepared for the challenges of caring for their loved ones. With the launch of Parentgiving.com, we’ve built the ideal site for caregivers — a one-stop destination for the caregiving community.”

Features of the site include:

  • Caregiver Learning Center: In-depth information on elder safety, wellness and quality-of-life topics.
  • Care Manager Services: For a small fee, the 1-800-GET-CARE paid service puts users on the phone with geriatric care managers, all of whom are registered nurses or professional social workers.
  • Shop Parentgiving: Where caregivers can shop discreetly for the products and supplies that best fit their aging parents’ needs. The Parentgiving Giver Guides(TM) help caregivers make educated decisions about the purchases.
  • Blogs and Forums: Currently, site blogs include Founder’s Say and Every Day Elder Care.
  • Up-To-The-Minute-News: Visitors have access to a bi-weekly newsletter and a daily homepage newsflash.
