The American Association of Homes and Services has launched a new online consumer hub where consumers can learn about healthy aging, retirement planning, caregiving and other services they may need as they—or someone they love—ages.
The consumer section features profiles of seniors, up-to-date research and listervs. Providers can find resources more appropriate for them, such as podcasts, listservs, videos and information about the consumers they are trying to reach, as well as interactive polls and surveys.
Consumers and providers can use the hub to collaborate and problem solve with each other. With the hub's listserv, consumers can ask providers for advice on specific problems. Providers and consumers can also interact by checking the site's “partnerships and possibilities” box, which offers resources detailing opportunities that allow them to work together.
