PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A local organization that advocates for the elderly has launched a website to help caregivers make decisions about elder care.

The Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly in Philadelphia or CARIE has launched a website to help caregivers.

CARIE’s executive director Diane Menio says the website uses interactive tools to provide customized resources for those making critical decisions about elder care.

“Can my mother live alone? Can I be her caregiver? What are my options in terms of long term care if I decide I can’t care for my mother?”

Menio stresses that the website won’t tell users what to do, but will offer an analysis of each situation based on the information provided.

Soon, there will be a regularly updated blog, E-Courses, and a discussion forum. The website is at caregiverGPS.org.
