Attention AgingCare Members: Announcing Exciting Site Updates
In the coming months, we will be updating a number of aspects of AgingCare.com in order to improve the usability of the site for you, our members. The two most significant pending changes are a new navigation bar along the top of the site and an improved layout for our articles. These will be applied towards the end of July/beginning of August.
It will take a bit of getting used to, but it is our hope that this simplified navigation will help members and newcomers alike locate the information they are looking for. All of our articles, questions, answers, discussions, etc. are still live and intact, but they will be organized a bit differently moving forward.
For your reference, we have provided a quick guide to using the new navigation below. (NOTE: These details may not make complete sense until we publish the updates and you see them.)
-The Caregiver Forum (Support Groups and Discussions) can be found under “Ask a Question.”
-You can find information on all types of Senior Living under “Find Care.”
-To access content that was previously filed under Caregiver Support (Caregiver Burnout, Emotional Wellbeing, Tough Issues, etc.), click on “Caregiving.”
-Content that was previously filed under Elder Care (Daily Care, Health Conditions, End of Life and Hospice, etc.) can be found under “Healthy Aging.”
-The Money and Legal Section is located in a drop-down menu that appears when you click on the three lines next to our logo on the far left of the blue navigation bar.
-The search box can also be located in the drop-down menu.
To ensure you are logged into your account, look for your avatar in the top right of the navigation bar. (If you are not logged in, you will see the “LOGIN” link in that spot instead.) Once you are logged in, you can access your account information, news feed and public profile by either clicking on your avatar or using any of the “Membership” links in the drop-down menu described above. You can log out by using the link in the drop-down as well.
Improvements to our articles include larger, easier-to-read text, clearer formatting, and an accessible “share bar.”
As always, when it comes to upgrading or trying something new, there are bound to be a few kinks that will pop up and need to be ironed out. We sincerely appreciate your patience while we work through this process to make AgingCare as user-friendly and informative as possible. The entire AgingCare team has been working hard on these changes, and we are excited to finally share them with you!
We appreciate your feedback and will be actively monitoring this thread. If you have any questions or concerns about these updates, please feel free to post them below. Thank you!
