SUGGESTIONS?: We are continually trying to improve our offerings to you. As you know, everything on ElderCare Online is free to you. Please take a little time to e-mail us your suggestions for new services, articles, assistants and chats. Thank you to the dozens of suggestions to date!

OUR AFFILIATES: I’m sure that you have noticed the ElderCare Bookstore and ProFlowers on the website. ElderCare Online is committed to connecting you with substantial savings and convenience. We try to limit the amount of annoying clutter and spam from the web by allying with reputable e-commerce pioneers. Pay a visit to our affiliates by accessing the "Go To Connections" link on the main page. With each purchase, ElderCare Online receives a small commission that helps us stay up and running. We never collect private information and misuse it!

OUR NEWEST CONNECTION -- PROFLOWERS: Welcome ProFlowers.com to ElderCare Online. ProFlowers provides you with a fast, easy, and reliable way to buy the freshest quality cut flowers at a competitive price. Even with the shipping cost, most assortments are 30-40% below comparable retail price. We think flowers are a loving gift for your elder. They will appreciate flowers whether they live at home or in a care facility.

COMING SOON – NETGROCER: NetGrocer is truly a pioneer in e-Commerce. They deliver groceries and health and beauty aids right to your door. We’re interested in them because they can help your elder if s/he is unable to leave the house to do some shopping or if you are unable to do the shopping for them. Please bear with us while we iron out the technical aspects of linking our two sites.

TAX GUIDE OFFER: ElderCare Online is offering a special promotion for the month of January. If you purchase any book or flowers through ElderCare Online (Amazon.com or ProFlowers.com) we will send you a copy of one of Ernst & Young’s 1999 Tax Guides. We have a limited number, so the first four submissions get the books! Just send us your confirmation receipt and mailing address (and delete your credit card information to protect your privacy).

MEDICAL PLANNER ASSISTANT: Our newest software assistant is designed to help you track your medical appointments and make the most of your time with the health care provider. Use the checklists to prepare for the appointment with questions and information and the diary pages to make notes on the doctor’s instructions. This assistant will help you remember complex instructions and improve your elder’s quality of life. The Planner and Organizer are for your personal use only. Please contact us for bulk purchases or re-distribution arrangements.
