Looking for a money ID device, but don’t know where to find one? After searching Fred’s Head, you might also want to visit Network of Care.
Network of Care is a web site which bills itself as “a comprehensive, Internet-based community resource for the elderly and people with disabilities, as well as their caregivers and service providers.” Network of Care is sponsored by a California Department of Aging innovation grant in partnership with the Alameda County Department of Aging and Adult Services.
The site offers helpful information about diseases, assistive devices and caregiving, as well as daily news from around the world concerning aging and disabilities. Californians can use special site features to send messages to their legislators to affect government policy change. There is also a bill tracker feature which lets visitors keep track of disability-rights legislation. Other site features include: government links, a private online community for service Providers, Caregiver support, a library containing information about diseases and conditions, and resource locator.
While the bulk of these services are designed to provide information about aging and age-related issues to residents of Alameda County, California, visitors from other locales will still find much on the site that is helpful. One of these areas is the site’s database of Blind and Low Vision-related product information.
The data is compiled into categories ranging from Health Care to Reading, and Computers to Tools. Every record contains a short description of the product, the cost (when available) and contact info for those wishing to learn more. Not sure of the name of the product you need? No problem. The site lets you search for records by product/function, keyword, company/manufacturer and brand name.
