In my opinion, our health care system has failed when a doctor fails to treat an illness that is treatable.
Most caregivers involved with home care services would be inclined to dialogue with other caregivers in an online forum or social networking site, according to a survey. Furthermore, 91% of caregivers would be likely to conduct research after receiving a provider referral by a professional source.
While 78% would rely on a physician for recommendations, caregivers ultimately make their own decisions on long-term care providers. Websites are generally considered highly credible by caregivers, and are important sources of information for engaged caregivers on sources for long-term care. (Source: 33charts.com)
