Publication Date: July 2007
Article discusses the Senior Housing Finder, which is a national online dementia-specific senior housing database sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association and SNAPforSeniors. The Senior Housing Finder is an extension of the Alzheimer's Association CareFinder. People with dementia, family members, and health care professionals can use CareFinder to identify care options. The Senior Housing Finder will provide innovative search tools that allow users to locate professional and residential care options that match the individual’s most appropriate level of care. The database functions much like a regular search engine, as it allows users to search by various geographic criteria, name of residence, housing type, availability status, and license type. An advanced search option is also be available, which allows users to screen for desired lifestyle amenities and care services, including the specific level of dementia care offered. The Senior Housing Finder can be accessed directly through Alzheimer’s Association homepage (http://www.alz.org).
