Printable Guide Identifies Top Online Resources for Consumers, an online directory and resource for seniors and their families searching for senior care or senior housing, has released its Best of the Web Guide 2011: The Best Websites on Aging & Eldercare. The guide is the culmination of the 2011 Best of the Web contest, which identified the top online resources in various senior living categories using an expert rating panel.

"After the Best of the Web contest ended, we found ourselves with a robust list of really incredible resources," says Chris Rodde, CEO of "Most consumers seeking information on senior care and senior housing simply don't know where to look, so we broke it down into commonly asked questions and created a tangible, usable guide for consumers. Our Best of the Web Guide takes the guesswork out of hunting down the most credible sources of information."

Consumers looking for information on Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care in general, Alzheimer's care and more can consult the Best of the Web Guide 2011 to be directed to dozens of reputable websites offering detailed information on the selected topic. Resources cited include government sites, such as the Administration on Aging, as well as lesser-known organizations, such as the Consumer Consortium on Assisted Living. Highly specialized resources, such as Dementia Hope – Tips for Caregivers and direct links to some of the top senior living providers in the country, such as Brookdale Senior Living and Emeritus Senior Living, are also included .

In an introduction to the Best of the Web 2011 Guide, Rodde says, " strives to be a comprehensive resource for seniors and their families, but we recognize that there are hundreds of quality resources out there that provide in-depth information in certain areas." Rodde emphasizes that every nomination received during the 2011 Best of the Web contest is worthy of an award, and adds, "But by relying on the expertise of our generous judging panel, we drilled down to the best of the best using a pre-determined rating system. This book will guide you to the top resources on the web today to answer the questions that are plaguing your mind."
