ATLANTA, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- WECTU, Ltd. (www.wectu.com) introduces the Eldercare Answerman who guides senior citizens and family caregivers with his blogs, podcasts and FAQs that offer money saving suggestions and straightforward solutions to complex eldercare situations. The answerman's eldercare content provides targeted information that has been tailored to the needs of family caregivers and is written in a straightforward style that is easily understood by all.

Currently there are over 44 million people acting as family caregivers. On average, they dedicate over 20 hours per week on family care. Of this group 60% are women who may work up to 20 hours a week and, therefore, feel the additional stress of caregiving on their personal lives and at work. WECTU.com hosts the Eldercare Answerman as a single information source that relieves the pressure on these family caregivers by reducing the time necessary for them to find answers to their eldercare questions. This approach helps caregivers reduce the stress of their caregiving activity while allowing more time for personal and business activities.
Dr. Douglas Strouse, an industrial psychologist and president of the Baltimore chapter of the CEO club, said "My wife and her sister are currently spending at least 25 hours a week providing caregiving functions for their mother. The WECTU.com website and the Eldercare Answerman have been invaluable in providing excellent eldercare information and vetted service providers which have been so valuable in solving the complex caregiving issues faced by our family."
Marlene Bogo, whose father was recently in a long-term care facility, has relied on critical information provided by the Eldercare Answerman while dealing with her father's vexing long-term care issues. She said "without WECTU.com I would have been overwhelmed. I was able to gain the knowledge I needed to make critical decisions when hiring some of the vetted service providers found on the WECTU site. WECTU.com served as a one stop solution for all of my families' eldercare needs."
