When we create a page, or section for our site, we always think about what information we would like to see if we were researching care for one of our own family members (something that we have experienced).

We hope that we have achieved this.
There is a great deal of information here, and we highlight several trustworthy, non-commercial ways for you to further your research - starting with our video tutorial featured here.

Older American's Act of 1965.
Additionally, the NH Department of Health and Human Services offers a State Committee on Aging, which offers further information and support regarding senior issues and long-term care in New Hampshire. Intro by
