To forum or not to forum?

I am always thinking of ways to make this site more useful.   Of course, by having a free listing service for facilities has been the biggest draw for the site, and the source for most of our good feedback.

What I am learning is that there is a large caregiving community that love to communicate with each other.  After all, caregiving is an activity that demands support from other people going through the same thing.  Caregiving is something that can’t be gone at alone.

So, what I have been pondering lately is possibly putting a forum on the site.   This would be an area that people could go to to post questions or concerns about caregiving issues, or feedback about particular assisted living facilities, and have others reply with comments and feedback.

I would like to get some feedback first from people who think this might be worthwhile or not.  I don’t want to waste time on features for the site that won’t be helpful.

So, any feedback on putting a forum on the site would be most appreciated!

    I like forums. They are an excellent way to interact with people in similar situations or that have similar questions. It’s an easy access medium to help each other and discuss what is important to us. I think it would be awesome for you to add a forum.

    Thanks, Trisha. I appreciate the feedback. I agree, and I think the next step for us will be to add a forum.
