What is SeniorMatter.com

SeniorsMatter.com is an online community dedicated through our virtual platforms to enhancing the knowledge, efficiency and effectiveness of senior caregivers by providing objective information, guidance, training and the latest developments in senior caregiving.

SeniorsMatter.com is unique.We do not take advertising and we do not receive commissions or kickbacks for referrals to communities, products or services.  We believe objective information for senior caregivers, whether they are members of a senior’s family or employed by a business, is lacking. In many cases, it is difficult to discern between real information and infomercials.

The old saying that “there is no such thing as a free lunch” all too frequently applies in the senior caregiving field.  Too often senior caregivers (and seniors) are seeking education, information and guidance to allow them to make informed choices.Unfortunately, they are often presented with viewsthat are slanted because of the fee arrangements that have been made with the vendor, senior facility or other source of the information.

The articles that appear in SeniorsMatter.com are researched and written either by our editorial staff or by one of our contributing partners who has a demonstrated expertise in serving the senior community.  Our partners are CPAs, attorneys, CSAs and other professionals with education and experience in the senior caregiving market.

We believe senior caregivers have a right to objective and unbiased information to help them make better choices. It is a big responsibility to care for a senior, but accurate and objective information helps alleviate some of the stress associated with the questions that vex many caregivers. The information they receive should be unbiased and not influenced by fear, favor or profit motives.

We believe an educated, trained and compassionate senior caregiver is the best caregiver.

Who We Are

At SeniorsMatter.com we are a team working toward the goal of enhancing the knowledge, efficiency and effectiveness of senior caregivers by providing objective information, guidance, training and the latest developments in senior caregiving.

SeniorsMatter.com was conceived and started by Joy Meason Intriago, a Certified Public Accountant who has spent more than 20 years in financial accounting and built other publishing, education, training, information and certification organizations that received worldwide acclaim. Joy Intriago does not hesitate to say that she launched SeniorsMatter.com while caring for her Dad. She found very little objective and impartial information to help her answer the questions and concerns she had when she was thrust into the role of senior caregiver upon the suddendeath of her Mother. Joy was amazed and disheartened to discover the behind-the- scenes systems of “referral” paymentsthat exist in senior housing, senior product reviews and senior caregiver hiring.
