Senior Care Corner was born nine years ago as a labor of love by Kathy and me to fill what we saw as an information gap for family caregivers of older adults.
More than 1,000 articles (well, 1,031, but who’s counting), 74 podcasts, and several videos later, everything you read, hear, and see at Senior Care Corner, other than resources we provide in articles for your information, was produced by us.
Nine years later, Senior Care Corner is still a labor of love for us and we are proud of the feedback we get from readers who have found our site helpful and has made a difference to them and their senior loved ones.
We are working on a redesign of our home page to one that implements our early vision and reason we chose the name Senior Care Corner.
When we started the site, we envisioned an intersection of sorts, with resources for family caregivers on all four corners. That was the basis for the road sign logo.
With our upcoming home page redesign, that intersection will be front and center, with three resource areas we have now, plus a new area:
- Our current Senior Care Corner information site;
- Technology Corner, our new focus area for family caregivers;
- The Shop at Senior Care Corner, which offers shopping tailored to the needs of family caregivers; and,
- The Guest Article Corner, offering articles of interest to family caregivers, written by other experts.
We are excited about the possibilities the third corner may bring and the information resources other voices can provide.
What to Expect in Guest Articles
We have long considered offering an outlet for other voices at Senior Care Corner, but have been hesitant to do so. We receive multiple requests each day from those wishing to submit articles, many from writers we don’t recognize as experts able to provide you greater insights.
Guest articles you see at Senior Care Corner will offer resources, insights, or perspectives to enhance what we have provided over the years. They will be from writers or organizations most of you will recognize and whose expertise we have verified.
We will accept and publish articles from businesses we feel offer information or solutions of value to seniors and/or family caregivers, but will not allow blatant commercials.
Guest articles will not be edited for content by us, but we will not publish anything we feel is inappropriate or does not provide value to family caregivers of older adults.
We are hopeful this fourth corner will be just as vibrant and valuable to you as the other three and thus will feature all four on our soon to be redesigned home page.
Information for Potential Guest Article Writers
We welcome proposals for guest articles to be published on Senior Care Corner and have some guidelines for those considering doing so in order to ensure all content provides value to family caregivers of older adults.
- Guest article must be appropriate for and relevant to the Senior Care Corner audience. Please review the articles on our site for insight into topics and tone.
- All articles must be unique, written specifically for Senior Care Corner, and not be published elsewhere on the web.
- Guest articles will only be accepted from individuals and organizations who are verifiable experts bringing unique expertise, resources, or insights to family caregivers.
- Please submit proposals before sending articles, as we are respectful of your time and efforts. We will not accept or read articles that are unsolicited or otherwise sent without prior discussions and agreement.
- While commercial products or services may be portrayed in an article as a solution to a problem faced by seniors and/or family caregivers, articles that are perceived as commercial in nature, in the sole judgment of Senior Care Corner, will not be published.
- Articles should be at least 500 words in length and generally no more than 1,000 words. The focus should be on effective communication of your ideas rather than length.
- Guest articles will not be edited by Senior Care Corner. However, writers will be required to revise any language that is determined to be unacceptable, for any reason, prior to publication.
Please send requests for more information and proposals for guest articles to GuestArticleEditor@SeniorCareCorner.com.
We are looking forward to bringing you even more knowledge and practical insights from Senior Care Corner for your caregiving journey.
Stay tuned for our home page redesign and publication of our initial guest articles!
