SPRY Foundation - Setting Priorities for Retirement Years
CaregiverPA (2002)

CaregiverPA web site is a model program for a given state government to display state and county-specific caregiving information.

    Project Description:
    SPRY was contracted to design a web site serving individuals and caregiving professionals who need guidance and/or specific information related to caregiving matters. The site is designed to be exceptionally "user friendly" and provide detailed state- and county-specific information.

    The information from all 67 counties in Pennsylvania has now been updated and accessible on the Internet. The current activity is to develop a plan for sustainability in Pennsylvania for the third year and beyond. Currently, the team is developing an approach for a guide that will be used as a deliverable for any state to use in replicating this web site.

    State Participants:
    In May 2002, representatives from six states participated in a Master Internet Training session and a state web site development activity. The representatives are listed below.
