2016 R.I.P.E. Senior Care Resource Guide coming soon!

Resources for seniors, caregivers and case managers

This is your personal planning assistant for senior care services. It is designed to make it easier to plan care for those 55 and older. Inside you'll find information about active lifestyles, medical care providers, tips for staying active, care at home and away from home and much more. 


We look forward to hearing your feedback so that each issue of R.I.P.E. Senior Care Resources is the most comprehensive guide of its type in South Mississippi.

This book was inspired by the annual Resources, Information, Planning for the Elderly conference and expo. The Resources Guide is intended to be an extension of the conference, which has been very successfully held for six years.


All the best,

Kearn Cherry & Dorothy Wilson
