Richard, Please be assured that we received entries from caregivers as well as patients, and representatives from both cohorts made it to the final round. As someone who has served as a caregiver (unpaid) and personal aide (paid...if $5.50/hr. qualifies as pay), I deeply appreciate the efforts of organizations like Well Spouse.

Thanks for posting this, Jason. My contribution to this important conversation always starts with this question, "How are you defining 'seniors'?" The answers I receive are remarkable for the range of ages.

I've had people tell me that seniors are people in their 60s and "older" and then go on to discuss health issues that only emerge among the very old (people in their 80s and 90s).

This is also a problem -- and I mean problem, not challenge -- when discussing social media when/if people start with the assumption that people in their 60s and 70s cannot and will not use online digital technology.

Also remarkably absent from many of these conversations are caregivers, especially family caregivers who, if not digital [...]

Good, important, and necessary post, Lee. Let the conversation being...or continue. Turns out I'll be on a Stanford MedX panel about "Communicating the experience of illness in the digital age." My role is to explain how online digital has forever changed our cultural understanding, if not expectations, about privacy and self-disclosure.

In this particular instance, I'd say that because Ms. Mandell is a public figure, she has forfeited her right to what has heretofore been considered privacy. Plus Twitter, because of it's mini-micro blogging form, fleeting nature, and audience is substantively and substantially different from FB. I'd say following someone on Twitter is not equivalent to "friending" someone on FB. The very language reveals some key differences.

Of course I have much more [...]
