The best websites for seniors
The Internet has been around for quite some time, but not many seniors have access to it for one reason or another. The fact is that most of them are not computer literate enough, and some hesitate to work with the computer out of sheer naivety. Anyway, we really need to encourage older people to take advantage of broadband. It can offer many things that are useful for adults in many ways.
Here are some websites for senior citizens that could be of great help to our elderly brothers:
1. General information
There is a great site maintained by the American Association of Retired Persons. It provides seniors with topics on health, finances, family, leisure, food, politics and even gaming. The site also offers information on discounts provided to seniors by travel, insurance or service companies. Apart from them, the site is also a virtual community where seniors can interact with each other. As a senior citizen, you just need to create your own profile and register on the site to access the services of the site. Use the association’s acronym (+.org) to access the site.
2. Management of aging
Aoa.gov is the US government website you can go to for information on managing aging. It provides seniors with information about their health and human service needs, health care rights, and senior activities.
3. Health, relationships and spirituality
A website where you can find hundreds of inspirational articles about life in retirement is called retirementlifematters.com.
4. Beauty, fashion, style, entertainment and technology
Who said older people are no longer interested in beauty, fashion and technology? Seniorslovetoknow.com is living proof that seniors are still very relevant when it comes to beauty and technology topics. It also features interviews with experts on specific topics.
