Top Websites & Blogs For Older Adults

There are a plethora of blogs and websites that focus on aging in general and baby boomers in particular. Here are some to explore and get you started in broadening your information base. Be discerning in your reading material. As with everything else on the web, much of the information out in the cybersphere is “buyer beware” and/or “reader beware”.

Senior Planet

Senior Planet is a ezine with varied, interesting articles written by a broad base of contributors. Visit their site and sign up for regular issues that will come to your email. https://www.facebook.com/seniorplanet/?eid=ARBl8tUw90W1qfg1oFXVuAOGUaazEzZ_2gaRoypx0YhWl6fxqcr0KhAEjhlYKJXCVsCckwF5xLjZUpx7

Boomer Café

Boomer Café is arguably the “oldest” online ezine exclusively about Baby boomer, emphasizing the full meaning of their label as the “Me Generation”. https://www.boomercafe.com/

The New Old Age:

The “new” old age means that people are living longer than ever before. As this New York Times blog states: “Adults over age 80 are the fastest growing segment of the population; most will spend years dependent on others for the most basic needs. That burden falls to their baby boomer children.” The intersection of baby boomer children and their senior parents is where “The New Old Age” meets. So you’ll not only find information on senior living, you’ll also find out how ways to care for your aging parents. http://newoldage.blogs.nytimes.com/


Better Health:

Better Health is a repository of articles, videos and audio Podcasts on health topics. You’ll find interviews with healthcare professionals, book reviews, health tips, news and more. The dozens of blog contributors are medical professionals, journalists, healthcare administrators and other specialists. http://www.getbetterhealth.com/
