The Internet is teeming with aging resources and websites. There are federal and state resources to assist you in finding information, services, housing, and support. There are senior living and aging-related websites created specifically for the older audience. Some of these sites are terrific and loaded with interesting, helpful content about wise, healthy aging... while others may not be worth a second visit.
It is always absolutely crucial to verify that a site is trustworthy and provides accurate, reliable information. Some sites are designed to look like trustworthy resources, but are actually sales tools for companies that may not have anyone's best interests at heart. Be careful.
Of course, personal opinions about any website can be subjective. A site that appeals to one individual may seem lacking to someone else. It can take time and searching to find the sites you like best.
