AARP: Internet Resources on Aging
AARP's Internet Resources on Aging is a database of more than 900 internet
resources for people age 50+.
The web sites are chosen for their usefulness for older adults and their families, as well as for researchers, students, and professionals in the field of aging.
Sites are listed by categories such as:
• aging organizations
• caregiving, supportive services, and assistive devices
• death and dying
• employment, finances, and retirement
• family, personal relationships, and online community
• government, legislation, and public policy
• health and well-being
• housing and long-term care
• law and legal issues
• leisure, learning, and personal growth
• medicaid, medicare, and social security
• older drivers and transportation
• research and reference
• state and local resources
Most of the sites are produced by government agencies or nonprofit organizations. Commercial sites are not included unless they contain a substantial amount of free information that is interesting to a wide spectrum of older adults. AARP reviews entries every 6 months, updating their descriptions and web addresses as needed.
AARP does not recommend or endorse any of the listed web sites, and limits the number of listed sites in order to keep their database current and accurate. Individuals or organizations may contact AARP to recommend a site.
