Other Blogs of Interest: 10 Websites for Elders


Many of us think of the internet as a young person’s tool, but that is far from the truth. There are plenty of websites available for boomers who are looking to connect with others or read about subjects that interest us. I thought it might be nice to showcase some of these blogs so you can add them to your bookmarks.

Here are a few that I’ve stumbled across.

  1. The Sharp Seniors blog focuses on issues surrounding housing decisions for elder Americans. They discuss assisted living, nursing homes, and communities. It looks like it has a lot of great resources and conversations about the options as we age so check it out.
  2. If you don’t want to be stationary as you enjoy your elder years, look at the Baby Boomers Traveling blog. Features include travel tips, photo essays, and stories from ex-pats.
  3. For anything related to health, fitness and retirement have a look at Impowerage.com. This site has a number of resources for health and wellness, lifestyle, and retirement issues.
  4. The Growing Bolder network has a number of resources for those who don’t want their age to define them. The blog features personal stories from members of the community.
  5. Even though it hasn’t been updated since 2013, Snappy Seniors is a fun, irreverent, and thoughtful personal blog with accessible archives. This is a good one to read just to enjoy it.
  6. If you want to live your life to the fullest after the age of 60, Savoring Your Sixties is a great blog with real suggestions and resources that you can follow.
  7. As we age, sometimes caregiving is on our minds. We may be responsible for a parents or a spouse. Here is a great resource simply called Caregiving.com.
  8. New Old Age is a New York Times blog which is beautifully written and should end up on your reading list. The writers tackle tough topics including sex as we age and more.
  9. For seniors not wanting to take retirement lying down, Retired Brains is a job search resource which can help you find jobs, tweak your resume, and connect with like-minded people. The blog offers helpful job search tips.
  10. Grief Healing is a resource for anyone who is dealing with loss in their lives. It can give you an opportunity to connect with others and see that you’re not alone.

I wanted to note that there are a lot of blogs I’ve left off this list, including several I’ve written about before. There are so many options that it feels impossible to cover them all in one blog post.

I would also love to hear from you. What blogs do you enjoy the most? Share your answers in the comments or join the conversation on our Facebook page!
