The Best Blogs for Seniors – Best Senior Living and Elderly Care Blogs

When seeking advice about senior care, assisted living, healthcare or caregiving, the web is full of information.  Many sites are designed by professional experts and those who are experts of circumstance.  These blogs span the realm of senior oriented material, from the tech savvy senior to the caregiver raising their children while caring for their parents.

So, we put together a list of some of the best elder care blogs out there written for the common good: to provide information to make aging a little less frightening.  We tried to offer a brief description and a sampling of three good posts from each blog so people can get a quick feel for the content. We’d like to have this be a “living” resource that’s consistently updated over time.  If we missed your blog or one worthy of being included, please let us know.

And, finally, we’ve created what we think is a very useful tool for anyone looking for information about elderly care or senior living: a custom search engine that will only return content from this list of sources. This is valuable because you’ll be able to look up information on senior living, and know that you’re weeding out any low-quality sources of information and only getting information back from these high quality resources. Simply type in any topic or question below, just as you would if you went to to search for something:


And of course if we didn’t miss your blog, please feel free to grab any of the badges below to display on your site by simply copying the code below and pasting it onto your Website!
