Top 10 Best Blogs For Senior

Ken Teegardin Written by Ken Teegardin
SeniorLiving.Org Expert on Chief Editor | Caregiver

At Seniorliving.org, we scoured the web for the “Top 10 Best Blogs for Seniors.” We selected blogs that we think provide great value to seniors whether it’s the latest breakthrough in health care, traveling, care giving, or just having a good laugh.

Best Blogs For Senior

The blogs selected are updated frequently and are generally easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for.

Note: We did not rank the blogs, and they are in no particular order or category. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

The New Old Agehttp://newoldage.blogs.nytimes.com/

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.

Better Health: http://www.getbetterhealth.com/

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. 

Though the site is not specifically focused on seniors, many of the articles can be useful for the senior set. For instance, one recent post is the “Preventative effects of aspirin.” Another is the “How is the quality of healthcare determined?”

The Intentional Caregiver: http://takingcareofthefolks.com

Shelley Webb, a former Registered Nurse and Geriatric Case Manager, says the goal of this blog is “to help calm, simplify and enrich the lives of caregivers of aging parents and loved ones.”

Shelley divides the site into categories such as “Money and Legal Issues,” “Health,” and “Caregiving Issues.”

The Roaming Boomers: http://www.theroamingboomers.com/blog

David and Carol Porter love to travel. And they love to share their experiences with the world. Their “online luxury travel magazine with an eye towards experience, adventure, learning, and exploration,” is a great way for seniors to learn about the world outside.

Even if you no longer travel, you can live vicariously through the Porters’ experiences whether it’s a ranch in California or a beach on St. Lucia.

Transition Aging Parents: http://www.transitionagingparents.com

Coach and author Dale Carter blogs about the challenges children of elderly parents face from driving with dementia to protecting your parents from “financial exploitation.” She’s been through the same experiences with her mom so her words are not only valuable, they are heartfelt.

Sign up for the free ezine “Transitioning Aging Parents.”

Naked at Our Age / Better Than I Ever Expected: http://betterthanieverexpected.blogspot.com/
Joan Price talks “out loud about senior sex!” Why not? Somebody should do it. You’ll find articles about the health benefits of sex, younger men and older women, granny sex, and so much more. 

You’ll also find interviews with experts, “product” reviews and dating advice. And you may just find things you never knew you’d be interested in.

Holly Eburne: http://hollyeburne.com/blog/
Holly Eburne, a physical therapist, talks about the challenges she faces caring for her husband who has dementia. Holly provides memory tips for caregivers and links to other memory care sites and articles.

Check out the radio interviews with Holly where she talks about dementia hope.

Inside Elder Care: http://www.insideeldercare.com
Inside Elder Care is Ryan Malone’s journey taking care of his mom who had a stroke and who has been in and out of the hospital, assisted living and nursing homes. He wants readers to benefit from his experiences with elder care and to make it a positive experience.

You’ll find articles on long-term care insurance, Medicaid planning, and many others. By sharing your email, you’ll get access to a survey called “Assisted Living Family Preparedness Report.”

Time Goes By (what it’s really like to get older): http://www.timegoesby.net/
In the words of the blog’s founder, “Time Goes By is wide-ranging blog covering social issues, work, retirement, age discrimination and ageism, politics, media, health, family, Medicare and Social Security, love and sex, entertainment, humor, grief and mortality, culture, technology and more – all as related to aging.”

The site employs a handful of bloggers including a Geriatrician. Look for features on universal healthcare, reverse mortgages, and a list of dozens of other senior blogs.

The Consumer Boomer: http://consumerboomer.com/
This father-son team blog covers advice and tips on all things financial from 401ks to comparing long-term care insurance. The site is updated often with dozens of topics. 

You’ll find categories such as long-term care, estate issues, online brokers and scams. Though the site is boomer oriented, people of all ages could benefit from reading the articles.
