for Wednesday, November 26, 2003 - Online news headline linking services
are welcome to link to this story
The web site is organized by health topic and currently includes information on Alzheimer's Disease, Caring for Someone with Alzheimer's, and Exercise for Older Adults. Within each topic there are sections containing general background information, open-captioned videos, short quizzes, and frequently asked questions (FAQs). Other health topics of interest to older adults will be added in the future.
This web site grew out of NIA's research on older adults, cognitive aging, and computer usage. The research showed that, while older adults do experience gradual declines in cognitive abilities as a part of the normal aging process, they can successfully use computers if the online information is provided in an age-appropriate manner.
Some of the web site's senior-friendly
features include large print and short, easy-to-read segments of information.
Older users will find it easy to move from one place to another on the
web site without feeling "lost" or overwhelmed. Also, the material on the
site is presented in a way that increases the likelihood it will be retained
in memory. NIHSeniorHealth.gov
makes every effort to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973, which aims to make federal electronic technology accessible for
persons with disabilities.
