Websites For Seniors
There are lots of great web sites for seniors who want to network with other seniors, learn more about computers and the Internet, or access information especially helpful for older and retired folks. The place I recommend as a starting point is FirstGov's Senior Citizens Resources website, where you can find Consumer Protection tips, information on Volunteerism for Seniors and Adult Education, Estate Planning advice, Federal and State Agencies for Seniors, and links to government sites such as the Administration on Aging, Social Security Administration, and Veterans' Health Administration.
SeniorNet's mission is to provide access to computer technology for older adults which will enhance their lives and enable them to share their knowledge and wisdom. In addition to over 200 learning centers in the US, SeniorNet operates SeniorNet on the World Wide Web, where all seniors are welcome to participate in hundreds of SeniorNet RoundTable discussion groups. SeniorNet members learn and teach others to use computers and the Internet to accomplish a variety of tasks. If you have a desire to continue learning and a willingness to contribute your knowledge to others, SeniorNet is for you.

The site has not been updated since 2003, and some of the links no longer work. But I mention it because there are a LOT of links on the page, and many of them are still useful to seniors.
SeniorLink is dedicated to helping aging parents maintain independence in their own homes - safely and with dignity. They offer options to the children of elders who are confronted with difficult choices in managing the care of their parents. Some of the content on this site requires a paid subscription, but you can find some good stuff in the Caregiver FAQ and Top Elder Risks sections.
Write A Senior
While researching this issue, I came across a truly wonderful site called Write a Senior Citizen, which was created by two teenagers who want to connect lonely seniors with email or snail mail pen pals. The brother & sister team from California has received a
