NIHSeniorHealth, the health and wellness Web site for older adults from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently added "long-term care" to its roster of research-based health topics of interest to
older adults that includes exercise and physical activity, safe use of medicines, and management of diseases such as stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer disease. NIHSeniorHealth at www.nihseniorhealth.gov is designed to be senior friendly—tailored to the cognitive and visual needs of older adults. The short, easy-to-read segments of information, large print, open-captioned videos, and speech function make the information on the site easy for older adults to see, understand, and navigate.
