that communicate to people judging eldercare needs? Any entré into

Rick,

An obvious place to start is AARP.org. Just google "older adults" and
you'll end up at a ton of sites, many of which are very good.

To look at how general web sites do for older adults, you might want
to look at this report:

To see research done on web design for older adults, and to see some
guidelines for designing, see:
