Do older adults need a curated website?

Recently we came across a website that puts simple links to what might be considered essential sites for older adults all together in one place: seniordashboard.com.

This was originally designed by a couple specifically for their 80+ year old parents. It’s an interesting idea – but does it fly for the general population of older adults? The site is a good resource for the basics of web navigation and privacy considerations, and it a good jumping off point for the internet novice. However, for any such site, there may be questions about how the site is curated. What do you think about this type of site for older adults?
