Senior Impact

Our Updated Site is Coming Soon

You may have noticed that there hasn't been much activity here for a while.  That's because we've been hard at work creating a new, improved site.  We are hopeful that it will be online in the next couple months.  The site will be much more user friendly, with search capabilities, more information for the directory listings we provide, and much more.  We're very excited about the launch and we hope you will be pleased with the updates.

Healthy Aging Resources

Even though our Older Adults guides are about as comprehensive as you'll find, we by no means think we have every topic completely covered.  That is what makes the web such a great resource - a good website can always help supplement what you find here.  One such website is Help Guide.org.  At this site you can find all sorts of helpful articles and tips to help you live a healthy lifestyle.  I hope you check it out.
