Three Online Directories for Older Adults

50 Something Info
Sue Levine, a librarian, has developed a new online directory for older adults, called 50 Something Info.  This website has links to trustworthy websites that have information relevant to older adults.  The directory has many categories, including caregiving, health and wellness, medical, lifestyle, and law.  By listing only reliable websites, this directory can save you time and effort. 
[Note: this website is supported by ads, just as search engines such as Google.]

At this website,you can find direct links to everything from "Meals on Wheels", to the "Benefits Checkup" website. Most of the links are to government websites.

Community Resource Directory
If you are looking for Senior Services from both government and non-profit agencies in Pasco or Pinellas County, you can search a Community Resource Directory created by the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas.  There is also a telephone service - the "Senior Helpline"- at 1-800-963-5337.  This helpline is available Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm.
