Ease of Use

AgingCare.com gives users four different functions to use, and each one can be picked up in a matter of seconds. Large font and easy to use category tabs. The caregiver forum even provides a menu of common topics to help filter the most popular questions.

Visual Design

This website is noticeably minimalistic. And although it does advertise its own services and marerials, they are clearly distinguised from the site's other content. However, the site could stand to use more images; the few ones here are of stock quality.

Quality

The site's materials focused on caregiving issues are useful and high quality. And the user forums offer a variety of perspectives on caregiving that increase the website's personality and user-friendliness.

Credibility

Author names appear on all educational content. Some include dates of last edit, and others do not. The site's content writers aren't necesasarily experts in the field, but they do appear to provide credidible, journalistitic articles based on sound research.
