Description With approximately seven million Americans age 65 and older needing long term care in 2001, nursing home care is a vital health concern in an aging America. Unfortunately, studies show that many older adults, caregivers, and health care providers are unaware of the cost of nursing home care or how to finance that care. The purpose of this project was to create a valuable and accessible resource for older adults, caregivers, and health care providers. After reviewing literature regarding where Americans find health information, it was determined that an informational website about financing nursing home care in Salt Lake County would be a valuable tool. In order to make recommendations for a website, this project consisted of two parts: 1. Identifying options for covering the costs of nursing home care in Salt Lake County and, 2. Recommending effective searching web design including design implications for the 65 and older Internet users. Recommendations were made for a new informational and accessible website on financing nursing home care.
