Great Magazine for Seniors
Posted on Thu, April 6, 2017 at 11:54 am
While traditional print media is rapidly being replaced by onine videos and websites, many seniors have not fully embraced the internet experience. In part, this may be practical as font sizes can be small and general busyness or screen glare can make reading difficult. But more than that, many seniors yearn for the simple pleasures and joys of the "good old days" and are disinterested in 21st century pop or political culture. But where can they find anecdotes, news items, and stories that hearken back to a different era? Well, we have two exciting resources to share with you that might provide your loved one with significant joy and memories of times past. Consider these magazines, all available in tradition print form, as a gift to brighten their day and bring back some fond memories. The first two specifically target decades past and it's memories, the latter two are loaded with topical reading for seniors. Enjoy.
