Title: Leading Age
Url: http://www.leadingage.org/
Publisher: American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging
Description: This website is a boon for anyone who researches, works, or cares for the elderly, particularly considering its aging-related services focus. The Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) describes itself in its "About" section as "an international coalition of more than 400 technology companies, aging-services organizations, businesses, research universities, and government representatives working together under the auspices of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging." To get a good idea of the latest ways technology is being used to improve the lives of seniors, visitors should click on the "News" tab at the top pf the page to choose among dozens of articles that provide examples. To read about some of the pilot projects that CAST is involved in, visitors should click on the "Pilot Projects" link. From there, the visitor will see a list of pilot project case studies that can be clicked on and viewed as PDFs. Each study is written up clearly and includes such information as lessons learned, challenges, implementation, and outcome. Studies that weren't successful were even included, and researchers and others will find much to learn from here.
