National Council on Aging - Main Page - The NCOA has been around since 1950 and is an established charitable organization that is apparently the first charitable organization providing a national voice for older Americans to act as their advocates in dealing with service providers and policymakers. They have an excellent resource on financial fraud prevention - as well as a wealth of other resources. 

Vision Center - lots of helpful and entirely free content available targeted towards older adults (and others) with vision problems. Nice to see community-oriented pages like this that just give it away (there are a few ads embedded on the page, but they're pretty minimal).
