(PRBuzz.com) April 13, 2012 -- According to statistics, over 94 million people in the United States are 50 years or older.
Commonly referred to as "baby boomers," the 50-plus age group definitely has its own specific concerns, interests, needs, and more. From worries about finances and healthcare to questions about taking care of an older parent while often still working full time, there is a wide range of topics that are very important to the over 50 crowd.
While some baby boomers have friends who are close in age, this does not necessarily mean they can or want to share many of their private worries with them. Others simply don't have anyone with whom they can talk, which can leave them feeling very alone with their concerns.
A website has been getting a lot of attention lately for its wealth of helpful, useful and reassuring information that pertains to anyone over the age of 50.
