Message boards for seniors

Hi. My mom is in her late 60s and widowed for about 3 years. She is wanting to talk online to other seniors. Just wants to talk, no meeting etc. Any ideas on some good senior message boards? When I did a google for this, I got, millions of results. Also my mom is email literate, but not overwhelmingly computer friendly! Any input is appreciated!

Do you think she would like to be a part of the FC group? We do have a grandparent thread...

Neavon, we're a friendly site as you know and we have quite a few seniors. You and your mom could start a "Seniors Chat" thread here or in the Just Gabbin' area. Or, as Bar_bar suggested, visit our Grandparents area.

Neavon,
Since she is a widow, how about a chat room or board for widows. Unfortunately, I am only 38, but have met lots of friends in the past 9 years in the widow room. Just another idea.

I too would like to chat with other seniors...we recently retired and limited budget but I am bored to tears. Hubby won't let me go back to work....so I am interested in chatting with other seniors as to what keeps them busy 24/7. You can only clean house and hobbies just so much. Where is this "grandparents" and "window room"? How about a link please.
TIA

Actually, its not window. It is widow. You mentioned hubby so thankfully you dont qualify. I one that I've met my friends in is in aol. I haven't been there for quite a while. I'm sure if you google "grandparents boards" or "grandparents chat rooms" you should get something. Good luck.

Hi Myan...did you get any answers as what to do 24/7 other than cleaning house and hobbies?

I am a retired widow, and some days I just don't know what to do with myself. I don't want to spend all day on the computer, or watch TV. I read some. I have a young woman that does some cleaning for me every 2 weeks....but of course there is alot of household chores to do....but it is SO boring.

Myan, the link to our grandparents forum is a little closer to the beginning of this thread, in post #3.
