Some ways your business can improve its communication with seniors are:

  • Set font at a minimum 12 point type where possible.
  • Use typefaces like Arial or Times New Roman.
  • Ensure margins are flush left and ragged right. This is easier to read than fully justified text.
  • Use images of people of different age groups, and images that reflect cultural diversity.
  • Avoid printing text over the top of photographs or graphics.
  • Check your contrast. Avoid yellow, blue and green in close proximity and avoid patterned backgrounds.
  • Use dark fonts against light backgrounds.
  • Break long text into shorter sections.
