Tips for Navigating the Answers on Aging Guide

Use the following tips for navigating the Answers on Aging Resource Guide:

  • Make use of the table of contents.
  • It is helpful to download the guide onto your computer. After it is downloaded, you will be able to search words, phrases, or organization names in the PDF document to find the specific services you are seeking.  If you are unable to open the guide as a PDF, in order to search you may also use the computer search tool.  On a Mac computer: hold down Command ⌘, press F, then release both keys.  On a PC, you can hold down CTRL, press F, and release both keys.  A search bar should appear in the upper right hand corner of your screen where you can type your search words.
    • When you enter in a search word or phrase, the PDF viewer will identify the pages of the document in which that word or phrase is listed. For example, if you search the word “dementia,” the viewer will jump to the first page in which the word “dementia” is listed (“dementia” will be highlighted), and you can click on the forward arrow to move to the subsequent pages that word is listed on.
  • If you’d like to visit an organization’s website prior to or instead of calling, type in the name of the organization and the city into Google or another search engine website. Most likely, the first link will be the website you’re looking for. For example, if you want to visit the website for Volunteers of America, type: “Volunteers of America Fort Collins” into the search bar.
