Age Well’s website is the main touchpoint for the many groups it serves, particularly older adults, caregivers, and healthcare providers. As such, it was essential that this new website make it possible for users from each of these groups to easily access the resources, services, and information that they need. A key piece to this was web accessibility, in order to ensure equal access for those who use assistive technologies. Additionally, this new website would also need to have a modernized design and streamlined functionality, and an improved conversion rate for both contacts and donations.
When creating Age Well’s new WordPress website, web accessibility and SEO best practices informed our every decision. Upon starting this project, we discovered many redundant and outdated pages, which we cut down to create a more organized site structure. Content across the site is now accessible to all users, key highlights including the new mega menu, video transcripts, and the transformation of select PDFs into page content. Supplemental content is also now able to be dynamically pulled into pages via a new Information post type. This improved functionality combined with a much-needed design refresh has led to a stunning website built to meet WCAG 2.1 Level AA accessibility standards.
