The content for the new website was based entirely on user experience research to understand what consumers wanted from a website devoted to planning for long term care.
Said Janice Luvera, vice president of Marketing at Genworth, “Our goal was to create a refreshingly different, contemporary website that addressed consumers’ desire for information about the impact of aging on their health, families and finances. We also wanted the site to reflect our desire to be a trusted ally for everyone who needs care as they age and those who love them.”
The dynamic, unconventional website was designed to invite exploration and provide empathy as well as insight into the joys and challenges of growing older. The site even offers simulations that allow visitors to experience many of the visual, auditory and mobility impairments that can jeopardize a person’s ability to care for themselves as they age.
The impairment simulations are part of a new “Aging & You” section, the heart of the redesigned website. There, visitors will find:
The “Aging & You” section is also home to Genworth’s flagship Cost of Care Survey interactive tool, which, during the past 15 years, has become the go-to resource for families planning ahead for long term care. The tool allows visitors to compare costs across different care settings and even among different cities, as well as project the cost of care into the future.
