Well, there are good and well applicable reference documents out there! 

One of those I can recommend as a frequent user is the (recently, with
regard to ICT updated) European (ETSI [1]) Guide on Design for All [2].

It describes design for all, user populations and their characteristics,
aging and the change of user abilities impacting ICT. It provides design
guidelines and advice on the use of assistive technologies. 

I do not want to fill your mailboxes with a large file but would anybody be
interested, I can circulate copies (freely available).

Best regards,
