Reading glasses don't necessarily fix all the problems of increasing age, hence the increasing popularity of large print books. New titles even come out in large print within weeks of their launch dates in standard format these days. But there are more readable typefaces you could use if you are wanting to make the articles readable for older people.

I agree with Paul that the wide measure of A4 will allow too many words on the page with Times, unless you have very wide margins.
