Cheap Discount Dental Plans For Senior Citizens – Maintaining Dental Health Without Paying Too Much by Marcia Templer

May 8, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

As you age dental care becomes more important and essential. You can no  longer afford to put off treatments that you need today, until tomorrow or next  month. The neglect of minor treatments can lead to bigger and riskier health  problems down the line.

What is a senior citizen discount dental plan?

Discount dental plans allow senior citizens over the age of 65 to get access  to treatments and procedures, while paying as little as possible. Senior  citizens can save up to 60% on routine checkups and procedures. Unlike dental  insurance, dental plans require very little paperwork and there are no health  restrictions.

My income is limited, how do I ensure that I get access to treatments when  I need them?

The fact is a lot of senior citizens live on limited income. This income must  be distributed on a monthly basis to cover housing, healthcare, automobile,  food, entertainment and other daily living expenses. This fact unfortunately  leads some seniors to treat dental care as a luxury rather than an essential  part of their lives.

Since plans do not have health restrictions, it is relatively easy to enroll  in one and gain access to routine dental checks – which are important to ensure  that minor issues do not become big dental problems in the future.

Will I qualify, if I have existing dental problems?

Yes, plans do not have pre-existing conditions or health restrictions so  almost anyone can qualify – even if you have less-than-perfect dental  health.

How are plans priced?

Most plans are priced based on your zip code. A reputable plan network allows  you to search for plan rates with no commitments and compare various networks  before making any purchases.

Senior Citizen Affiliates: How They Hinder Themselves From Success by Christopher Kyalo

Senior citizen affiliates should be very grateful for the World Wide Web  because it allows them for the first time to do business without the sort of  prejudice that they are bound to face in the offline world.

Actually one of the amazing things that the net does is to make everybody  equal. Neither the very young nor the very old senior citizen affiliate gets  discriminated against by virtue of their age. It therefore reduces the whole  race to a person’s business skills and ability. Sadly the reality on the ground  is that this advantage has not been able to benefit many senior citizen  affiliates.

There are several reasons why many senior citizen affiliates have found it  difficult to succeed online. Most of these reasons have to do with old fashioned  traditions and beliefs that do not quite fit online.

For example most senior citizen affiliates have been brought up to believe  that anything that is free will tend to be of very little value in terms of  benefits. This is the reason why many of them have stubbornly refused to believe  that the most effective online marketing tool is free. We are of course  referring to articles marketing.

Online the rules are different because Google for example perfected their  search engine over many months before they finally sat down to figure out a way  of generating revenue from their wonderful free tool.

Actually younger people find it a lot easier to grasp and benefit from the  net than senior citizen affiliates.

Things Senior Citizens Do to Enjoy Life by Julia McCartney

May 3, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

What do you think most senior citizens do for fun? Well, that can be a long  list with so many, but I’m sure it would be a fun one. Considering most seniors  citizens grew up in an era that didn’t need technology or a lot of people to  have fun. I want to look at some of the ways of those who came before us and  even reflect with those who are senior citizens. I like to call them the young  at heart.

One thing that remains the same is the health of most baby boomers. I have  always wondered what their secret was to a healthy and enjoyable life and  talking to a few seniors I’ve uncovered some of those things.

One of the things most seniors say keeps them going is Music. Music in the  years was filled with several dance steps that most still enjoy to date. I can  remember watching aunts and uncles at weddings, birthday celebrations and when  the music comes on they are up and on the dance floor “cutting a rug” as they  call it. The music and dancing was a mere means to get the exercise that they  needed while having fun.

Some seniors even enjoy the everyday nature aspect of life. Fishing, hiking  and gardening are a few of the top things that most enjoy. You see them even  every movie or television show that comes on. Someone in the park taking a  stroll and some young person bumps into them. I’m sure you have seen the water  scenes and you notice two older men in the background on a small boat with  fishing rods hoping for a catch. To date more and more older women enjoy just  going outside and getting down and dirty gardening. There’s nothing like peace  of mind when it comes to living a stress free life.

I can’t recall seeing people in my generation being able to just enjoy the  simple things as fishing, hiking or even gardening. Those things are to old  school for my generation.

More and more seniors are starting to get into journaling. I remember clips  showing people writing letters in older films showing how everyone use to  communicate with each other and wait for the letter to come in the mail. I  didn’t realize that it helped penmanship and helped stimulate the thoughts in  our heads to express what we felt. In this age we email and text. There’s no  communication outside of that.

There are also some senior citizens who enjoy technology and learning how to  use different forms of it. The sentiments during the technology boom for most  seniors were they didn’t understand any of it, however, over time that all  change with a new appreciation for it.

One of the last things I’ve seen in most of the elderly is there love of  outdoor games and sports. I’ve seen more seniors with playing “Hopscotch and  Kick Ball,” in the past few months than I have since I were a kid in the 1980’s.  I guess it’s another great way for them to enjoy the fresh outdoors and keep  their heart rate pumping.

Maybe, everyone can take an example from there book when it comes to enjoying  life and making every moment count.

Marketing to Senior Citizens – Assume Nothing! by Marte Cliff

May 3, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Once upon a time, senior citizens were old people. They were assumed to be  suffering from ill health and in need of care. They sold their homes so they  could move in with children or move to a care facility. Not any more.

Now senior citizens exhibit the same variety of health and fitness as  people much younger. In fact, those who have actively taken care of  themselves are probably more fit than those in their teens and 20’s who shun  exercise and live on junk food.

So, assume nothing, because senior citizens come in many varieties,  with many different goals.

Many choose to remain in their homes, while others want a change of scenery.  But even those want to sell have different reasons.

Some want to get away from excessive maintenance chores. They’ll  choose a smaller home with a smaller yard – or perhaps a condo. They may be in  failing health, but don’t assume so. They may just want to pursue hobbies or  take up volunteer work or be free to travel. Many have something they want to do  that they couldn’t do before, and they don’t want to be tied down by a high  maintenance home.

Others want to find a new home with a large yard, or even acreage, so  they can take up gardening or buy a horse or raise dogs.

Some just want to get away! They’ll sell the old homestead and move  into a motor home so they can see the places they’ve been dreaming about for all  those years when they were tied to work.

Some want to move to a more temperate climate – they’re tired of the  cold and snow and want to get outdoors and play all year. Some have always  dreamed of living on a lake or in the mountains or on the desert. Some wanted to  get away to a small town with a slower pace – or to move to a city with opera  houses and art galleries and the theater. But until now, they were stuck because  they were afraid to move away from their work. Now they can go where they  want.

Of course, there still are those seniors who are selling because they do need  to move in with the kids or to an assisted living facility.

Your job as an agent is to not assume anything. If you want  to sort your lists, set up a capture on your website with information about  downsizing to a smaller home, and a separate capture with information about  transitioning to assisted living. You could even have different pages on your  site – just like you might have different pages and different information for  first time buyers and move-up buyers.

When you get a call to list a home for a senior citizen, go with no pre-set  ideas. Wait and talk to the homeowner before you try to anticipate just what  kind of assistance they need. Otherwise, you’ll risk alienating a new client  before you get a chance to show your stuff!
