Older adults can follow a few simple tips to avoid uncovered expenses in the upcoming year.

With Medicare open enrollment beginning Oct. 15, now is the time to start preparing for future health care needs.

Frank Nelson, program manager at the Central Coast Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program, regularly educates Medicare beneficiaries about the importance of open enrollment. He urges seniors to use this period to reevaluate their Medicare Part D coverage and make the most of their policies.

In an interview with MySilverAge.com, Nelson said many beneficiaries feel overwhelmed or have questions about their plans: “It can be a complicated maze. There are a lot of ways you can get tangled up in the nuances.” To avoid the headaches that often come with health insurance, Nelson advises seniors to:

  • Check changes to Medicare Part D. Part D plans should be specific to an individual’s medication needs. Seniors will need to make sure their prescriptions are still covered each year during open enrollment.
  • Request local pharmacy pricing. Open enrollment is a good time to check pricing of prescriptions, as each pharmacy can differ.
  • Purchase a supplemental policy. Older adults might consider Medigap to cover health care costs that aren’t already covered by Medicare.

The steps outlined in this checklist help readers successfully navigate the complexities of Medicare open enrollment and stay on top of their health care plans. Read the full checklist here: http://www.mysilverage.com/medicarechecklist.

Expert Author Vince Stead

You can start your own business and make money helping others have a good time, and have a good time yourself doing it! As the population of baby boomers grows, and more of our population becomes older as time goes by. There are millions of folks 55 and older that have a lot of energy, desire, time and money, to do many things still! Some of the retirement communities that allow only people 55 and older to live their, have some of the most active seniors, with all kinds of wants and needs, and if you can fulfill that market, you can make some money doing it.

Find a way to fulfill this need, with either day trips, bus tours, cruises, vacation scheduling help, or even bingo, and you can set up various outings, where someone will win a big grand prize! You could arrange with local tour operators who are already in business. Find out their prices for certain day trips, and then negotiate for even a better price, so that you can make even more profit. You could make up your own fliers, and offer the same trips, but market it differently than the tour operators do, by going directly to places older folks like to be. You can try places like mobile home parks, senior citizens centers, hospitals, churches, etc…

You could start this business part time, and turn it into a full time business with a little imagination, and by putting lots of free classified ads up on the internet!

Ways You Can Get a Senior Citizen Up and Active Again by Kristie Brown

Expert Author Kristie Brown

Ask almost any senior citizen if they prefer to just sit around and take things easy, and they’re going to tell you “no way”. Mistakenly many of us equate an advanced age with lack of vitality and interest in the world around them, but as people are living longer, they’re retaining these characteristics well into their golden years. It’s possible you may know a senior who is somewhat limited in mobility or crippled up with arthritis, but you’ll find that if you suggest an activity, they’ll be more than willing to go with you. Here are some ideas for getting them up and active again:

1. If the person is lonely and enjoys company, you might be able to interest them in going to a local senior center or joining some type of club. Here they can find the companionship they seek, meet new friends, and enjoy activities with peers. In the beginning it may be difficult to get the person to go, because something new can be a challenge to anyone. Talk to the director of the center or club and find out when a good time to visit might be. Maybe there’s a time when the center isn’t very busy so that your senior wouldn’t be intimidated by a whole room full of strangers. You could invite them to go to dinner with you at a center potluck, or entice them with some of the activities you know they’d particularly enjoy. Once you get them involved, it’s a sure bet they’ll want to go back again and again.

2. Volunteering offers unique experiences for willing seniors. The different types of jobs abound, and your loved one will be sure to find something out there that he or she enjoys doing. Not only do these activities involve working as productive members of the community, but they can also come with perks, such as free dinners, small gifts, and service recognition awards. A senior who has been busy their entire lifetime doesn’t like to feel that they aren’t able to be an active part of the work community any longer. They can begin feeling depressed and worthless. Volunteering will demonstrate to them that they still have plenty to give and that their efforts are appreciated.

3. With the help of your senior, plan a get-together for others in the age group who live nearby in order to establish friendships. This is especially important when the person reaches an age where they are losing friends and need to find other people to share their world. Make sure to allow the senior to help with everything from planning to clean up. You may have to modify tasks to their abilities, but you also might find them working rings around you, because older folks have strong work ethics. Plan a simple menu and a few “get to know you” games to break the ice. They will have a lot to talk about, because they have shared similar experiences, such as the Great Depression, health problems, parenting,and other events from their lifetimes.

Senior Citizens Vs Crime by Victor C Swindell

Filed under: Articles 

What can we say about Senior Citizens?

  • They are Old!
  • They are Slow!
  • They have money!
  • They have nice expensive stuff!
  • They make easy targets to rob and beat up.
  • And almost no one seems to care.

 

Lately, you many have seen various news stories where senior citizens were a target of crime. In one of the latest stories in 2012 a WWII veteran was attacked, beaten, and car-jacked during daylight at a busy Detroit gas station and he had to crawl across a concrete parking lot to get help. If this wasn’t tragic enough there were lots of people who walked and drove pass him during this ordeal. What a shame! If you have seen the TV Show WHAT WOULD YOU DO, you know that we have a society of people who choose not to get involved, or treat a crime in progress like watching a reality television show. Some would say that this is a sign of the modern times, but it has happened before. During the same war in which this soldier fought a government decided to lie, round-up and exterminate some of its citizens, while other citizens turned a blind eye and did nothing. So history would prove that, many citizen chose not to get involved. We all hope that when we are in danger that others would come to assist us. Don’t necessarily count on it. The first line of defense in your life is YOU.

7 Things Senior Citizens Can Do

  1. Have a crime preventions specialist or local police give your residence a home security survey. They can tell you of things you can do to decrease you chances of being targeted.
  1. If you are returning home, look around of suspicious-looking strangers, have your key ready. If someone is home, alert them that you are coming home and to keep watch out for you. Don’t linger at the door. If you see someone near your house, go to your neighbor’s house and pretend to be a visitor, and it would be a good time to call the police.
  1. Establish a light up and lock-up routine to make sure all your doors and windows are locked. Be sure to close your drapes and pull down shades when you are retiring for the night.
  1. Jesus sent his disciples out two-by-two. This is an example you should adopt if possible. Whenever you need to go shopping or on an excursion that take you away from home, try to take a friend or relative with you.
  1. Try to vary your routines, you don’t know who is watching you and trying to figure when you are not going to be home.
  1. When parking, Try to park as close to your destination. Younger people should park a little further out to save spaces for elderly people.
  1. Be mindful of strangers, not all of them are really trying to help you- TRUST YOUR GUT!

Safety Tips for Traveling With Senior Citizens by David Stillwagon

April 24, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Feeling safe and secure is vital when you are traveling whether you are  traveling by yourself or with a group or family. It is always a big concern when  you have children especially when you are in an area that isn’t familiar to you.  Children have a habit of wandering away so keeping an eye on them is extremely  important. But it isn’t just children that need to be careful when traveling;  senior citizens also have to extra cautious.

Before you head out the door it is always a good idea whether you are a  senior citizen or not to check to make sure that your medications are with you.  Forgotten things like medication can be a major disruption to your trip.

A good detailed itinerary is the best place to start when planning a trip  with senior citizens. Knowing the times of travel, how long it is going to be  before getting there and what you will be doing helps to lessen the confusion  and questions that might arise. If you are traveling by car you should make an  estimate on how long the trip will take. If you are traveling with senior  citizens they may need more breaks should include that with your estimate.  Taking your time when traveling and enjoying the ride makes it more pleasant for  everyone.

If you are travelling on a plane then you need to take a few things into  account such as giving yourself plenty of time at the airport to check in and go  to the rest room if necessary. If the airport is large then you might want to  request a wheelchair if your senior citizen traveling partner gets tired on  their feet. Remember also that security is a lot tighter now so the time that  you are standing in line has increased greatly.

Seating arrangements on a plane or a bus should be considered with the older  adult in mind. If they have to take more restroom breaks that it is a good idea  to get them an aisle seat close to the restroom that way they won’t be have to  be climbing over folks.

After the plane ride is over and you leave the plane it might be a good time  to take a rest and a bathroom break. While the plane ride might not be tiring to  you it might be to others. A little rest now will definitely help out later.

Planning ahead and taking all the right precautions can make for enjoyable  trips with senior citizens.

Exhibitions
“Second Wind” Exhibition
Artist Robin Stark
Nov. 26, 2012-Feb. 14, 2013; Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Closed holidays.
Free admission and open to the public.
Las Vegas City Hall Grand Gallery, 495 S. Main St., First floor, (702) 229-1012.
Inspiration for this work was influenced by the work of American sculptor David Smith. The artist’s ceramic sculptural forms have a reference to the traditional ceramic vessel, yet deviate from functionality and focus on expressive formal elements (surface shapes defined by sharp edges and bold color) to suggest visual movement and momentum. The pieces treat the surface as a two-dimensional format to imply motion already established in the three-dimensional form through repetition and layering of various shapes and colors. The purity and intensity of the hues generate an emotional quality, which is critical to the overall nature of the pieces.

“Narratives of Progress” Exhibit
Artist Armin Mühsam
Jan. 18-March 16, Wednesday-Friday, 12:30 to 9 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Free admission and open to the public.

Bright Ideas for Entertaining

Bright Ideas for Entertaining

(Family Features) When the weather is nice, many people get the urge to entertain just a little more frequently. Interior design expert and TV personality Genevieve Gorder says the best approach to warm-weather entertaining is to make your space shine with a comfortable, approachable style. Genevieve has partnered with Mirassou Winery® to help brighten up entertaining spaces for sharing good times and making good memories. Try one of her easy entertaining ideas to make your home feel warm and welcoming – putting your guests at ease as they raise a glass to your hosting skills:

• Create a home bar on any surface of your home. Arrange beautiful wine bottles on a vintage silver or brass tray, add wine glasses and two taper candle holders. With a bit of mood lighting, glassware and beverages, a bar is just that simple and guests know they can pour their own wine.

• Put every surface to use when entertaining large groups, such as stacking coasters on the mantle to expand your typical entertaining space. Add a pop of color, such as the bright yellow sun on a bottle of Mirassou wine, so guests know they can use the mantle as a gathering place.

• The next time you have guests over for wine and cheese, create a buffet table that works your guests along the line visually. Start at the highest point with flatware and rolled linen napkins in tall vessels, then use cake tiers for flatbreads and crackers, followed by cutting boards for cheeses and accompaniments at the lowest point in the middle. Move the eye line back up again at the finish with vases of nuts and bottles of wine.

• Don’t be afraid to mix elements on your dining table to make your presentation really shine. Think about mixing metals like brass and silver with white glass to create a powerful triad. Then use mismatched plates and chairs to bring a homey and casual feeling to a gathering.

• A fun activity is hosting an at-home wine tasting. Ask guests to bring a bottle of wine from the same region – such as California – and then spend the evening trying different wines and learning which you like best.

Recapturing Your Youth With Senior Cruise Lines (Nevada Senior Guide)

September 27, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Everyone faces the time period when youth gives way to adulthood and old age sets in. Finding activities that seniors can participate in can be challenging. One of the best ways for older people to enjoy fun and entertainment is to book a destination on senior cruise lines. The cost is extremely affordable and there are many ways to have a good time.

Every activity that is located on the ship is specifically designed with senior entertainment in mind.

There are no age restrictions for having a great time and many people find that going on a cruise is the perfect time to recapture some of the essence that may have been lost in life. Everyone remembers how to have a great time when the right activities are presented. The only shipmates that are allowed on the cruise are all within the same age group to make making new friends easy. No one has to feel left out because he or she is getting older.

Travel agents that coordinate the sale of senior cruise lines tickets are quick to inform seniors about the discounted rates that are offered for this form of entertainment. The cost is lower compared with a standard cruise that may be taken by a younger couple. The ships know that many of the passengers are living on a retirement income and want to make the price affordable at every level of income for people to enjoy.

The activities are centralized and are not marketed to families or children like standard cruises. Seniors find it rewarding to attend these cruises because of the different activities that are available during the time they are a passenger. The food and entertainment value is designed exclusively for the older generation and getting the most out of the time spent is easy.

The main goal of taking a trip on senior cruise lines is to have fun and make new memories during the golden years of life. Being with people that are the same age helps many seniors to feel camaraderie. These relaxing getaways are an excellent way to enjoy life at an affordable price compared to the various forms of modern entertainment. Looking into taking one of these cruises will certainly not disappoint a senior that is looking for more than what is currently offered in life. Living on a limited income does not have to mean that it is too expensive to enjoy some of the benefits that old age has to offer.

The author has invested much time becoming an expert on the best cruises in the world and other related topics. Read more about senior cruise lines at Mel Davey’s website.
