Today, we look at the kinds of free services available for seniors. Tomorrow, we consider the best places to retire. These are both important topics for many of us.

One of the more valuable posts at SeniorNet’s blog is “19 Free Services for Seniors or Their Caregivers.” As Tony Rovere of Agingcare.com notes:
“Most seniors these days are living on limited incomes from sources that may include Social Security, a small pension, or maybe some other form of government assistance. With few resources at their disposal, finding services for free or discounted prices is vital. There are likely many of these types of services available through your local Office for the Aging (the name of this government agency may be different in your local area, i.e. Division of Senior Services) or local charities such as Lions Club or Meals-on-Wheels, or on the Internet through sites like ElderCare.gov.”
“However, in my opinion, the most rewarding of these freebies for seniors and their caregivers – things like free hearing aids and free dentures – will be more difficult to come by. From my experiences as a caregiver, I have compiled a list of these types of services and provided a roadmap and examples for how to find them.”
