Senior Info Site

The original creators of the Senior Info Site planned on being the ultimate resource guide for all senior related living alternatives, healthcare, products, services, religion, travel, recreation and much more to help you make the most of your senior years. At some point ithe site's domain expired and disappeared.


When I learned that was no more I was extremely disappointed. Imagine my surprise when I recently discovered that the site's domain was available. I decided to buy it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from its archived pages. I felt the the senior discussion page certainly hit home. Hopefully reviving this site will inspire someone, who is not only more capable than I, but also has the time and passion to use the philosophy of this site and create a vibrant new website with similar goals.

Every family at some point is faced with addressing the needs of their most senior members. My uncle recently had to move from his long standing home to a smaller, more manageable space. Fortunately, the moving company he used, specializes in senior relocation. They are one of the oldest and most established service oriented Baltimore movers in the area, and have a reputation for superb customer service. Moving is stressful enough, even when you're young and able-bodied. Older folks need more help, more time, and more understanding from the service providers they hire. Even though the move was just cross town, the quality of the moving service can make a huge difference on the real and perceived outcome of the move. The circumstances, needs, and forward thinking advice offered by this site will be missed and we hope keeping some of the information live for a while will be useful. Which brings me back to my point, that I hope some other young or not so young enterprising person is inspired by the goals of the founders of

Lady wants companionship - Donna 10/29/02
Posted by Donna on October 29, 2002 at 19:52:29:

She has recently lost her husband of 40 years (2 months) and is having anxiety attacks and wants company. She wants to know if there is some place she can go or maybe have visitors to keep her mind busy. She is approximately in her mid 60's. She lives in the Oxon Hill, MD area and does
drive, but not everyday. She really just wants companionship, someone to physically talk with. Anything you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Trying to find meaning - Irene 10/29/02 (2)
Posted by Irene on October 29, 2002 at 15:51:57:

I am 69 years old and am trying to fill the void of not having gradchildren ( mother of three girls). I have been married 50 years with a non communiting husband and am trying so hard to fill and find meaning in my life I have a part-time job and many friends, but the thought of having nothing to leave behind to anyone haunts me. I am also so lonely ---- Irene

In Reply to: Trying to find meaning posted by Irene on October 29, 2002 at 15:51:57:

Please forgive the delay in my reply, I was away first and then became ill for a while.

I felt your sadness in your e-mail. There are numerous organizations, charities, cultural and religious associations that would probably love to have you connect with them. If you want real meaning in your life and have no grandchildren, work with ill children and their families, like the Ronald McDonald House. If not there, there are numerous volunteer positions with healthy and disabled children, with adults at hospitals, with hospices all which would love to have someone help with their patients as a volunteer.

Hope this was helpful and good luck in your quest.

My husband died in 1992 at the age of 55. I did not find out if I could have recieved any ss benefits through him. I was 50 at that time. I am now married and have been since 1999 and just want to know information on whether or not I was or am now intitiled to any of his ss money? I had an understanding from some place that I couldn't apply until I was 62. Also, didn't know about what happens because I'm remarried.
Thank you for your answer.


Crime against a Senior - Lucy Newman 4/11/01
Posted by Lucy Newman on April 11, 2001 at 09:13:19:


My name is Lucy Newman. There is a wonderful senior in our neighborhood and she is having a problem. For the last two weeks she has been receiving harassing telephone calls from an anonymous individual. The calls are very crude and common. She is very upset by these incidents. She has saved the messages on the answering machine but she is now afraid to answer her phone. The telephone company suggested that she utilize *59. She stated that this called the individual back. It is unfortunate that Verizon did not take this call seriously. How can I help my neighbor?

Financial Assistence for Assisted Living - Pat Stamato 1/06/00
Posted by Pat Stamato on January 06, 19100 at 08:01:39:

My mother suffered a stoke a year ago which left her unable to communicate or takcare of herself. Since she was still able to walk we were lucky enough to place her in assisted living. Her monthly income is $1,200 a month and of course the assisted living is approximately $3000 a month. We make up the shortfall by using her limited savings and figure her assets will be used up in three years. At that time the State would have to take over. My understanding is the State would put her in a nursing home costing almost $9000 a month instead of leaving her in assisted living. Are there any alternatives or new laws that will help.
Thanks, Pat
