This is a big year for me. Seniority Matters celebrates its' fifth year, and I am turning 60. Which got me thinking about a facelift. For the website, naturally.

Just last week, my college pals and I reconnected for a reunion over dinner. We picked a restaurant whose menu we knew would please all of our finicky diets. What we didn’t check, however, was the rating of the noise level, which many reviewers now indicate with “noise bomb” icons. This one was off the charts, and even though we are still blessed with good hearing we (and the wait-staff) had to yell to be heard.

Imagine having just the meals you want, prepared just the way you like, without having to do any of the shopping, cooking, or clean-up.  Now, imagine having all this in the convenience of your own home. Sounds too good to be true?  It's not.

There's no doubt that while caregiving is a loving responsibility, it can also be incredibly stressful and isolating. That's why t's so important that caregivers take both mental and physical breaks as often as possible.

There’s no shortage of gourmet meal delivery services to choose from – they seem to be the new, new thing. But luckily for us, there’s one serving our south Florida area that is exclusively intended for older individuals and it’s called Martha’s Senior Gourmet.

We spent a lot of time worrying about our children as they grew up. Now that they're young adults, it seems that for many of us, our parents are now our focus of concern. Is my mother safe? Did she get home from her doctor's appointment? Did she return home after going to the movies?

It’s Medicare Open Enrollment time (October 15 - December 7)!  Maybe it’s because many of us are nearing Medicare age,  that I’m receiving many calls on how to select a Part D Drug Plan.  I thought I’d lay out a step-by-step guide on how to go about it.
