Internet Services for Seniors

This is the best time in the world to be a Senior Citizen!  Baby Boomers are graduating into retirement by the thousands and services for the senior population are never-ending.

Internet access opens the entire world to the Baby Booming population.  Just as the corner grocery and drug stores were available to the neighborhood population 50 years ago, all the stores and service-based sites on the internet are available to those belonging to the cyberspace population.  The internet is now the neighborhood and options for services meeting the demands of surfers are unlimited.

Baby Boomers in particular literally have the world at their fingertips.  Web sites galore seek to get the attention of this exploding population.  For example, if you want to travel, entering your destination with ‘travel to…’ in any search engine gets you more options than you can imagine.  Or you can simply go to a site like http//seniorcitizenjournal.com and peruse the latest entries and options for individual or group travel to any destination on Planet Earth.

Or if you want to evaluate the choices for Medicare plans, many group health care companies offer comparison shopping on their sites.  As well, http//medicare.gov offers comparison shopping among companies, not just plans within companies.  You don’t have to leave the comfort of your home and computer desk to get the information you need to make an informed choice for health insurance coverage in retirement.

Social networking sites provide unlimited opportunity for networking with other Baby Boomers on the internet.  You can identify others with the same interests as yours on myspace.com, facebook.com, linkedin.com, just to name a very few.  Whether it’s chatting in online chat rooms or blogging about your favorite subject, you can stay connected with people who share your particular zest in life!

We’re just touching the tip of the iceberg here.  Internet services range from Alzheimer’s information to Zoology volunteerism.  Everything in-between is what you will find in terms of services for Baby Boomers here on SCJ in the coming weeks and months!
