Senior Planning Services Teams Up with SeniorNet to Educate Seniors On Medicaid Planning

 

Howell, NJ (PRWEB) November 26, 2014 --

 

Senior Planning Services, providing expert guidance for elder care issues, and Florida-based SeniorNet, a nonprofit organization providing the adult demographic education and access to computer technologies, have teamed up to help seniors navigate the rough seas of applying for Medicaid. Part of this program will focus on educating seniors on the topic of Medicaid eligibility and proper planning, while also helping them through the somewhat complicated process of applying for this coverage.

 

Senior Planning Services has made its mark in the industry as a veteran healthcare consulting company that is all about giving back to the community and helping where it makes a difference. Billed as the ultimate solution for optimized Medicaid eligibility, Senior Planning Services reports that thousands of Medicaid applicants and their families have relied on their expertise, promising a secure financial future for their qualified applicants.

 

The Medicaid application process is often frustrating for applicants and their families, states a Senior Planning Services spokesperson. The risk of failure is real, and the cost of failure can be financially devastating. This is why we have teamed up with SeniorNet because when a loved one is in need of long-term care, it is likely that there are numerous challenges to contend with.

 

Since its inception in 1986, SeniorNets mission has been to help seniors and those with specific needs by providing computer education, internet skills and sharing the latest technologies. As a premiere educational 501(c)3 nonprofit, SeniorNet has benefitted more than two million people. It has learning Centers throughout the U.S. including Indian Reservations in rural and urban areas as well as its affiliations in other countries.

 

Leslie M. Smith, retired IBM Business Development Executive and SeniorNet Chairman of the Board said, "this is another great example of collaboration to support our valuable and precious seniors. We believe that the information provided by Senior Planning Services will be very helpful to seniors."

SeniorNet Supports Saar Nepal's Elder Education Program through its Charlene A. Francis Scholarship

 

FORT MYERS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SeniorNet, the world's leading nonprofit technology educator of older adults, announced today it has awarded a $2,000.00 sponsorship from the Charlene A. Francis Scholarship Fund to Saar Nepal, a Nepalese organization that is similar in mission to SeniorNet and dedicated to educating and maintaining the wellbeing of their elder population. In addition, Saar Nepal will be provided access to the benefits and privileges given to SeniorNet Learning Centers across the United States. This grant marks another landmark in SeniorNet’s international reach, after earlier this year hosting a delegation from China eager to replicate SeniorNet’s successful learning model.

 

 

“We are proud to help support an organization like Saar Nepal in its parallel mission. Computers skills are crucial to enhancing everyone’s lives especially seniors who are sometimes isolated. This is a global challenge for all of us.”

 

 

The Charlene Francis Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 to honor her. She has made significant contributions to SeniorNet both at its Learning Centers and on the organization's national Board of Directors. Francis has served as a member, volunteer and distinguished leader for more than 25 years, including her dedicated years in leading the SeniorNet Learning Center in Oklahoma City where she continues to play an active role today.

 

Drawing on local resources -- tech company retirees, community facilities and donated equipment --SeniorNet minimizes its need to conduct large-scale fundraising activities by partnering with major corporations such as Microsoft, IBM, Que Publishing, Adobe, Google, AT&T and others. This specific scholarship is funded primarily by individual donations.
