  • Senior citizens, have you filed for Grandparent's rights? If so, what was the outcome?

    Best answer: These rights come into play in a divorce usually, in Family Law court. The grandparents shouldn't be excluded from visitation with the child just because their son wasn't a good father, or vice versa for maybe the mother.

  • Would you consider this a compliment, insult or maybe both regarding aging?

    Best answer: a compliment if you really care that much about looking young for your age and a sad reflection on society that deems old age as an impending disaster/tragedy - a place we don't want to be.

  • Seniors, have you ever had run-ins with cults or cult-members during your life?

    People always talk about how you can get "swept in" to cults unknowingly but I want to know from some of you if you ever had that experience and what turned you off and how you escaped.

  • This is directed at Seniors 62+. Moved to a senior community find it intellectually stifling. Many are lchild like or have no interests.?

    I tried really hard to make friends in a Senior Community and found many are looking to mooch rides if they have no cars and take up my time to meet their own needs or they just have nothing of interest to talk to. Harder to make friends out in the world as one gets older. Lonely here.

  • Are you having your "Old Age" prematurely?

    Best answer: Nope, I'm 65 proudly, and my old age is not quite here, yet! Our waitress, last night, we're asking Senior Discounts, and she looked at me, like I was her age!

    My father is elderly and retired. He only has social security so money is tight. He is planning on moving to another state from California. We re looking to relocate him to Oregon or Colorado, however we are open to other suggestions such as North Carolina. He wants to be somewhere that is on the cold side instead of hot, he hates the heat. Not too cold to where its snowing but a place that maintains an average mild temperature. We are wondering what cities in these states are best for elderly retired people. Somewhere cheap but not trashy or crime ridden.

  • Are you getting dotty in your older years?

    Best answer: I'm only 61, but sometimes I think so. However, my husband (aged 66) tells me that he thinks our brief memory lapses and other forms of creeping lunacy are caused by the fact that our brains have simply absorbed so much information over the years that they have to pause now and then to make room for more. ... show more
    Best answer: I'm only 61, but sometimes I think so. However, my husband (aged 66) tells me that he thinks our brief memory lapses and other forms of creeping lunacy are caused by the fact that our brains have simply absorbed so much information over the years that they have to pause now and then to make room for more. Hence the occasional, "Now, what did I come in here for?" or "Damn, I went into the grocery to buy such-and-such, and I didn't do it!"

    I'll go with that explanation. It's so much more comforting than believing I'm going "dotty".

  • Should the members of our local senior's club be allowed to bring their grandchildren to the meetings?

    Best answer: If grandparents are babysitting their grandchildren it should be done in their home or out in a park where there is equipment to entertain the kids.
