What Free Services Are Available For Seniors?

Seniors looking for cheap discounts and other perks can take advantage of their benefits due to their age. For those with limited or no income, looking for free services in your area can be extremely helpful in terms of transportation, health, housing, legal assistance, and more. 

Free services for seniors can be found using the Eldercare Locator, Donated Dental Services, and Mission Cataract USA. 

Eldercare Locator

Often, free resources are location-based for seniors. The Eldercare Locator is a useful resource funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging, which helps seniors locate resources by concern, including legal assistance, elder abuse, and more. Some services are paid, while others are free depending on the senior’s qualifications. 

Donated Dental Services

For low-income seniors, Donated Dental Services provides free dental care by volunteer dentists. The good news is that it is available to seniors no matter where they live, but they will have to apply to see if they qualify. That said, the state may provide seniors with free dentures if they are eligible. 

Mission Cataract USA 

Seniors who suffer from cataracts and can’t afford surgery can benefit from Mission Cataract USA. They offer free cataract surgery to individuals of all ages who don’t have the means to pay for their surgery. However, you’ll need to check their website to see if a participating doctor or clinic in the area can perform cataract surgery. 

There are plenty of free resources available for seniors on a budget or low income, depending on where you look. Read on to explore other legal resources for seniors and browse our other articles on Senior Strong!
