Let me introduce myself. My name is Tony Rovere and I am the webmaster/owner of StuffSeniorsNeed.com. Thanks for visiting. I developed this site after I dealt with so many issues for my parents, ranging from finding cheap dentures for Dad (age 74) or navigating the Medicaid process after Mom’s heart attack (age 70) that I realized that my experiences would benefit not only senior citizens but also their caregivers as well. Ultimately, that is the reason I created StuffSeniorsNeed.com, to provide seniors and their caregivers with all of the information that I had personally acquired to enable them to live more rewarding lives. So I hope you enjoy the site…and get the information that you need. More Articles By Tony Rovere
