7 Helpful Freebies for Seniors

7 Helpful Freebies for Seniors

There are programs all over the country that offer freebies for seniors! You won’t believe what we’ve found! 

After being told over and over again that there just isn’t any help for low income seniors in this country, I did some research… and we’ve found some amazing things!

In this article, we’ll reveal seven helpful freebies for seniors. Check out our directory of senior assistance programs for even more help!

Medical Alert Systems

Did you know that approximately 30,000 seniors die from fall-related deaths each year? Medical alert systems help keep seniors safe but they can be very expensive. Fortunately, we’ve found providers that can help. 

If you have access to Medicaid, Medicare, or health care from the Department of Veterans Affairs, you may be able to get a free medical alert device from them. If you don’t have access to those programs, you may be able to get assistance from your local Area Agency on Aging.

Many states have authorized programs that help pay for these systems, as they help seniors avoid costly medical expenses. Your area may also have access to a State Assistive Technology Program or Assistive Technology Loan Closet that can help you get these devices for free.

Free Dentures & Dental Care

Dentures are expensive. I know this from experience because my husband doesn’t have any teeth. That’s a long story for another day but today, I’m just excited to share that we’ve found some easy ways for seniors to get free dentures. 

Dental Lifeline Network is an incredible nationwide program that partners with over 15,000 dentists and 3,400 dental labs. They offer free comprehensive dental care to people with disabilities and those who are elderly.

If you are 65 or older, you may be able to get free dental care services and possibly even free dentures through this program. Visit to apply for their program in your state. 

Free Hearing Aids

We’ve found hearing aid freebies for seniors, too! If you receive health care benefits through Medicare, Medicaid, or the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, you may be able to get free hearing aids from them. If you do not have those benefits, then you may be able to get free hearing aids through programs like the Miracle-Ear Foundation, the Hearing Aid Project, or Starkey Hearing Foundation. 

Save money on hearing aids!

Need help with hearing aids? No problem! You may be able to get affordable hearing aids that don’t break the bank through CareConnect USA’s secure affordable hearing aid line. Call them at 888-258-5305 now!

Free CaptionCall Phone

If you have hearing loss, then you need to know about CaptionCall. This is one of our favorite freebies for seniors! With this service, you can read captions of what people are saying over the phone so that you can understand conversations more easily. The service is free to those who qualify but your medical provider may need to help you apply. 

Free Trackers

Project Lifesaver helps provide tracking systems for people who have dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, down syndrome, traumatic brain injuries and more. This program distributes bracelets that use radio frequency tracking technology to help locate at-risk individuals who wander away from their caregivers. 

It’s important to know that Project Lifesaver is a nationwide charity that partners with local organizations. The local organizations administer the program so the program varies depending on where you live. In many areas, the trackers are provided free of charge. 

Free Ombudsman Services 

Ombudsman services help protect the rights of seniors who live in nursing homes and other assisted living facilities. These advocates can help you find a facility, resolve problems and ensure that you get quality care. The service is administered by the Administration on Aging, so contact them for details. They may know about other freebies for seniors, too!  

Free Senior Support Groups online

Senior Support Groups help people connect over common interests, life circumstances or health concerns. These groups can help you get through tough times, make friends and feel connected with others. There are many groups available, and they can be found by contacting local senior centers, libraries, physicians, neighborhood and community organizations, or even by reaching out on social media.
