The time to think about the Pioneers Home is right now

Every senior citizen who is 65 or older and who has been an Alaska resident for at least one year is advised to submit an application to the Pioneers Home - even if they do not plan on moving there in the next ten or 20 years. "Don't wait until a crisis hits, such as falling and breaking your hip," said Virginia Smiley, Alaska Longevity Programs Manager. "Sometimes there is a lengthy waiting list and it's good to be on the Inactive List just in case the need arises."
