Bulletin Board: Retirees Casting Call and Memory Loss Study

From time to time, Senior Planet receives requests for seniors to get involved in projects of various kinds. In our occasional Bulletin Board feature, we’ll pass along any that look interesting.

Casting Retirees For an Online Campaign

Have you ever wanted to be the face of an advertising campaign? Well, if you’re you currently retired and giving back to your community, you might get to be.

NYC based casting company Strickman Ripps is looking for active and inspiring retired seniors who would be willing to share their stories for a financial institution’s online campaign. Those selected for the campaign will be compensated.

You don’t have to live in New York to be considered; the production crew will travel to film you in your home or at some place nearby that helps tell your story.

Interested in auditioning?

To be considered, email the following to

  • Your name
  • Contact information
  • A recent photo
  • A brief summary of your retirement story

The casting company will select the stories they find most interesting and schedule a call; if you make it past that stage, they’ll schedule a video-chat audition.

Good luck!

Market Research Opportunity: Experiences With Memory Loss

If you or a loved one is dealing with diagnosed memory loss, mild cognitive impairment or early Alzheimer’s and want to offer insights, this opportunity might interest you.

Market research company Inspired Opinions is conducting paid, in-person and phone studies among patients and their caregivers in order to better understand the needs of people who are dealing with these issues. The in-person study is being conducted in five cities. A separate, phone-based study of people with mild cognitive impairment is looking for participants nationwide. See below for all contact info.

In-person study participants will be paid $125 for a 60-minute session – 30 minutes with the patient and 30 with the caregiver, who can be a family member or anyone who spends time helping the patient in their home one to three days per week. Phone-study participants will also be compensated.

If you would like to participate, call the corresponding number below to see if you qualify.
