Reason would be something she'd like now she's tried it.

You have educational deals, so, the question is, can that extend to include pensioners?

It's just a thought and it'd do a lot of good too.
After being on the market for 13 years without it, I wouldn't hold my breath for a "senior discount", however; your neighbor may be best suited to picking up a Reason Essentials license on the cheap to get her started.
