Medicare Explained
Free virtual Medicare seminars will be offered on Mondays in November to educate participants about Medicare basics, coverage options and financial assistance programs. The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP) is conducting free programs presented by the Ohio Department of Insurance. Register at insurance.ohio.gov

Care for Caregivers
November is National Caregivers Month. Mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, nieces, nephews and friends all act as caregivers for loved ones.  It is estimated that nearly one in five Americans provide unpaid caregiving services.  November is the time to recognise the tremendous work these family members and friends do and maybe even treat them to something special like a break from caregiving, a meal, a spa day and a heartfelt and well-deserved thank you. For more information go to caringcommunity.org.
