This presentation of the library system’s Westchester Seniors Out Speaking
is perfect for anyone trying to navigate their way through our complicated healthcare system for older adults. It will help those who already have Medicare, as well as people soon to be 65, planning their retirement, or assisting relatives and friends with their medical decisions.
The engaging, interactive program outlines the various parts of Medicare and lays out the costs associated with the medical and drug insurance provided by the government and private companies. Topics include:
· Original Medicare
· Medicare Advantage Plans
· Prescription drug plans (Part D)
· Medigaps (supplemental plans)
· Various cost-saving programs (MSPs, Extra Help, EPIC, etc.)

SOME ADDITIONAL PARKING SPOTS BEING CREATED AT UPPER LEVEL OF MULTIPURPOSE CENTER FOR SENIORS Many seniors keep complaining about the lack of disabled parking at the upper level of the Multipurpose building. We promised to address this problem. And, will have the town public works department create more parking for seniors at the upper level within the next few weeks (hopefully sooner!). This will make it easier for those seniors who can’t walk up the hill to do so.
