“Using ServiceLink to find answers to questions on aging” subject of July Seniors Count workshop
Do you need more services to stay at home as you age? Do you understand Medicare and supplemental health insurance benefits? Do you need help in taking care of your elderly parents? Have you made phone calls looking for local services, but still haven’t received answers? Are you looking for answers about alternatives to a nursing home?
The questions that arise as you age aren’t always easy, but locating a knowledgeable person to help you find those answers is closer than you think when you contact your local ServiceLink Resource Center.
Learn more about this valuable community resource on Monday, July 14 at the July workshop presented by Seniors Count at the Nashua Senior Activity Center.
Andrea Jaeger, ServiceLink Medicare Specialist, will provide information about the wide variety of services available through the local ServiceLink office, including information on Medicare and Medicaid.
The workshop begins at 1:00pm. The Senior Activity Center is located at 70 Temple St. in Nashua.
