New information about Medicare

Senior Concerns will present a virtual community seminar titled “Medicare: What’s New for 2021” from 4 to 5 p.m. Tues., Oct. 13 via Zoom.

Gail McElroy of McElroy Insurance Services will lead the program.

During the seminar, attendees will learn how to determine if a Senior Advantage Plan Original Medicare works best for them, how Medicare supplements work and why they seem so confusing, why and when to change plans, and why it is important to participate in Medicare’s annual open enrollment.

In addition, Medicare Part D drug coverage will be reviewed.

McElroy, an experienced health insurance professional with over 17 years of experience, helps Medicare members navigate through their health insurance options.

Space is limited online to 100 people. For reservations, visit seniorconcerns.org/seminars.

Walking to end Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the biggest fundraiser of the year, will be held Sat., Oct. 31 in Westlake Village.

The walk has been modified due to COVID-19. Instead of walkers gathering on a specific route to walk together, this year participants will not physically gather as a large group as they had in previous years.

On event day, participants will walk on their own on the street, trail, and track with family or with their team while others are doing the same.

Walk participants will be given a purple T-shirt that features sponsors of the event.

On walk day, the goal is to raise awareness about the disease and funds to support individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families.

To sign up as a sponsor, team captain or a participant, email lmleonard@alz.org or visit alz.org/cacentralcoast.
