    Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are age 65 or older and those younger than 65 with a disability. The definition of disabilities used to determine Medicare eligibility is the same as that used for Social Security benefits.

    Medicare can be a maze all by itself. It has various components, designated by the letters A through D. Each one provides different benefits. In general, out-of-pocket costs are lower in Medicare than in commercial health plans

    New Happenings in Fitness Programming

    We were all sad to hear that Sue Wyatt, fitness instructor, will be leaving for new adventures. Sue has been
    an asset to the senior center for over 15 years and we wish her the best.
    Fitness instructor Christina Palacois has stepped up to take over Sue’s classes and we welcome her. She has
    an excellent background in fitness and has been an instructor at Renegade.
    Julie Oliver and Arthur Sculco will be taking over the training for the Fitness Center. Julie currently teaches
    the Arthritis Strength and Balance, Cardio Fit and Tai Chi classes. Arthur has been offering individual and
    small group Personal Training as well as fitness lectures for the center. The center is happy to have each
    filling the void for the fitness programs and encourages everyone to take advantage of their expertise by
    taking a class or joining the fitness center.
