Medicare and Medicare-Related Programs

     Deb works closely with the Waukesha County Aging and Disability Resource Center to educate older adults, and people who work with them, about Medicare and Medicare-related programs.  For many people, Medicare can be an overwhelming topic, and finding objective information and resources can be challenging.  Debbie will share information about Medicare as well as county, state and federal resources with members of the rotary.
     Also, since many Medicare beneficiaries struggle to make ends meet and may have difficulty paying for their prescription medications and/or health care costs, she will include information about the Medicare programs designed to help people with lower incomes and assets.
