Public and private benefits are a lifeline to helping fixed and low-income people with Medicare age well. Learn about benefits programs to pay for healthcare, food, medicine, transportation, utilities, and more. $30 billion in benefits go unclaimed every year because eligible older adults are unaware that these programs exist or how to apply. At this workshop you will learn how to access these supports and stretch your budget with programs such as Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program (MSP) and Extra Help (Medicare Drug Coverage).

Our furry canine critters are affectionate, playful, and make us laugh. But our dogs are also good listeners to our worries – they look directly at us with furrowed eyebrows, as they become our counselors. Did you know that dogs are the best possible judge of character of the people around you? Trust them! They teach us to be brave, be loyal, be ourselves. Of all the animals on earth, only dogs (and some cats) have earned their way into our beds. How did they do this -- from their wolf origins, to our ancient campfires, to the millions of our dog companions today?

Everyone needs an estate plan. It's not safe to assume a last will and testament is adequate to protect your loved ones and your assets. While estate planning is often about planning for the future, there are actions you can take today to ensure your beneficiaries, including your chosen charities, receive what you intend. This interactive lecture-discussion will explore the key elements of an effective estate plan, discuss various ways to include charities, and answer your questions about the process.

In our increasingly digital world, many older adults are learning to connect with others online. Social media has both positive and negative effects - it can be an opportunity to learn about events, news, and ideas you care about while connecting to others. It also offers countless advertisers personal information about you and your life. We'll talk about why we need to be aware of these major platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and how they work, so that you can decide for yourself if adding this new dimension to your life is right for you.
