Coming To A Senior Center Near You in 2022
Senior Solutions has received a grant from the National Council on Aging’s Center for Benefits Access that provides funding for 20 months, Oct., 2021 – Sept., 2023, allowing Senior Solutions to partner with the six senior centers in Windsor and Windham Counties to find and enroll Medicare beneficiaries.
Benefit Enrollment Centers find adults living with disabilities, as well as any adult aged 65 and older who have limited income and resources, who might be eligible for Medicare. BEC advisors would work with eligible adults to apply and gain access to multiple benefits including: Medicare, Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
For more information, contact Wendi Germain at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-755-7295.
