AARP Tax-Aides Needed

Why Review your Medicare Part D Prescription Plan?

This is the only time each year that all people with Medicare can join or change their Medicare prescription drug plan.  Even if you like your current Medicare drug plan, it is strongly recommended that you review your plan for the upcoming year.  You may be able to save time, money and frustration by choosing a plan with possibly lower premiums and fewer restrictions.

Friendly Caller Program

The Isabella County Commission on Aging offers Friendly Calling service to Isabella County older adults and their families. The Friendly Calling program is available to any older adult who would like or benefit from a daily telephone call. Calls can be temporary while recuperating from an illness, or calls can be arranged on a permanent basis. Older individuals do not need to be homebound. Perhaps they are isolated and would just like someone to say hello to them each day.
