Elder Care's mission is to ensure that mature adults live happy, healthy independent lives by linking them with the vital services necessary to maintain maximum independence in their home environments.

Through our programs we offer a broad range of services to seniors and their caregivers including: case management, adult day health services, caregiver support groups, home care services, specialized primary healthcare, physical therapy, and a social networking group.


Senior Strategies Seminar                                 

Elder Care will close out the 2017 Senior Strategies Seminar Series on September 26 with Mindi Henry, APRN-CNP, ACHPN and her presentation titled, “Palliative Care – what is it and why does it matter?” Learn about how palliative care can make a difference when your loved one suffers from a chronic or terminal illness. Henry will share insight and understanding to a subject unfamiliar to many.

 

The seminar is open to the public and will be held 9:00am-10:00am at Elder Care, 1223 Swan Drive. Registration is recommended for these free seminars to ensure seating is available. Please call 918-336-8500.

 

Flu Shot Clinic                                                     

Following the Senior Strategies Seminars, Elder Care's annual Flu Shot Clinic will begin on Saturday, September 30 and continue each Tuesday in October. Times are 9am-noon and 1-4pm each flu shot clinic date.

 

Medicare Part D Counseling                               

Elder Care is offering free counseling assistance with Medicare Part D enrollment beginning October 16 through December 7.

 

Elder Care has four certified Medicare Part D counselors who will be available by appointment only. The appointments will typically last 45 minutes. Any interested participant will need to bring a current Medicare card, list of current medications, an identification card and if interested in applying for extra assistance to help pay for drug costs, a statement of current income and asset information.

 

Seniors should also ensure they are reading all mail they receive regarding current prescription drug plans. Some plans may not be offering the same services in 2018, which could result in having no plan at all as of January 1, 2018.

 

Appointments for Medicare Part D counseling may be made by calling Roni at Elder Care for scheduling 918-336-8500. For those interested in checking their plans on-line, information is available at www.medicare.gov.
