July 16th at 10:00 Alzheimer Support Group

Every 3rd Tuesday of each month

Family Support Groups are always free and open to the community. Support groups provide families and caregivers with the emotional support and education they need to better understand Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Support groups are designed for families and friends. Attendance is not recommended for persons with dementia.

Our volunteer support group facilitators receive specialized training about Alzheimer’s disease and group facilitation techniques, as well as ongoing support and evaluation. 



Medicare Outreach Program

By appointment only

The Administration for Community Living, Office of Healthcare Information and Counseling manages the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) grant. The SHIP mission is to empower, educate, and assist Medicare-eligible individuals, their families, and caregivers through objective outreach, counseling, and training, to make informed health insurance decisions that optimize access to care and benefits. The SHIP vision is to be the known and trusted community resource for Medicare information.

SHIPs conduct outreach by providing presentations, distributing information, conducting enrollment events, and participating in health fairs, senior fairs, and other community events. SHIP outreach helps to inform groups and individuals about Medicare benefits, coverage rules, written notices and forms, appeal rights and procedures, and more.

SHIPs provide free, in-depth, unbiased, one-on-one health insurance counseling and assistance to Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers. SHIPs assist people in obtaining coverage through options such as Original Medicare (Parts A & B), Medicare Advantage (Part C), Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D), and Medicare Supplement (Medigap). SHIPs also assist beneficiaries with limited income to apply for programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program and Extra Help/Low Income Subsidy, which help pay for or reduce healthcare costs.

SHIPs recruit and train both volunteer and in-kind counselors to provide program services. SHIP counselors are highly trained and certified to help Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers with:

  • Informing about Medicare Advantage, Medicare Prescription Drug coverage, and Medigap plan comparison or enrollments;
  • Explaining how supplemental insurance options (e.g. insurance plans for retirees) work with Medicare;
  • Providing information on long-term care insurance; and
  • Refering beneficiaries to agencies such as the Social Security Administration and State Medicaid offices for additional assistance.
