Senior Center News: Plans in the works for community potluck dinner

By Tammy Fager
Senior Center Director

On Saturday, Oct. 5, we had Quartermania at the Osage County Senior Center and it was a lot of fun. The weather was not very pleasant outside. Our turnout was not great, but everyone including the vendors had a good time.

Here are some upcoming activities to put on your calendar.

  • Oct. 10 – We will have biscuits and gravy at 8:30 a.m.
  • Oct. 14 – Medicare rep will be here; set up an appointment to meet with the rep. Note: Medicare specialists or representatives are usually associated with one or all of the private insurances. Please make sure before you sign up that everything you use or may need in the immediate future is covered.
  • Oct. 16 – Birthday lunch day.
  • Oct 17 – Hermes will be doing toenails (every nine weeks by appointment only). As of this writing we have one open spot. If more spots needed, they will consider a 2nd day.
  • Oct 18 – We are having a blood drive. Remember we are challenging all Osage County business that want to participate – have their customers give the business’ name. The business with the most donors will win a traveling trophy.
  • Oct. 22 – Medicare rep will be here; set up appointment.
  • Oct. 25 – We are having an Osage County Senior Center potluck dinner. Everyone is welcome; they are just asked to bring a covered dish. I still have not heard from the attorney general’s office to confirm whether they will make it. They have been asked to talk about robo calls and telephone scams.

What is Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C)?

A Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private insurance company that contracts with Medicare to provide Original Medicare (Parts A and B) benefits. Most Medicare Advantage plans can combine hospital, doctor, and drug coverage in one plan, and may include extra benefits not offered by Original Medicare.
