“Facing the Holidays After a Loss” Presentation

Part of the “Living Through Loss” Series at Blanchard Valley Hospital……..

The third presentation of the “Living through Loss” series will be held on Monday, November 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and titled “Facing the Holidays After a Loss.” This presentation will take place in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital located at 1900 South Main Street in Findlay.

“Facing the Holidays After a Loss” will focus on how the bereaved can navigate the holiday season while enduring the pain of losing a loved one. Theresa Scherger, social worker at Bridge Home Health and Hospice, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, will be presenting with an opportunity for discussion to follow.

“Living Through Loss” is a nine-month educational series that focuses on the issues surrounding the death of a loved one. Each monthly presentation is open to the public and registration is not required. Presentations are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital. Presentations provide information related to the grief process and offer opportunities for discussion. Although the thought of speaking up in a group can be intimidating, many attendees find the discussion helpful as they discover their questions and concerns are similar to others. A bereavement expert is available to speak with attendees in private following the presentation.

This series is sponsored by Bridge Home Health and Hospice. For questions, to learn upcoming dates or to have a full program brochure sent to you, please contact Jill Gilgenbach, bereavement coordinator, at 419.423.5351 or email bridge@bvhealthsystem.org.

Medicare Open Enrollment 101

Know your options and get free help…….

(Family Features) As autumn progresses, it’s important to keep your health in mind. Medicare’s fall open enrollment period is the time for you to review your plan options and make any changes to your Medicare coverage.

Maybe you have a new prescription that is not covered by your current drug plan or you have a new health condition. To ensure you get the most from Medicare in 2019, you should research your health and drug plan options during Medicare open enrollment.

Open enrollment closes Dec. 7. Changes made during this time will take effect on Jan. 1, 2019.

During open enrollment, you can adjust your Medicare health or drug coverage:

  • Change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage Plan or vice versa
  • Switch between Medicare Advantage Plans
  • Join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan
  • Switch your current drug plan
  • Drop Medicare prescription drug coverage

Your Medicare plan options depend on where you live. To find available health or drug plans, you can look in your 2019 Medicare & You handbook or visit medicare.gov. If you’re unsure where to start, your local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) can help.

SHIPs offer free one-on-one assistance year-round to Medicare-eligible beneficiaries, their families and caregivers. Trained counselors in your area can help you understand Medicare benefits and the enrollment process. Assistance is personalized, so SHIP counselors can help you find available options that best meet your unique needs.

The program – funded by the Administration for Community Living, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – provides services in every state as well as in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Don’t wait until the last minute. Take care of your health now and find your SHIP at shiptacenter.org, or contact Medicare directly at 1-800-633-4227 or medicare.gov. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
