Medicare Patrol Volunteers Cut Fraud and Waste

Want to provide an invaluable service to your community? Join Spectrum Generations volunteer Senior Medicare Patrol team and make a difference by cutting down on Medicare fraud and abuse. 

Spectrum Generations, in collaboration with Legal Services for the Elderly, is holding its next 3-day Senior Medicare Patrol training from 8am to 2pm on Thursdays, August 7, 14 and 28 at Spectrum Generations Southern Midcoast ADRC Center located at 35 Union Street in Brunswick (with-in the PeoplePlus building).

This “train the trainer” workshop will give you the tools you need to teach people how to navigate the complex Medicare system and prepare you to do public presentations, provide individualized counseling on Medicare Part D, and in general educate the public about Medicare fraud and abuse.  Breakfast snacks and refreshments will be served,  but we ask that you “brown bag it” for lunch.

Overcome the Fear of Falling

Overcome the Fear of Falling

 

Spectrum Generations is offering its next A Matter of Balance class at its Muskie Center located at 38 Gold Street in Waterville beginning August 5th.  It will run twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) for 4 weeks from 12 to 2pm. 

A Matter of Balance is designed to benefit older adults age 60 and older still living in their own homes or community residences who are concerned about falls, have sustained a fall in the past, or restrict activities because of concerns about falling.  Spectrum Generations offers these classes to help older adults learn practical coping strategies to address the risk of falling and their fears.  Participants in the program learn: to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals for increasing activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercises to increase strength and balance.
