MEDICARE OPEN ENROLLMENT IS UNDERWAY
Generations is now taking appointments for SHIP (State Health Insurance Plan) counseling to assist you in choosing your best option for your Medicare supplement. The best supplemental plan for you could change from year to year depending on your health, medications, etc. Do not assume that the plan that you have always had is the best for you. Let us help you take a look at all of your options, and then YOU decide which plan that you want to go with. This is a FREE service provided by
Generations. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with one of our SHIP counselors, please call us at 1-800-742-9002.

BUILD A BASKET
This holiday season, Generations is sponsoring its 9th annual Build a Basket project to help provide for the basic needs of Generations’ clients while bringing them some holiday cheer. Generations serves older adults in Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties. These older adults are on fixed incomes and often cannot afford the everyday necessities that many of us take for granted. A total of 782 baskets were turned in last year and delivered to individuals in need.
This project is open to schools, churches, businesses and individuals and involves purchasing a plastic laundry basket and filling it with items such as dish soap, deodorant and toothpaste.
Some individuals decorate their baskets to make them more festive. Baskets must be completed by December 16. Participants will be given a drop off location prior to that date. Generations’ staff and volunteers will deliver the gift baskets to the clients.
To register for the project and to receive a complete list of basket items, contact Alma Kramer by calling 800-742-9002 or 812-888-4527 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
