Learn about Medicare

Are you already in Medicare but still having questions about your coverage options? There are Medicare counselors trained to help you understand your choices and options. Attend a presentation designed to provide you with an understanding of Medicare and the choices available to you.

Having trouble paying your Medicare premium or related medical expenses?  Find out if you may qualify for Federal assistance with your medical expenses.

Call the office to register for a presentation by April 7. The first presentation is April 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Luncheon program

Every Tuesday at 11:30 a.m., over 50 seniors gather to have lunch together in our town hall board room. Participants may order the featured hot meal listed on our calendar, or opt for a cold tuna salad plate or cold fruit plate.

Orders must be placed with our office by 10:30 a.m. the day before the luncheon and the suggested donation is only $3. Some decide to bring their own lunch, which is also fine.

Following the lunch, many seniors play bingo, other board games, shoot a game of pool, or simply converse with friends. Please think about joining. We would love to have you. Transportation is available.

Drivers needed

If you are interested in volunteering once in a while for about an hour-and-a-half this is an opportunity for you. Meals are delivered to Guilderland/Altamont residents weekdays. Please call 356-1980, ext. 1048 for further information.

Oldest grad: Florence Remley Zimmer, a 1931 graduate of Altamont High School, is 102 years old. She lived in Berne for 90 years or so before moving to Atria Guilderland. She loves to play cards and do handiwork, like the hot pad she hooked, displayed here. She enjoyed quilting with others to raise money for the Hilltowns Seniors and the Knox Reformed Church. Now she knits hats for preemie babies at Albany Medical Center and does other handiwork. Her two daughters — Sandra Fuller of Westmere and Priscilla Carman, who lives on Carman Road in Guilderland — and others provide her with the material for her projects.
