On Thursday, March 7, at 10 a.m., join in to discuss the high points and options that open up when you are ‘Turning 65.’ Speakers from Stanislaus County Aging and Veterans Services Medicare HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) will help attendees understand Medicare benefit coverage and limitations, explore options, and make informed decisions about this important coverage. This program is free and no sign-up is necessary.

The second program in the series will focus on a topic that has or will touch most people in one way or another at some time in their lives. ‘Understanding Alzheimer’s And Dementia Workshop’ will be of interest to anyone who is a family member, caregiver, or friend to someone facing this devastating disease. Join in at the Oakdale Library on Thursday, March 14, at 10 a.m., as a guest speaker from the Alzheimer’s Association will help those in attendance understand risk factors and stages, current research and treatments available for some symptoms, and Alzheimer’s Association resources available with help and support.

Finally, on Thursday, March 21 at 10 a.m., the library will offer a free ‘Estate Planning Seminar: Protect Your Family. Protect Your Assets.’ Attorney Julie Richardson of Legal Pathways will explain legal issues involved so you can make intelligent, informed decisions. Whether you are young and just starting to think about the future “down the road,” or older and looking to safeguard what you have worked your whole life to build, you will want to examine the benefits possible with creating your Family Estate Plan.

Please plan to come to the Oakdale Library, 151 S. First Ave., for any or all of these free programs. Those interested can call the Library, 209-847-4204, for more information.
