Welcome to the December 2006 Seniors Digest
Have you thawed out yet? Winter doesn’t officially begin for another few weeks, but we have already experienced cold temperatures, and plenty of snow and ice. This on the heels of the wettest month in Seattle history! It’s a good thing most holiday events are held indoors.
During this cold season, if you or someone you know is having trouble paying for energy bills, see “The Heat is on for Seniors Thanks to BenefitsCheckUp” in this issue to find out whether you qualify for assistance.
Then, read on to "Foodborne Illness and Older Adults: 10 Myths and Facts." Sharing delicious holiday meals with family and friends is a December tradition—so brush up on your safe food handling practices to avoid a less-than-merry holiday!
Also in this issue:
- Medicare Part D Open Enrollment Period Ends December 31
- Mind Your Mind: Free Brain-Health Workshop for Seniors
- "Bundle Up!" Word Scramble
