POWER OF AGE Finding a new purpose

local seniors age with grace, resolve BY KATIE PARSONS Baby boomers continue to make impactful change in American society as they age, affecting everything from how the workforce operates to how people shop. An estimated 46 million Americans age 65 or older are living in the United States and the Centers for Disease Control forecasts that number to more than double to 98 million by 2060. As Americans are living longer, they are finding ways to reinvent themselves at each new life phase. The image of aging in a rocking chair on a front porch, aimlessly watching live pass by, is an outdated one. More seniors are finding a new lease on life as they age, with results that benefit themselves and society. By 2022, for example, 27 percent of men over the age of 65 and 20 percent of women in the age bracket still will be an active part of the labor force. Careers aren’t the only way older Americans are finding purpose as they age. Volunteerism, travel and looking after younger members of the family tree are just a few

other ways for some seniors to keep investing in their own lives and enriching those around them. While the means vary by person, the benefits of purposeful aging are universal. A study conducted by two psychology professors found that people who had a sense of purpose posed a 15 percent lower risk of death — and age didn’t play into the results. The same increase of survival was seen across age groups, from people in their 20s to those in their 70s and older. Emerging research also is finding that those who retain welldefined purpose in their lives as they get older tend to do so with better health and a higher sense of satisfaction for life. The Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging recently published findings that show that people who maintain personal identity through scheduled activities slow mental and physical decline. We found some local boomers and seniors who are using this phase to live their best lives. Here are some of their stories.


Ph.D. BIKER directs her course BY JEFF NAVIN When Cathy Cady retires, she vows to direct the future path of her life. That will be easy to do on her Harley. “I’ve been riding for the past 10 years,’’ said the 62-year-old Cady, who is the executive director of the career center at Eastern Florida State College. “My brother had a Harley, and I always liked to ride on it. One day, he said that I should learn to drive one. As a woman, we usually are a passenger. That’s changing now.’’ Cady, a native of Orange County who received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida, is a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association. She also studied at Regis University in Denver and earned her Ph.D. from Capella University. The Baytree resident likes to run in 5K races around the area. Power walking is her training routine. “I’ll easily do 5 to 10 miles a week but, when I’m more into it or training for a race, I’ll do 15 to 20 miles a week.’’ Cady tries to eat better each day. “I try to eat greens — dark, leafy vegetables — and less fat. Occasionally, I’ll eat a sweet roll.’’ When she’s not playing pickleball or enjoying a power walk, the natureoriented Cady loves hiking and the outdoors in general.

62 CATHY CADY

“I’m single and living the good life,’’ Cady said. “I love animals — especially my four cats. They keep me crazy. They have such diverse personalities.’’

It was not just PUPPY LOVE BY JEFF NAVIN

Five years ago, Gary Thayer received a Facebook request that changed his life forever.

48 GARY THAYER

BY JEFF NAVIN When Maureen Thayer gives advice as a physical trainer, there’s never a reason to doubt the sincerity. “Basically my entire life, I’ve eaten healthy,’’ said the 53-year-old native of Portland, Maine, who moved to Merritt Island with her husband, Gary, just before Hurricane Irma hit Brevard County in September. “I never eat sugar and I haven’t eaten fried foods since I was a teenager. There’s no smoking and no drinking except for the occasional glass of red wine. I’m Italian. I never have a beer.’’

| Boomer Guide 2018

Thayer had a baby crush on his babysitter, Maureen, when he was 8 years old and she was 13. The crush still was there when he was 17 and he asked her out on a date. She said no, and that was the last time there would be contact between the two for 26 years. “I’ve wanted to marry her my entire life,’’ said Thayer, 48. “I really didn’t think it was puppy love.’’ Ten years ago, Thayer saw another dream become a reality when he enlisted in the Army at the age of 38. He gave up his Thayer has been a personal trainer for the past 20 years and either a bartender or waitress for the past 38 years. “I know how to make a drink, but I don’t drink it,’’ Thayer said. “I talk to people all day long. It’s not boring or monotonous. I’m having a conversation all day. As a fitness trainer, I get to help people of any age and size.’’

job as a painting contractor to serve the country.

That experience might have saved Thayer’s life.

Thayer almost joined the Army, just like his father, at the age of 17. But his plan of earning his GED and enlisting did not come to fruition when he fell a couple of points shy on the test for what the Army required at the time.

“I had smoked for 20 years and I had to get my wind back,’’ Thayer said. “I became an AIT Generator mechanic when they sent me to Fort Hood. That’s when they found out that I had diabetes. I probably would never have known if it weren’t for the Army. I was so scared.’’

At 34, he almost enlisted when the age limit was raised to 42 after 9/11. “I chickened out,’’ Thayer said. Four years later, he went from being a chicken to being called Pops. “In boot camp, I was older than the drill sergeant,’’ Thayer said. “Everyone called me Pops. They all loved me, and it was quite an experience.’’

Thayer no longer drinks Pepsi and he has almost eliminated milk and coffee ice cream from his diet. “Maureen has been so great for me,’’ Thayer said. “We ride mountain bikes together, and she always prepares two sets of meals for us.’’

eat salmon three days a week.’’ Five years ago, she performed for Red Hot & Ladylike Dance Studio’s burlesque dance team in shows around New England. Thayer has two adult children — Samantha, 28, and Jak, 21.

Thayer loves to do Tae Bo, kickboxing and lowimpact aerobics. As a child, she studied dance at the Boston Conservatory.

“I sleep 10 hours a night and I always have,’’ Thayer said. “When my children were young, I napped when they napped. I think a great sex life keeps you young. That’s part of who I am.’’

“I’m religious about my diet,’’ Thayer said. “I eat fish, vegetables, whole grains and fruit. I

Thayer also has a Shar Pei named Daisy, who likes to walk her a few times each day.

SIMPLEST WORDS often solve problems of life

POWER OF AGE

BY JEFF NAVIN Barba Pittman doesn’t have a secret diet to defy age. She does have a magic word. “I’m not afraid to say I’m sorry,’’ said the 72-year-old Pittman, who was born and raised in Titusville. “I am a giving person. I will listen. Even if I feel like I did the right thing and I’m upset, I will still say I’m sorry.’’ Pittman has been married to her husband, Willie, for 53 years. “I try to be happy and do the things I love to do — travel, read, sewing and dancing,’’ said Pittman, who has one daughter. “I don’t exercise, but I do read every day. I’m a member of a book club. I just don’t eat a lot of sweets, but I’m not the type to gain weight.’’ Pittman was a logistics analyst at Kennedy Space Center for 16 years and she worked 24 years for the Brevard County Commissioners as an engineer technician. She retired 10 years ago. When she’s not quilting, Pittman volunteers for her church, Bethlehem Christian. She was the financial secretary there for 25 years. Pittman also is a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She also used to volunteer for SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders). Two trips to Europe, where she and her husband visited Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Germany, France and England, have been fun. But, another vacation turned out to be her favorite. “We went out west to seven states and Yellowstone and saw all the parks,’’ Pittman said. “We were gone 18 days with a group. We were in South Dakota and Las Vegas. It was the best trip we’ve ever taken.’’ Trips to Alaska and Hawaii have helped to whittle the amount of states in the United States she has not visited to a mere four. “Too many older people just sit around and watch too much TV,’’ Pittman said. “They don’t move around and they don’t travel. That’s wrong.’’

FINANCIAL SECURITY

bolsters active, comfortable retirement

64 JACK BELBEY

BY JEFF NAVIN Jack Belbey is quick to credit advice from his parents for establishing a foundation for a comfortable retirement. “My parents drilled into me, ‘Save, save, save’ when I was younger.’’ said the 64-yearold retired business software developer. “I’m financially secure. My philosophy is to earn a dollar and save that dollar. Then, you won’t have to earn it again. So many people have never saved any money and they’ll have to work forever.’’ Belbey wakes up early at 6:30 or 7 a.m. each day and goes to the gym after breakfast. Afternoons vary with a trip to the beach or the community pool. More often than not, he reads both in the afternoon and at night. “I had no time to read when I was younger and working six days a week,’’ Belbey said. “There are so many classics that I have not read like Hemingway and others.’’ Belbey also runs three miles every other day. “I’ve knocked 5Ks off of my bucket list,’’ said Belbey, who grew up in New Jersey and lived in various states during his working career. “It’s important to learn how to deal with stress in a positive way and not let it get to you.’’ Eventually, Belbey plans to get busier with volunteering or working part time. “I might get restless, but there’s some islands that I need to see first,’’ Belbey said. “I’ve been to Greece and Crete when I spent 2½ years in Germany in the service, but I’ve yet to see any islands in the Caribbean yet. I’d love to go to the Bahamas, Aruba and the Virgin Islands. All those islands are appealing. I’d also love to visit the Mayan pyramids.’’ But, with his Irish roots, Ireland is at the top of his list for a dream vacation.

DANCING brings out inner beauty BY JEFF NAVIN Joyce Reilly Clautice has danced since she was a young child. In 1999, she won the Ms. Senior America Pageant in Las Vegas. Now, Clautice is happy to entertain seniors as part of performances put on by the Cameo Club. “I love entertaining seniors who are lonely,’’ Clautice said. “How we grow in life is helping them see happiness and light at the end of each day.’’ On that magical day in 1999, Clautice impressed the judges with her personal interview and her original ballet to “Chariots of Fire’’ in the talent competition. “I told them that the clothing doesn’t make the woman, it’s the woman that makes the clothing,’’ Clautice said. “I just wanted to show my love of dance and inner beauty.’’ After winning the pageant, Clautice traveled to 14 other states to perform as the reigning queen. Clautice and her husband, a submarine captain in the Naval Ordinance Test Unit or NOTU, moved 23 times during his military career. On one stop, they lived in Cocoa Beach from 1979 until 1983. During that stint in Cocoa Beach, Clautice taught at Freedom 7 Elementary School. Kelly Slater, an 11-time World Surfing Champion, was one of her students.

POWER OF AGE

“Instead of teaching, I should have been helping people,’’ Clautice said. “I love seniors and volunteering. Seniors have taught me rather than I helping them.’’ Clautice, who moved to Cocoa Beach permanently in 2014 after being a winter resident since 2001, says she will eat everything except Brussels sprouts. She also tries to avoid eating sweets. “Thank God for life — I’ve always felt that way,’’ she said. “I love to have a glass of wine with my husband on our dock in Cocoa Beach.’’

80 JOYCE REILLY CLAUTICE

“I saw him when he came back and he was painting rocks with some special education students,’’ Clautice said. “I told him he’s still the gentle person he always was.’’ Despite being a teacher for 30 years, Clautice says she might have been more effective in another field.

LIFE’S IDEAL JOURNEY filled with past pleasures BY JEFF NAVIN Lisa Hollaender hopes that her blog — midlifeconfidential.com — can make a difference. At 51, Hollaender has a lot to say. “It was a goal at 50 to blog about those entering the middle years,’’ said Hollaender, a native of Washington, D.C., who moved to Viera from Orlando last year. “I want to take the reader on a journey where they don’t have to give up the things that they used to do and love. For example, the fashion industry tells us that after 50, ‘please don’t wear this!’ I want to tackle and defy the stereotypes of aging.’’ When she’s not writing about issues on her blog, Hollaender could be walking a dog. She walks an average of four dogs a day for 30 minutes each in her dog walking business.

“Folks, when they become seniors, should look into getting a pet if they don’t have one,’’ said Hollaender, who has a 15-yearold son. “Puppies might be more energetic and not good on the leash. Older dogs know the walking routine. In 18 years of doing this, I’ve only been bitten once. And, that was by a toy poodle. Pit bulls have never touched me.’’ On days off, Hollaender tries to take a power walk for at least 30 to 45 minutes. “My weakness is my sweet tooth,’’ Hollaender said. “I do eat a handful of blueberries and blackberries every day. The darker berries are the best. They’re full of antioxidants and anti-carcinogens.’’


POWER OF AGE

DON’T FORGET TO LAUGH despite life’s challenges BY JEFF NAVIN Paula Murgo-Shaffer jokingly calls her life a movie meant for the Lifetime Channel. It wasn’t funny when she came to Brevard County 4½ years ago after her 30-year marriage ended with a divorce in Colorado. “Upon arrival, I had this weird ear blockage and ear infection,’’ said MurgoShaffer, who grew up in Massachusetts and lived in Palm Beach before moving to Colorado. “It was diagnosed as a brain tumor and I went to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville to have radiation surgery. They’ll monitor it for 10 years, but everything looks good thus far.’’ Cocoa Beach has turned out to be a good place to recover and start a new life. “I’m a water girl and I craved to come back to this weather and the water,’’ said the 58-year-old Murgo-Shaffer, who still is an avid Boston Red Sox fan despite all the moves in her life. “I love the casual atmosphere. I try to eat well and take care of my skin. I just want to live a good, clean life.’’ Besides walking her cocker spaniel and poodle mix dog, Murgo-Shaffer likes to dance, exercise and run. She also loves local theater and keeping track of what’s being performed at Cocoa Village, Riverside Theater and the Henegar Center. She also enjoys professional concerts in Orlando. “Laughter and attitude is so important,’’ Murgo-Shaffer said. “I’ve met so many nice folks and good neighbors here.’’

DON’T FOLLOW STEREOTYPES BY JEFF NAVIN In retirement, Diana Sody is not afraid to hammer away the stereotype of what a woman can and can’t do. She’s part of a volunteer team of women who build houses for Habitat for Humanity. “It’s very rewarding working with the women that I work with,” said Sody, who moved to Viera three years ago from King of Prussia, Pa. “I need challenges and being out of my comfort zone. I’m meeting wonderful people, and I’m giving back to the community that has given me so

store as possible, Sody prefers to park as far away as possible.

Sody, who played tennis when she was younger, has made the transition to playing pickleball. She also rides her single-speed Huffy twice a week for at least five miles.

“I walk as often as I can,’’ Sody said. “I deliberately park at the end of the parking lot so I can walk. The little things add up in a cardiovascular sense.’’

“I eat in moderation — there’s no need to deny yourself,’’ said Sody, who worked in various healthcarerelated positions in Pennsylvania. “I see no value in drinking soda. Water is the best beverage. I’ll have the occasional glass of wine.’’

Sody loves living in the house her son found for her in Heritage Isle. He works for Lockheed Martin in Cape Canaveral.

While most people fight traffic in parking lots to get as close to the

“I try to stay away from negative people,’’ Sody said. “I want to surround myself with positivethinking people. It’s contagious. I like a good intellectual exchange.’’

STAY POSITIVE & HEALTHY

POWER OF AGE

BY JEFF NAVIN Understanding the cyclical nature of life just might be the healthiest approach to aging. Just ask 62-year-old Ester Premate, who was born in Croatia when it still was a part of communist Yugoslavia. “You have to be positive — everyone goes through something,’’ said Premate, who is a breast cancer survivor. “It doesn’t matter who you are, how much money you have or what your religion is.’’ Premate uses olive oil abundantly for both cooking and for salads in her daily diet. She also eats a lot of fruits. “Your body is like a car, and you have to be careful what you put into a car,’’ said Premate, who works for Essential Spa. “Your body is also like a house. When you’re living, the spirit is always here.’’ Last year, Premate was delighted to see her son graduate from the University of Central Florida with a degree in finance.

“I’m like Melania (Trump). I came here in 1993 beautiful, young and rich. In 1995, I had a boy. Now, I’m an old, sick and poor American. My mission is done; I’ve raised a good man.’’

ESTER PREMATE

CHALLENGE YOURSELF! BY JEFF NAVIN

Last year’s Mayors’ Fitness Challenge changed Pamela Williams’ life in a positive way. “I got into exercise and made a lot of new friends,’’ said Williams, a 58-year-old resident of Rockledge who grew up in Vermont. “I was walking, and I had never done a water aerobics class. I lost 19 pounds in just over 12 weeks.’’ After a day of work at Cape Canaveral Hospital as an operation room surgery scheduler, Williams has an exercise partner waiting at home. “My Border Collie will turn 16 in April,’’ said Williams, who has two adult children who live out of state. “Since she was a puppy, we usually walk a mile around the pond loop at Levitt Park. Pets are really important, especially if you’re single. It’s nice to come home to something.’’ In the fall of 2016, Williams enrolled in the initial class for the Rockledge Citizens’ Police Academy.

POWER OF AGE

COUPLES SHARE love of NASA, gym

BY JEFF NAVIN If Bill Larson sees a basketball and a nearby basket, odds are he’ll take a few shots. “It makes the workouts at the gym fun,’’ said Larson, who retired from NASA in 2012 and has worked as a contractor at times since then. “I loved basketball when I was young. I try to keep my muscle tone by working on the machines, and shooting a basketball is something I like to do. I can still shoot, but I can’t jump much.’’ There was a time that Terri Larson, 60, dreaded going to the gym with her husband. “The first time at the gym was very hard,’’ Terri Larson said. “It helps to have someone go with you. Once you get into a routine, it gets so much easier.’’ Bill Larson, 63, did aeronautical research for NASA in Hampton, Va. before the couple moved to Brevard County in 1989. “My father was part of the Apollo program, so I always wanted to work down here,’’ Larson said. “Kennedy is such an exciting place to work. Down here, it’s always something new. Things crop up and we go solve it.’’ Some of Larson’s favorite projects included working with wind tunnels, figuring out how to get propellant on the Moon and Mars as part of a gas station in space and looking at the south pole of the Moon to prospect for water and ice. Another fun project was the vomit comet and NASA’s studies on weightlessness. Terri Larson taught second, third and fourth grade at Tropical Elementary School on Merritt Island for 10 years. She also taught children in the gifted program. “One of my favorite memories as a retired teacher was to do a summer internship through NASA. During a special event, I was able to go up on the launch pad and shuttle.’’ Larson teaches a life group at Suntree United Methodist. “As you get older, you have to stay involved in the community,’’ Larson said. “It’s important to just have fun. I like to walk and I enjoy yard work. As far as nutrition, I drink lots of water.’’

GENEALOGY & HISTORY

Check with your librarian. The Titusville Public Library and the Melbourne Public Library have genealogy rooms staffed by volunteers from the local genealogy societies at specific times. The Central Brevard Library and Reference Center has the largest collection of references, begun in 1989, when the Brevard Genealogical Society received a room at the library in which to house Its materials. The library is staffed full time with a certified genealogist available for consultation. This collection specializes on the states east of the Mississippi with emphasis on Virginia, Pennsylvania, New England, military records and the southern states. Two extensive ancestry databases are available only at the Central Brevard Library and Reference Center, Melbourne Public Library and Titusville Public Library, including one with more than 1.2 billion records that is only accessible in the Genealogical Collection at the Central Library in Cocoa. Also the Central Brevard Library and Reference Center offers classes on genealogical topics and hosts the Brevard Genealogical Society’s extensive Beginning Genealogy Class.

Things that get better with age Things that get better with age can be seen in many things in life as classic as a glass of wine to a well-earned characteristic such as wisdom.

BY MUFFY BERLYN Aging need not be merely quantitative, but should be looked at qualitatively. As a ripening and maturing process, it can be applied to things as well as people.

And, aging well for people doesn’t mean to forgo wrinkles, but rather to get better in our understanding, relationships and attitudes through time. Here’s a reminder of things that get better with age.

WINE

Don’t whine! Wines age well because of fermentation when yeast consumes sugar and turns it into alcohol. A modest glass or two each evening helps people live longer according to a U.S. study done by the American College of Cardiology. Bottom’s up.

AGED CHEESE

Say fromage! From Cheddar to Gruyere to Gouda to Parmesan, when preserved in a cave or cellar for more than six months, out comes an aged cheese — sharp and hard or firm in texture. The taste is greatly enhanced.

WISDOM

Experience and acquired knowledge combine to form a potent mixture — wisdom. We know what others do not, nor can we merely explain it. What we have come to know in our hearts and minds forms a guiding personal truth and personal wisdom.

ATTITUDES

Like the rough edges of a rock that tumbles through a stream over time being smoothed into river rock, time can smooth and temper attitudes like nothing else. An attitude we held as a teenager seems trivial at the age of 60.

MUSIC

Whether it’s classical or rock that we prefer, when we hear a song from our youth that we listened to then, it only gets better with age as well as transports us through time. According to Psychology Today, songs evoke vivid memories — “The songs we love become woven into a neural tapestry entwined with the people, seasons and locations throughout our lifespan.”

ART

Art itself doesn’t improve with age, but our appreciation of the art does. And hence the value. From Van Gogh to Gauguin to Seurat to Monet, artists who had been rejected in their lifetimes now are equated with prices in the tens of millions for one work. While some art, like art our children and grandchildren produce, becomes more valuable on an emotional and sentimental level.

FRIENDSHIPS

70

As trust develops and time passes, friends become nearer and dearer. Our oldest friends can be said to be the dearest, and we often go to great lengths to keep those friendships alive. Other things that get better with age: trees, antique cars, favorite shirts, jeans, common sense, love, self confidence, stringed instruments, cast iron pans, whiskey and empathy. | Boomer Guide 2018

miles of Paradise

Do you have all the special friends and family members surrounding you that you would like to have? Why not send your folks from the North a copy of the 2018 Boomer Guide as a subtle hint that it’s time to move to Florida and get started living right.

SPACE CENTER

Living right means choosing a place to live that is low or no maintenance. It’s time to let others mow the grass and clear plugged toilets. The Space Coast is the perfect place to enjoy what used to be our Golden Years. These days, boomers have no interest in going quietly into their retirement years, and don’t call them senior citizens, even if they have reached the magical Medicare age. To keep our bodies healthy and functional through our last vibrant breath, more doctors, specialists, surgeons and other healthcare providers set up shop each year to target mature lifestyles. The Space Coast has the best medical community in existence, many providing services within the walls of carefree communities, with a plan for aging in place so you never have to relocate again. Listing information changes from time to time, if you have a change or notice a wrong number call us at 321-242-1235 and we will change it in our database and in our next issue. For more copies of the Boomer Guide, call 321-242-1235.

It’s what they do! Staffers at Cedar Creek Lifestyle Community on Merritt Island are committed to making sure every resident at the assistedliving facility feels like they’re family, Executive Director Jason Rodriguez says. “The day they move in, this becomes their home and they become part of our family,” said Rodriguez, who recently took over operations at Cedar Creek after years of experience in all aspects of health care in hospitals, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. “We’re taking this facility in a new direction. We want to showcase the changes, and increase the focus on family values.” Boasting 74 beautiful apartments ranging from studios to some very spacious

two bedroom units, Cedar Creek offers the amenities of a booming community while maintaining the family friendly and personal atmosphere that draws so many to Merritt Island. “Upon becoming a Cedar Creek resident, we offer a variety of options to meet their needs,” Rodriguez said, adding that other changes, like gourmet dishes made by culinary training chefs, also enhance the new Cedar Creek living style. “Our dietitians customized menus, and our chefs are constantly improving food quality. The culinary team focuses on producing quality, scratch dishes with only the freshest of ingredients.” The facility also continues to offer the finest nursing care, 24/7, along with everyday activities that entertain and provide residents with outlets of

their interests. The staff at Cedar Creek strives to meet and exceed the expectations and needs of all residents. Each resident can expect a personalized assessment to ensure the proper level of care is provided. “Once you’re here, you’re part of the family,” Rodriguez said. “It’s about life enrichment. If it’s not good enough for our personal family members, then it’s not good enough for our Cedar Creek family.” Cedar Creek has been carefully designed to provide

the maximum benefit to residents in every aspect of their daily lives, according to Rodriguez. Each resident is provided with trained staff, 24 hours a day, to assist with personal care, medication assistance, laundry and housekeeping services and maintenance services. All this and pet friendly, what more can you ask for. For more information, call Cedar Creek Lifestyle Community at 321-454-7768.

Why Are We Different?

Because we are the ONLY Retirement Community in Brevard County licensed to offer you a TRUE continuum of care. “When I came to Buena Vida, I fell in love with the place! I love socializing and being able to meet with so many different personalities. There are people who were in the military, doctors and business professionals. There is a ton of entertainment ranging from Bluegrass to Classical. I found a passion for watercolor painting. Marie, a resident and art teacher, teaches the class! Two years ago, I began running the Country Store. With no way to track inventory, our Residents Association bought the POS (Point of Sale) system. I knew nothing about POS systems, so I studied. I allocated time to train volunteers and I’m proud of how I was able to teach them. Now I pull reports and decide what inventory I need. The Buena Vida community feels like a big family where everyone is willing to help and I’m proud to be a part of this family.” —Bob Linder

BE ON THE LOOKOUT: SAFEGUARD YOUR IDENTITY – Identity theft can lead to serious problems with your credit, retirement benefits, taxes and finances. Identity thieves often target senior citizens. Do not give your private information to anyone you do not know. REPORT MEDICARE FRAUD – Some estimate that Medicare fraud costs taxpayers upwards of $60 billion a year. Medicare fraud wrongfully steals from senior citizens, but we can’t stop it if it’s not reported. If you need help dealing with Medicare fraud issues, please contact my office.
