Those are: In-Home Respite, which provides relief for 24-7 caregivers; Meals on Wheels, delivering a nutritious meal each day; Roving Pantry, a grocery shopping service which delivers to your front door. In-Home Respite and Roving Pantry currently have a limited number of openings, so don’t hesitate to call soon!

FREE screening for varicose leg veins available
Is walking sometimes difficult? Do your legs ache and feel heavy? Do the veins in your leg(s) bulge and look unsightly? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might have a problem with varicose veins. They are enlarged blood vessels in your legs (usually greater than 1 millimeter in diameter) that often bulge and appear “ropey” or entwined. They occur when the wall of the vein weakens or collapses. When the near-surface veins are subjected to high pressure, they dilate and elongate, which causes them to develop the purple-blue color associated with varicose veins.The affected veins cause blood to flow back into the leg, causing symptoms such as pain, throbbing, aching, tiredness, heaviness, cramps, burning, itching, restless legs and swelling, explained Paul Cheatum, MD of Innovative Vein. He is trained in phlebology and is a registered vascular technologist.Varicose veins can also cause blood clots, thrombophlebitis, pigmentation and eczema. If left untreated, they may lead to more serious conditions such as bleeding veins and leg ulcers. Varicose veins develop gradually and progressively and tend to increase people age, he said. An ultrasound evaluation can help determine if there are any leaky valves or blood clots in the veins. Ultrasound also provides a map of the veins underlying your skin and measures blood flow in both deep and superficial veins.That evaluation will enable the doctor to prescribe the appropriate vein treatment.

RETIREMENT Retiring? What you should know about Social Security By Bea Eisenbarth Every birthday deserves celebration, but some seem a little more special than others. Think of a baby’s first
birthday. Sweet 16. The “Big 4-0.” Then, before you know it, along comes 65. This last milestone is especially important to retirees. For nearly half a century, American workers looked to 65 as the age at which they could stop working and finally reap their full retirement benefits under the Social Security Act of 1935. Today, however, the full retirement age is now 66 or 67, depending on
when you were born. In 1983, Congress changed the law to increase the retirement age gradually over a 22-year period, citing improvements in the health of older people and increases in average life expectancy. If you’ve contributed enough to the Social Security system through payroll taxes, you still can claim your retirement benefits at 65 — or 62, 63, or 64, for that matter — but your monthly
payments will be permanently reduced. To find out your full retirement age, visit www.socialsecurity. gov/planners/retire/ageincrease.html. For help deciding which age is right for you, read When to Start Receiving Retirement Benefits at www.socialsecurity. gov/pubs/EN-05-10147.pdf. We have also made applying for See next page

ASSISTED LIVING From previous page benefits easier than ever. You can do it online! To apply for benefits, please go to www.socialsecurity. gov/applyforbenefits. That said, age 65 should still factor in prominently as you prepare for retirement and a stable financial future, because that’s when most American workers first become eligible for Medicare health insurance coverage. To see if you’ve earned enough credits through work to qualify for
Medicare at age 65, view your Social Security Statement online using your personal My Social Security account. Create or log on to your account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. If you’re already receiving Social Security benefits before age 65, we’ll automatically enroll you in Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (supplemental medical insurance) effective the first day of the month you turn 65. Watch your mailbox a few months
before your birthday for your Medicare card. Otherwise, three months before your 65th birthday, you can apply for Medicare Parts A and B online at www.socialsecurity. gov/applyforbenefits. Your Initial Enrollment Period for Medicare starts three months before your 65th birthday month and continues for three months after. To learn more about Medicare enrollment and coverage, please visit www.socialsecu-
rity.gov/medicare. To learn more about Medicare coverage, visit www.medicare.gov. Social Security is with you through life’s journey, on your first birthday and the many more that follow.
