Age-Friendly Expo and Dialogue
Our Age-Friendly Health Expo is set to take place on Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fremont Senior Center and Central Park (Lake Elizabeth). We are getting great responses from exhibitors and once again expect about 100 exhibitors to attend the event and over 2,000 participants. Please note that over 75 people volunteer to assist us with the event, and that includes over 30 interpreters to assist you in getting your message to those who may not speak English or who are deaf or hard of hearing. If you would like to be an exhibitor, call (510) 574-2063 or email Dr. Raymond Grimm at email@example.com
The Age-Friendly Fremont Community Dialogue will take place on Wednesday, April 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Teen Center, 39770 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont. As the City of Fremont is a member of the World Health Organization's age-friendly global network, we are interested in how you think an age-friendly community is a livable community for all! Please join us and tell us what you think.
Beware of New Medicare Card Phone Scams
WeÕre getting several reports about a phone scam where beneficiaries are told that new Medicare cards are coming in the mail. This is true, but, the scammers say that before the cards come, the beneficiary needs to get a temporary card, which costs between $5 and $50, and you need to give them some personal information. This is NOT TRUE.
¥ Your new card will be mailed to you. Medicare will not call you about your new card or number.
¥ The new cards are free. There is no cost to you.
¥ Update your current address with Social Security at: ssa.gov/myaccount
or call 1 (800) 772-1213.
¥ Your new Medicare card will not include your Social Security number.
¥ Remember, youÕre getting a new number and a new card with the same benefits.
¥ After you receive your new card, shred your old card.
If you or someone you know comes across such Medicare related phone scams, call the Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-855-613-7080. If you need help with your Medicare, call the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) at 1 (800) 434-0222, or, visit cahealthadvocates.org
