Benefits Wheel game in Wheatland

Event Date: June 6, 2017 Event Time: 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Event Location: McCarty Senior Center, U.S. Highway 54 in Wheatland

There will be an emphasis on the benefits available to help seniors stretch their household budgets during a short program.
Benefits Counselor Penny Humphrey will explain Care Connection’s Benefits Enrollment Center, which offers screenings and enrollment assistance in many money-savings programs for seniors.
“The state and federal governments offer many programs to help seniors pay for health care, medications, utilities, food, energy and even phones,” Humphrey said. “However, many people don’t even know these options exist. That’s why we are reaching out to people in our area to make the programs known and to help with applications.”
Humphrey’s presentation includes an opportunity for people to test their knowledge by spinning a wheel and answering questions for prizes.
“We want to make the whole process fun for everyone, too,” Humphrey said.
