Sheridan Senior Center: November is National Caregiver Month

November is National Family Caregiver Month, and the Sheridan Senior Center is looking to spread awareness about a large group of individuals who provide care for others.

Stella Montano, family caregiver director at the Senior Center, says that unfortunately this group isn't recognized every month.

Janet Korpela coordinates in-home services, she explains a little of what they offer.

Montano says its important that caregivers take care of themselves as well, because they are in charge of taking care of someone constantly

Montano reminded those with questions about Medicare Part D plans to visit he Senior Center, where representatives will help with paperwork and direct questions to the right people.

Medicare Part D registration began earlier than usual this year, and will close earlier on December 7.
