A representative from the Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging will be available at the Darien Senior Center Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 10 a.m. to provide a presentation on Medicare.

The annual enrollment period for Medicare beneficiaries to evaluate and make changes begins Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 7.

A representative from Bankers Life and Casualty Co. will answer questions regarding long-term care at the senior center on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 11 a.m.

The need for long-term care services can occur at any age as a result of an accident, injury or illness. Services can sometimes last longer than patients and their families expect. Long-term care can also have a serious effect on the health and financial well-being of your children and family if they must provide your ongoing care themselves.

A complimentary lunch will be served immediately after the presentation. Register by Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 203-656-7455.
