Given the continuing rise of Covid cases, effective 1/11/22, Generations will be closed to the public for the remainder of January. Our intention is to re-open to the public on February 1.
Ed Savitsky, our APPRISE counselor, will answer your Medicare questions and help you make good health insurance decisions once you turn 65. This service is free and open to members of the community and typically takes place on the 1st Thursday of the month at Generations. Check the newsletter and current calendar for upcoming appointment times. Participants must register in advance. Call Social Services at 215-723-1930.
