Creating a calm and welcoming #home can begin with appealing to your sense of smell, especially around the holidays!

A great way is to simmer your favorite scents on the cooktop. I add water, bring it to a boil, and uncover it to simmer. I love to use clove, apple, orange, or any citrus in the frig.

All you have to do now is enjoy the aroma floating through your home.

Have a great #Sunday!

November is National Family #Caregivers Month!

As we celebrate all those people caring for someone else, please be kind to yourself. Life is one step at a time.

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people 65 or over, certain younger people with disabilities, or someone diagnosed with end-stage renal disease.

Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period. From October 15 – December 7 each year, you can join, switch, or drop a plan. Your coverage will begin on January 1 (as long as the plan gets your request by December 7).

Medicare is broken down into four parts:

Part A: Hospital

Part A covers hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice, and home health care.

Part B: Doctor’s Care

Part B covers some doctor’s services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.

Part D: Prescription Drugs

Part D adds prescription drug coverage to the following:
Original Medicare
Some Medicare Cost Plans
Some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans
Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans

Part C: Medicare Advantage

Part C is an alternative to the original Medicare. By selecting this, you are bundling plans A, B, and D. You will still have Medicare, but most of your services will be paid by your Medicare Advantage policy. These plans are offered by insurance and other private companies approved by Medicare.

According to AARP, these are the top Medicare Mistakes.

Missing the enrollment window
Not knowing when the sign-up occurs
Misunderstanding your job’s insurance
Ignoring late enrollment penalties
Not thoroughly weighing your options
Delaying a Medigap buy
Not understanding your out-of-pocket costs
Picking a plan that doesn’t have your doctors
Taking a drug plan that doesn’t meet your needs
Assuming you can’t afford Medicare

There are over 3000 Medicare Advantage programs. Consult an independent insurance agent when evaluating Medicare options to ensure you are making the best selection for your family.
