Care N’ Care Health Plan Salutes North Texas Seniors During Older Americans Month in May

Health Plan Calls Upon All Area Residents to Take the Time to Recognize and Applaud the Ongoing Contributions Being Made by Seniors

(FORT WORTH, Texas) – May 8, 2017 — During Older American’s Month in May, Care N’ Care Health Plan is encouraging residents throughout the greater North Texas area to take the time to honor older adults and to recognize the contributions they continue to make to the community, their friends and their family.

“Getting older doesn’t mean what it once did. For many aging Americans, this is a phase of life where interests, goals and dreams can get a new or second start,” says Wendy Karsten, chief executive officer of Care N’ Care. “Today, aging is about eliminating outdated perceptions and living the way that suits you best. In fact, many older adults in our community are redefining aging and living their lives with boldness, confidence and passion while serving as an inspiration to people of all ages.”

Karsten says that Older American’s Month “offers a special opportunity to learn about, support, and recognize our nation’s older citizens and the positive impact they are having on the lives of others.” Some ideas for honoring seniors this month include arranging a family get together with older family members as the guests of honor, surprising your favorite older adults with flowers or ice cream, helping a senior learn new skills (such as the computer), inviting a more-active senior to a round of golf, or offering to do some errands or chores for an elderly neighbor. “It can also be as simple as making a phone call to a senior friend or family member,” says Karsten. “The most important thing is demonstrating that you care.”

Among the ways that aging has changed is that more and more seniors are taking charge of their health with a determination to remain as independent as possible and to live their lives to the fullest. Toward that end Care N’ Care serves as a trusted partner by offering each of its more than 10,000 members a personal Healthcare Concierge to serve as the single point of contact to help members navigate the healthcare experience and maximize their benefits and health potentials.

“Empowering seniors and giving them the healthy advantage is what Care N’ Care is all about,” says Karsten. “It’s all part of a recognition that whether a senior is more active or frail, they all deserve the admiration and respect they have earned over a lifetime of living.”

Care N’ Care is a local Medicare Advantage health plan providing North Texas Medicare beneficiaries in Tarrant, Johnson, Dallas, Collin, Denton, Rockwall and parts of Parker County affordable alternatives that improve and simplify Medicare coverage. With both PPO and HMO health plans, Care N’ Care offers all of the traditional benefits included in original Medicare plus additional benefits and services, including a personal Healthcare Concierge to serve as the single point of contact and trusted partner throughout the members’ healthcare experience.
