Registered Contra Costa HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) has many special talks and events planned to help you understand your options during open enrollment, including a counseling event at the Walnut Creek Senior Club on Tuesday, November 6 between 9:30 am and 2:00 pm to review your Medicare coverage and make sure you have the option for 2019.  You may be able to save a lot of money by changing plans..

Homeowners benefit if professionals from the various disciplines are knowledgeable about one another, and better professional referral networks are established.Increasing the level of knowledge and skills of Aging in Place professionals from a wide variety of fields whose collaboration and involvement is essential to insuring greater public access to programs and support services that promote independent living.
  • Advocating for policies, regulations and business practices that promote Aging in Place.
  • Promoting National Aging in Place Week and other events through various media. During this week, members of the National Aging in Place Council® coordinate events in their communities to highlight local programs and services available to help increase independent living.
