Since its inception in 1965, seniors across the country take advantage of the Medicare program. Having protective coverage is prudent as you age because it helps ease the financial burden on you and your family by allowing you to save. Medicare’s re-enrollment period for the 2020 calendar year is currently underway (October 16–December 7, 2019).

Among the different insurance policies available, a long-term care policy may rank right below health coverage. Many of us think that our medical insurance or Medicaid and Medicare will cover our long-term needs. Medicare includes portions of long-term care, but it is under specific circumstances and for no more than 100 days. It’s important to make smart decisions, early, so that you can enjoy the type of retirement you’ve always dreamed of.

To those who are unfamiliar, homeopathy may seem like a buzz word. It is also commonly misunderstood as another name for ‘home remedies’. It is, however, a medical system revived in the 18th century by a German physician and botanist named Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann. The premise behind the system is the belief that the body can heal itself. By using a “like cures like” approach, tiny amounts of natural substances like plants, herbs, flowers, etc. are used to trigger your body’s natural defenses and stimulate the healing process. Many people use homeopathic options for common ailments like colds, coughs, headaches, and nausea.
