Traverse County employs a Coordinator on Aging who is a trained advocate providing information and assistance to people over 60.  The primary goal is to assist residents of Traverse County to age safely in their own homes whenever possible.

The Coordinator on Aging can help seniors with their Part D, prescription, plan. Every fall, October 15 – December 7, seniors can check to see if their drug plan is the best for their prescriptions and the pharmacy that they use. This is the only time that you can switch your plan for the next year. Call the Coordinator on Aging to set up a time to evaluate your plan.
