Volunteers needed

Douglas County Senior Services, Inc., in cooperation with Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas is recruiting volunteers to become trained SHICK counselors.

A regional training session will take place Tuesday to Thursday in Topeka. Transportation and/or mileage reimbursement may be provided.

SHICK counselors will complete three days of training in order to confidentially counsel beneficiaries regarding Medicare, Medicare supplemental insurance, prescription drug insurance, long-term car insurance and more.

Trained volunteers will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with local Medicare beneficiaries and/or staff the local SHICK Call Center answering a statewide hotline.

For more information, call Douglas County SHICK coordinator Katie Glendening at 842-0543 or e-mail
