Area community members are celebrating a big milestone
This year marks 80 years of the social security program
and 50 years of the Medicaid program.
La Crosse County's Aging Unit held a get-together
this morning at the Black River Beach Neighborhood
Center in La Crosse.
Wisconsin Representative Jill Billings was also there
talking about all the benefits from the programs.
The event is way to learn about resources available
for seniors and their family members.
My parents both passed away with Alzhiemers, we farmed
in and because of the adventures I was having with
them I needed some help and I heard about support
groups that the county sponsered the adrc and I wouldn't
be alive to day without those suuport groups.
Even though many seniors might be retired.
it's easy to forget about all the work they do and
have done to help the community.
