Navigating Medicare classes underway

Anyone who is getting ready to retire and wants to know more about Medicare, or is a family member or caregiver to someone with Medicare coverage may benefit from attending a presentation to learn about Medicare.

The presentation is an educational opportunity, not a sales pitch. It is offered in cooperation with Senior Community Services, a non-profit agency in Minnetonka.

A nominal fee is collected to defer costs.
