During our 10th JoCo on the Go podcast episode, we’re discussing the well-being of Johnson County’s older adults. Commissioner Janeé Hanzlick, Johnson County Board of County Commissioners, will talk about the board’s efforts to ensure Johnson County remains an affordable place to live for all ages. She’ll also discuss ways the community can volunteer to help older adults who might be homebound. You’ll hear from Denise Dias with K-State Extension, and Elizabeth Mardis with the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment about programs available to help older adults with the Medicare and Medicaid health care coverage applications. Finally, Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s Michelle Alexander will share details of the upcoming Live Well Age Well event for those 50 and older.
Live Well Age Well includes vendors, presentations, screenings, giveaways and more. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18, at the Marriott Overland Park, 10800 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
