Welcome to Generations - We provide information and services to older adults, individuals with disabilities of any age and their caregivers in Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties. Our mission is to offer people choices as they age to live a better life with independence and dignity.
From nutrition to arranging the right in-home services, our job is to connect individuals with the right programs and services to help improve their quality of life. Generations is a program of Vincennes University’s Community Service Division.
Generations' Mission: "We offer people choices as they age to live a better life with independence and dignity."
Medicare Open Enrollment (October 15-December 7, 2013) is a time when all people with Medicare are encouraged to review their current health and prescription drug coverage. If you want to change your coverage, this is the time to do it. If you're satisfied with your current coverage, you don't need to do anything. For more information, visit Medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE. If you would like to speak to someone in person, Generations Options Counselors, who are also certified SHIP Counselors, may be able to help you with this process by appointment only. Starting October 15th, appointments will be available on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call Linda Yochum at 1-800-742-9002 or 812-888-4854. Please note - this assistance only applies to Medicare Open Enrollment, NOT the Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment.
Falls are the main reason why older people lose their independence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has put together this informational brochure, "Stay Independent," that includes an easy checklist for assessing your risk for falling.
