Adele Ching and Gladys Brown.

AARP Molokai News Release

Adele Ching, representing the Senior Medicare Patrol, traveled from Oahu to tell AARP members on Molokai about their program at a well-attended meeting recently. They are part of the State Executive Office on Aging, and are charged with empowering seniors to prevent healthcare fraud. The program is federally funded and has been operating in Hawaii since 1997.

They have volunteers statewide and provide group presentations and one-on-one counseling in the basics of Medicare and Medicaid, fraud schemes, and how to combat errors, abuse and fraud.

If anyone is interested in the free training and certification to become a volunteer, call toll free 1-800-296-9422, or email laurel.paleka@doh.hawaii.gov.

Our AARP was also happy to welcome back our hard-working vice-president, Gladys Brown, on her recovery from heart surgery. We’re so happy to have her energetic vibes back intact.

AARP meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month in the small meeting room of Mitchell Pauole Center. Next meeting is Sept. 5. All persons 50 and over are eligible to join AARP, and everyone is welcome. Dues for our local chapter are $5 per year.
