Praise given by: Teresa Cowles
Volunteer name: Ann Locke
County: Washington

This is an absolutely invaluable service. Anne spent a considerable amount of time with me answering questions I had from the Medicare website and navigating the book that the state publishes about Medicare programs. This really helped me clarify my needs and make a decision. Bravo Oregon for doing this and Brava Anne for her expertise, patience and caring for seniors

Name: Debbie Mode
Volunteer name: Judy Riggs
County: Linn

Judy Riggs has been a tremendous help in Linn County. Judy's regular counseling location is Albany – due to gaps in coverage in the county she has been willing to travel to Lebanon and Sweet Home and help clients in those areas also. I really appreciate her taking the extra time and incurring the expense to travel to the outlying regions. She is an excellent team player.

Name: Frances Grimshaw
Volunteer name: Pat Zimmerman
County: Columbia

Pat has helped me beyond belief. I was told a long time ago that I did not qualify for extra help and talking with Pat (via phone) she informed me other wise. She has helped me to understand how much help there really is and to get me started how to fill out the forms etc. I still have to call her from time to time for advice or something I have forgotten. (Which happens a lot) I'm so thankful to have her as a counselor and to know that if I ever need any assistance with anything that have Pat to rely on. A gold star goes to this lady!
