When and how do I enroll my loved one in Medicare?

If your loved one is getting closer to 65, there are many ways to be prepared to assist them with Medicare. As a caregiver, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the important initial enrollment period dates and learn how to enroll your loved one in Medicare coverage when the time comes. Knowing more about aging into Medicare can also give you a good grasp on what to expect for your loved one.
