The Dog Walker Watch is a crime awareness program that encourages dog walkers to serve as extra eyes and ears for law enforcement.

Every minute that someone goes without CPR, their chances of survival decreases by as much as 10 percent. Nationwide, only about 4 victims out of 10 will receive CPR from a bystander. Would you know what to do?

The Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch would like to inform you of important changes to Medicare Cards and tips to avoid common scams.
The Houston Better Business Bureau Education Foundation has advised us that Medicare is removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare Cards.
Here are some key points they’d like to share with seniors now, to help avoid problems in the future:
- The new number will be an 11 digit number that is a mix of numbers and letters assigned to only you.
- The cards are scheduled to be sent out from April 2018 to April 2019.
- You don’t have to do anything to get your new card. Your new card will come in the mail. If someone calls to “confirm your identity, or your Medicare number,” or to have you pay money to get yours early, it’s a scam so hang up.
- You have the same benefits. You can start using your new card immediately.
- The card is free. No one should tell you there is a one-time fee or that you will lose benefits if you don’t pay a fee or answer their questions.
- Never give your information to someone who calls you on the phone or comes to your door!
- Medicare fraud, errors or abuse may be reported to the Texas Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-888-341-6187.
For more information on how to avoid common scams, read the “Important Changes to Medicare Cards and Tips to Avoid Common Scams” article in the December issue of The Woodlands Community Magazine (page 24).
