Medicare Stories – Mary Land
Mary Land, 58, of Racine, Wisconsin, knows the value of Medicare all too well after watching her mother, 88, cope with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and make remarkable progress.
“My mother was just able to use her Medicare benefits to enter into a rehab facility earlier in 2015,” says Mary. “Without the rehab she could not even move at all. At all! She is now home and dressing herself and enjoying her life. She can transport herself upstairs and get in and out of bed. Without Medicare – none of this would have been possible. She would have just wasted away.“
“We have all paid for Medicare and Social Security our entire working careers. They are not entitlements – they are our earned benefits,” adds Mary.
