Helping seniors and their families

Serving Hudson Valley Region

Seniors

     Caring for an aging parent or loved one is not an easy job.  At some point in time most of us will face this herculean task in our lifetime.  There is so much to do, so much to know - it can be very, very overwhelming.    This becomes particulaly stressful if Mom lives in New York and you live in California.  A Geriatric Care Manager can help give you some peace of mind during this stressful time.  

    A Care Manager is a professional  with extensive knowledge and training in aging and community services.  A good care manager knows how to access and advocate for needed services and benefits for your loved one.  They are your eyes and ears watching over your loved one.  

Linda A Curtis, Geriatric Care Manager

     Whether your loved one wants to stay in their home or may require a higher level of care - a care manager will get what they need,  when they need it.  Most people can stay in their homes and studies have proven that we age more successfully in our own homes - I will work tirelessly to make it happen.

Client Services

Each family and situation is unique. Therefore  our care plans are different for each family and client.  Some of our clients may need help with  a Medicaid application,  another may just need some help with referrals to community services while others may need our more comprehensive care management. What ever your need is we are here to serve you.

Impact of 2020 Medicaid Cuts on Community Long Term Care

Effective Date Begins - October 1, 2020

 

New York State’s Medicaid Long Term Care for community based elderly has been a highly effective program that has enabled many seniors to stay in their homes.  However with cuts to the budget announced on March 31, 2020 funds to these programs have been severely cut back.  The bottom line - many elderly who would have been eligible for this program will no longer be eligible as of October 1, 2020.  The impact on many elderly and their families will be devastating.
