Serving Hudson Valley Region
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.
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.

Medicaid Application Support
Draconian cuts to Community Medicaid Long Term Care effective was originally set for October 1, 2020 but has been in part postponed until January 2023 due to the pandemic and the national emergency. While there have been some changes to the managed long term care program guidelines at least a 2.5 year financial look back will not stop you from obtaining Medicaid. This is your chance to apply now without worrying about the "financial look back" and other cuts. We can help. Call or email us!!
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. The impact on the elderly and their families will be devastating.
