Serving clients in Nassau & Western Suffolk Counties as well as the 5 Boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island.
Geriatric nursing and senior care management have been the core of my practice for 35+ years. As a Senior (Geriatric) Care Manager, I assist clients and their families explore different options to either ‘age in place at home’ or find the right setting where they can receive the best care, (sometimes an assisted living or skilled nursing facility).
Sometimes clients may do well with a short rehabilitation stay at a subacute facility, allowing them to regain their strength and endurance, and return home and live safely and independently. Home visits are often necessary to evaluate for safety and the need for equipment to make your loved ones more comfortable and safe. As a Geriatric Care Manager, I further assist clients and families explore options for paying for services through supplemental Medicare insurance, Medicaid, or Long Term Care Insurance. Often it is necessary to work together as a team with an Elder Care Attorney, who will provide the legal aspect of planning the care for a loved one.
An attorney can assist families to obtain legal documents for power of attorney (POA), health care proxies, living wills, asset protection, trusts, and pooled trusts. Pooled Income Trusts can be created to preserve income when one applies for Medicaid for Home Care (also known as Community Medicaid). Furthermore, I will assist clients and families to understand the eligibility requirements for Medicaid for Home Care vs. Nursing Home Medicaid. Through my many years of experience as a home care nurse, I have unlimited resources to assist with almost any need for a client, (senior programs, private hire aides, certified home health agencies, home visiting MD’s/ NP’s/ and PA’s).
