Special Guest Elizabeth Martin, CEO of Consumer Directed Choices
Each year around Mother’s Day, Life Happens Radio host Lou Pierro often shares a memorable quote his late mother once said, “This is the house I raised my family in, and the only way I am leaving is feet first.” Honoring that wish for his mother was very important to Lou, and has driven him to help other families navigate the long-term care process and fulfill that wish for their loved ones. With advancements in technology, and changes to traditional care programs, a growing number of seniors who once would have had no other option but to move to a nursing home, are now able to age in the comfort of their own homes.
On this LHR podcast, Lou is joined by Nora Baratto, LCSW-R, EverHome Care Advisors and guest host Elizabeth Martin, CEO of Consumer Directed Choices (CDChoices). Aimed at helping seniors control their own home care, CDChoices is a Medicaid funded program that allows individuals to directly hire, train and pay a home health aide of their choosing. Giving consumers the ability to hire people such as their children, neighbor, or good friend can ease the stress of finding the right caregiver. Listen above to hear Lou, Nora and Elizabeth share more information about this program, and other ways to plan for the future.
