Caregiving is one of the most difficult jobs - and most rewarding- jobs, but it’s hard to get consistent, long-term care. The minimum wage has gone up to $11.10/hour in upstate New York; $15/hour in New York City, in some cases making other jobs more attractive for companion aides. Meantime, the adult children of aging parents have to scramble to fulfill the needs of their aging loved ones.
Join us on March 21 to learn about alternatives to this dilemma, as Elder Law Attorney Louis Pierro and Life Care Coordinators Nora Baratto and Susan Vail outline concrete solutions, including:
Technology that can identify and alert families to problems and issues in real time, preventing a crisis. These technologies, which we will demonstrate, can maximize the ability of seniors to stay in their own homes.
Medicaid planning that can preserve assets and help your loved one afford long-term care, including caregivers in the home
Programs that allow you to hire your family members, including grandchildren, if they meet eligibility rules.
