AGING IN PLACE SERVICES

Aging in Place refers to remaining in one’s own home and community – safely and independently – as you get older. Often times, assistance and/or other services are needed to do so. You may also want to think of Aging in Place as Living in Place.

Aging (LIVING) in Place Services: Aging in Place services are grassroots organizations, run by area residents, that help older adults stay in their homes. Types of services they may provide include: cultural and social activities; referrals to services such as health care providers and tradespeople; transportation to shopping, personal care and medical appointments; health and wellness programs.

At Giannasca & Shook, PLLC our attorneys provide Elder Law and Estate Planning services to meet the varied wishes and needs of our clients and their families. Each client presents unique circumstances, and therefore personalized attention is given by our skilled attorneys to assess your circumstances and formulate a plan and course of action uniquely tailored for you.
Much of Elder Law and Estate Planning is about protecting and preserving the assets you worked so hard to accumulate, and transferring that wealth to your loved ones in accordance with your wishes. But a knowledgeable Elder Law and Estate Planning attorney also takes a hands-on approach to plan for inevitable events such as advancing age and retirement, as well as the potential medical or long term care needs of you or someone in your family. Our compassionate attorneys take the time to understand the family dynamic and complex relationships that may exist within your family which we view as an indispensable part of proper planning. Bottom line, we get to know you and your family and become your trusted legal advisor. We ensure your financial, medical and legal wishes are carried out so that your family does not suffer the financial and emotional crisis that often arises from lack of planning.

If you’re the executor of an estate, you may quickly realize that it feels as time-consuming as a full-time job, and can be incredibly challenging or even impossible to manage efficiently when work and family take precedence. There is much work that estate attorneys don’t do, and you may not even know where to begin or what questions to ask. Peak Executor Solutions will help you understand what you don’t know and will help you quickly accomplish the required tasks – saving you time and lessening your burden. We add value by significantly reducing the time to estate settlement, which can translate to significant money saved in legal and accounting fees.

Homeowners ages 62 and older can use their home equity to: pay off existing mortgage; supplement retirement income; pay medical expenses or credit card debt; help adult children with a down payment for their own home; fund college expenses; and more. A reverse mortgage (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) is FHA-insured and HUD-regulated. You continue to own your home and can sell at any time. Repayment is optional until you leave your home.
You can borrow 45% to 60% of your home’s value (home value used for calculation capped at $636,150). And since you are only borrowing a portion of your home’s worth, you still are providing a legacy for your children or other loved ones.

If you are concerned about your driving, or the abilities of a loved one, Burke’s Driver Evaluation Program can help. This assessment includes an in-clinic portion, where an occupational therapist administers tests that measure driving skills and, when appropriate, an in-vehicle test with a driving school. The goal is to measure safe driving ability and, when needed, recommend rehab to strengthen skills. The program is offered at Burke’s White Plains and Somers outpatient clinics.

SKILLED NURSING & REHABILITATION CENTERS – IN PATIENT / NURSING HOMES

Upon discharge from a hospital, often times people are not ready or able to go directly home. Perhaps it’s a medication issue or inability to manage stairs. At a skilled nursing facility (SNF), a doctor supervises care, there’s physical therapy along with many other services.Plus, after a 3-day hospital admission, stays at a SNF will usually be 100% covered for those on Medicare for 20 days.
For those needing long-term skilled nursing care, nursing homes are an important and available option, with many described below:

SENIOR LIVING / RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES

There are so many options in Westchester for those who need or would like to leave their homes. Senior living and retirement communities are situated throughout the area, with varying levels of care and service. Many even allow short-term stays so you or a family member can try them on for fit. Here are some terms to be familiar with:

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) accommodate residents’ changing needs. They may start off in independent living in single family homes/ apartments/ condos and can move into assisted living or nursing care if it becomes necessary. All the while, the individual stays on one main campus offering all the above.

Independent Senior Living refers to apartment-dwelling in a senior community. Residents live independently and be be offered services such as meals and housekeeping. For seniors who are independent but need some help, there is

Assisted Living. Meals, recreation, outings, and other programs would be offered in addition to meals. There is help with daily activities, nurses available 24/7 and wellness programs. There are assisted living communities that also provide

Memory Care services for their residents with dementia. Not all assisted living communities provide the specialized services associated with memory care.

Respite Care offers caregivers a much-needed break and the time to maintain their own health and well-being – for themselves and for their loved ones. Hired caregivers can come into the home to provide respite for short or long periods of time. Alternatively, many assisted living residences provide respite care as well. Ask these communities if they offer one-week or extended stays in their communities.
