LONG TERM HEALTH CARE LONG ISLAND, NY


In the past, people did very little planning for long term care needs because life expectancies were so much shorter and family members were usually able to provide care. Changes in our society and the family make this much more difficult today. Smaller families, family members moving to other locations, both heads of household working, mean family members are less likely available as a care giver while at the same time you are much more likely to need a care giver. Your children will be sandwiched between you and their own children. Women were traditionally the care giver, now 47% of women work outside the home. Adding parental care to a life style already packed with the demands of work and family can be too overwhelming making the relationships between you and your children begin to deteriorate at a time when you need your relationships to be better than ever. Family care givers are much more likely to experience depression and anxiety.

Long Term Care is provided to people who are unable to perform the basic tasks of everyday living, on their own for an extended period, due to chronic medical, physical, cognitive conditions or disabling injuries.

The need for assistance is often diagnosed by one’s ability to perform Activities of Daily Living - transferring, walking, bathing, dressing, toileting, etc.

Long Term Care Insurance covers long term care services provided in your home, other community based settings, an assisted living facility and a nursing home. Medicare, supplemental insurance and traditional health and disability insurance do not cover chronic long term care services. Long Term Care Insurance does. There are two general types of long term care insurance sold in New York State; Traditional Long Term Care and New York State Partnership for Long Term Care.

Long Term Care Insurance premiums are dependent upon many factors. The age at which you purchase, your health, the amount of coverage you want and how long you want to cover are a few of the most important considerations. New York State provides an income tax credit and the Federal Government allows deductions, dependent upon your age, for all tax qualified long term care insurance policies to help people afford long term care insurance coverage.

    My friend Jenny went back to her family in Florida, after staying with me for 8 months, until the Medicaid came. There have been so many twists and turns during this four year journey with Mom. I could never have done it without Metro Elder Care Agency. You, Joy, Elaine and the phone staff have all been so kind, patient and understanding. You have encouraged me at times when I was so overwhelmed I didn't know which way to turn. Thank you and I look forward to continuing to utilize your services. I want to be ready for Medicaid renewal time next year. Please don't forget me. I know I have to submit payment for future services, is there a deadline?

    Rarely in the business do you meet people who are honest, professional, do business by a code of ethics and most importantly reliable. I can honestly say that Elaine is who you should call if your family needs help.
