Social Adult Day Care

Studies have shown that people who attend adult day centers often lead more productive and healthy lives. Adult day centers offer participants the opportunity to socialize, enjoy being in the company of their peers and receive compassionate services all in a safe, familiar environment. They provide a positive attitude toward self-image, restoring, maintaining and stimulating capacities while providing support for functional limitations.

• Add purposeful meaning to their lives

• Maintain as much independence as possible

• Provide structure to their daily routine

• Stay living in the community

Caring for someone who needs constant attention is difficult. If you are a caregiver, you need a break! Respite care is defined as short-term relief for those caring for loved ones. This respite care isn’t just a break for you, it’s a break for the person you care for, too.

The intent of this program is to keep seniors healthy and in their own home as long as possible. They seek to create an atmosphere that enhances the value of human life and affirms the dignity and self-worth of each and every senior individual. For every person joining the program, two people’s lives are brightened: the individual and the caregiver!

Pool Trust

A Pooled Income Trust is a unique type of trust operated by a federally approved 501(c)(3) that allows disabled individuals of any age to preserve their income and assets, so that they may become or retain financial eligibility for public benefits such as Medicaid Home Care.

Under current New York Medical law, income in excess of the monthly Medicaid allowance must first be spent down on home care or medical expenses prior to receiving Medicaid coverage. Unfortunately, the guidelines do not exempt living expenses, such as rent, food, clothes, or utility services when calculating an applicant’s excess income. As a result, Medicaid recipients may not have a sufficient amount of funds to maintain their standard monthly living expenses.

Per state and federal regulations, any disabled individual that deposits their monthly excess income into a Pooled Income Trust will not be subject to rules that regularly apply to monthly excess income. The deposited income will therefore not be counted as available income required to be spent on medical expenses.

By establishing a Pooled Income Trust, the beneficiary obtains the benefit of having their monthly income available to them to pay for their living expenses without contributing to the cost of their medical care.
