The Need For A Centralized Department Of Aging

The Need For A Centralized Department Of AgingSeniors in Connecticut will soon have an easier time obtaining State-run services.  Under the new plan, Connecticut will have a centralized cabinet-level office on aging created by the Governor.  The new agency makes it easier for seniors to get information on long-term care and assisted living care.

Services will range from help with basic daily chores to around the clock medical care.  The new program will provide alternatives for seniors who may have ordinarily gone to a nursing home.  68% of  Connecticut’s Medicaid spending goes to institutionalized nursing home care.

Studies have shown well over 90% of seniors do not wish to be in a nursing home.  Studies have also shown that providing community based elder care is cost effective as it is less expensive than nursing home care.

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
