New Medicare Website For Caregivers

New Medicare Website For CaregiversThe Elder Law Prof Blog prepared by Professor Kim Dayton, Director of the Center for Elder Justice and Policy at the William Mitchell College of Law, recently reported on a new service on the Medicare website for elder caregivers.  The new Medicare website provides useful information to help home caregivers with questions such as:

  • How to enroll in Medicare
  • What doctors take Medicare?
  • Are there alternatives to nursing homes?
  • What billing forms need to be completed?
  • How to choose a nursing home

Today there are more than 44 million Americans (one out of five) provide daily care for a chronically ill or aging loved one, friend, or neighbor.  The value of the care services is valued at $350 billion annually, according to AARP.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
