Elder Pathways is a network of Geriatric Care Management resources and services offered by Marcie Dimenstein, LCSW.
Marcie will assist your family in finding better and more efficient and cost-effective ways of providing care for a loved one. The concept is simple, the family hires a professional adviser to act as a guide through the maze of long-term care services and providers. Her knowledge of resources and financial programs will help you find what you need when you need it.
“I will get you on the right track to provide help for your elder. You will have some room to breathe, I can provide as much or as little support as your family needs,” says Marcie.
“The services of Elder Pathways will save you time and money. I pull together and coordinate teams to meet each person’s needs: Families, Personal Care Attendants, Financial Planners, Elder Attorneys, Insurance Providers, Nurses and Physicians. Most families have found that the cost of a care manager will pay for itself due to savings gained from knowledge of helpful resources and financial programs. Care manager services can also greatly reduce family and caregiver stress and help eliminate family disputes and disagreements and allow you to continue to enjoy the time you have with your loved one.”
Some services are covered by insurances including Long Term Care Insurance.
