Feedback From The Families

Jen G.

Mimi was outstanding to work with. We were pressed to find a new living arrangement for my mother-in-law in short order. Mimi was incredibly responsive to be able to accommodate our short timeframe. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. Most of all, she was compassionate, reassuring, and accessible as she helped us to navigate this important decision. I would recommend Mimi highly and without reservation.

Mark C.

Mimi's extremely high EQ is rare in people and invaluable in this type of work. She helped us identify places that were good fits, not only in Westchester and Fairfield, but in other nearby areas. This allowed us to consider different levels of care and financial requirements, so we could choose a financially sustainable place that allows my mother to be active, engaged and happy, I have recommended Mimi to other friends of mine and would send anyone looking for eldercare, homecare or any community situation to her.

Suzanne P.

Mimi Santry is a highly talented & caring individual. She is very dedicated to providing excellent customer service. I recommend anyone looking for Elder care solutions, to contact & hire Mimi.

Susan H.

I highly recommend working with Mimi Santry. Her style is caring but professional. She is well informed, highly intelligent, compassionate and works quickly. She is well-suited to help people during difficult times.

There are several outstanding assisted living communities in this area. The primary consideration should be whether the facility can offer the level of care required. Certain communities may not offer more specialized care, so it’s crucial to locate one that can ensure the safety and well-being of your loved one. Other factors that play a significant role in determining suitability include convenient location, affordability, the overall atmosphere, and whether they provide programs that enable residents to pursue their interests and enjoy their stay.

The cost of assisted living can vary significantly based on various factors. These factors include the type of room you choose (such as studios, one-bedrooms, or two-bedrooms), and in some cases, shared accommodations are available. Additionally, there are monthly expenses for services like medication management and scheduled care provided by the community’s team of nurses. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021, in Connecticut, the monthly cost can range from $4,300 to $6,273. As one might anticipate, Fairfield County tends to have higher costs compared to locations farther from New York City.

There are several excellent memory care providers in this region. Some of them are dedicated entirely to memory care in a secured setting, ensuring a specialized approach for residents with dementia. Others provide specialized care for individuals with mild cognitive impairment. Additionally, there are communities that offer a continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care, making them suitable for couples with mixed care needs. It is crucial to select a community that aligns with the specific stage and requirements of both the resident and their family members.

Paying for assisted living can be accomplished through various means. Unless someone qualifies for Medicaid (a program designed for individuals who have depleted their financial resources), assisted living is generally funded through a combination of the resident’s private savings, income from sources like social security, veterans benefits for eligible individuals, and long-term care insurance. It’s important to note that medical insurance, including Medicare and most private insurance plans, typically does not cover the costs associated with stays in assisted living facilities.

 

To find the best-skilled nursing facilities in your area, one of the most convenient methods is to visit the Medicare website at http://www.medicare.gov. There, you can access nursing home ratings as well as information about any citations they may have received. This website offers valuable insights into the quality of skilled nursing facilities, including whether they accept Medicaid, making it a reliable resource for your search.
