I developed this site after I dealt with so many issues for my parents.
Those issues ranged from finding cheap dentures for Dad (age 74) or navigating the Medicaid process after Mom’s heart attack (Mom unfortunately recently passed away on March 19, 2015 at the age of 71) that I realized that my experiences would benefit not only senior citizens but also their caregivers as well.
Ultimately, that is the reason I created StuffSeniorsNeed.com, to provide seniors and their caregivers with all of the information that I had personally acquired to enable them to live more rewarding lives.
And since that time, I have been extremely busy getting this vital information out. I do it through my YouTube Channel, this website and my new book that just came out, The Quintessential Guide for the Unprepared Caregiver.
I have also written as a guest contributor for several of the most prominent websites in the caregiving niche like…
I am also giving away (for the moment) a free online course on caregiving through Udemy.com.
So I hope you enjoy the site…and get the information that you need.
One way to make sure that you get all the information I am sharing is to sign up for my newsletter, which you can do by filling out the form below…
If you have any questions, or suggestions for new content, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to get back to you and assist you in any way that I can.
I would also like to announce that I have been accepted as a contributing author at AgingCare.com, an online resource that connects family caregivers and shares informative articles, provides answers and support through an interactive Caregiver Forum, and offers the ability to search for senior living options for elderly loved ones.
I am also a member of the Long Island Chapter of the National Aging In Place Council, a nationwide group dedicated to helping seniors age in place, and served as co-Chair for 2015 and Chairperson for 2016.
We have been an active chapter, giving many seminars in the local community with local politicians to make seniors and their caregivers aware of the resources at their disposal.
Here I am with Madeline Quintaye, Commissioner of Human Services for the Town of Babylon…
And here I am with Legislator Steve Stern, Chairman of the Seniors and Veterans Committee of the Suffolk County Legislature doing his weekly radio show…
The next event to mention was the Active Senior Lifestyle Expo at the Melville Marriott on June 7, 2014. Here I am pictured with Diane Landau, fellow NAIPC member and founder of Memories On The Move.
And finally, I just appeared on the Project Independence radio show to promote my website and the Aging-In-Place Council. Special thanks to Rebecca and David for being such gracious hosts..
