New York, NY, June 22, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Medicaid Advisory Group has announced a formal partnership with the New York nonprofit, PSS Circle of Care, that will provide free resources, training and assistance to caregivers who need it most.
PSS Circle of Care was recently awarded $7.5 million as part of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Initiative. The award will bring training, online resources, support groups, assistance and information to caregivers who are struggling to take care of aging loved ones.
"Caregivers frequently tell us they are tired, exhausted, stressed and sometimes just need a little time for themselves. This partnership will help these caregivers a support network to help them through this difficult time."
Ginalisa Monterroso, CEO, Medicaid Advisory Group
Every year, thousands of eligible Medicaid recipients struggle financially, even though many of these patients qualify for free healthcare assistance. In surveys, most caregivers say they are unaware of the application and eligibility process to Medicaid, while others say the application process is complex, confusing and stressful. Most caregivers don’t have the time, energy nor the healthcare expertise to research whether or not their aging parents, grandparents or disabled family members are eligible for Medicaid.
This new partnership between Medicaid Advisory Group and PPS Circle of Care brings together a network of personal caregivers across all five boroughs, providing other caregivers with an easy way to access free caregiving resources through PSS and obtain Medicaid consultation services.
Medicaid Advisory Group guides and represents seniors during the complex, stressful Medicaid application process, without expensive legal costs. PSS Circle of Care offers free training, online resources, support groups, assistance, and information to the caregivers who need it most.
“Caregivers frequently tell us they are tired, exhausted, stressed and sometimes just need a little time for themselves. This partnership will help these caregivers a support network to help them through this difficult time,” said Ginalisa Monterrosa, the CEO of Medicaid Advisor Group. “It will also provide these caregivers with new resources, so they won’t spend hours of their own time searching for answers.”
