Elder Care in Sayville, New York

Do you have an aging relative and are you concerned with their ability to care for themselves? As we age, our cognitive abilities deteriorate and we become less capable of making decisions that can greatly affect our well-being. In addition, memory can begin to fail and cause serious problems. If you are concerned about an elderly loved one’s cognitive abilities, I can help. I am committed to helping those who would otherwise be at risk of being placed in a nursing facility. With a degree in Geriatric Psychology and extensive training in assessment, affect observation, cognition building exercises, and the sociological effects of aging, I can give you and your family the peace of mind. My experience has involved working with individuals at risk for cognitive impairment due to age, Alzheimer’s patients, Parkinson’s patients, and those suffering from dementia and anxiety. In addition, my research regarding interpersonal relationships in later life and the negative effects of nursing home placement have been presented at various psychological conventions. As a Geriatric Transitional Counselor, I will perform assessments to determine if your loved one is in fact in the early stages of dementia, and if there is need for concern. My services also include weekly sessions in which the client’s brain is stimulated through fun and engaging cognition building exercises. As a concerned family member, you will receive feedback as to progress as well as counseling to help manage the new challenges that caring for an aging relative can present. Let me help you and your family navigate through this often daunting and stressful time. The placement of a loved one in a nursing home should be a last resort, and it is possible for the elderly to remain in the community and enjoy their golden years.
