Home Care in Huntington NY
On Thursday, August 11, 2016 Assemblyman Chad A. Lupinacci (R,C,I-South Huntington) visited Star Multi Care Services to hear first-hand how proposed changes in healthcare will potentially affect the elderly and the home care providers in New York State. Star Multi Care Services has been providing in-home healthcare to residents of New York since 1938. Stephen Sternbach, President and CEO, Lauren Scalcione, Branch Administrator and Amy Brett, Senior Patient Care Advocate sat down with Assemblyman Lupinacci to discuss how the upcoming legislation can affect the future of the Long Term Care industry in New York.
Putting aside the personal effects of these proposals to home care providers, Star Multi Care thought the Assemblyman would gain the most valuable insight through discussion with seniors and their home care aides. These vulnerable populations may be faced with the most devastating effects in the form of increased rates, reduced staffing pools and a backward push sending some seniors back to nursing facilities. “Meetings like these are truly productive because it helps me learn first-hand what important steps can be taken for the future of healthcare, our communities and the State of New York,” Lupinacci said.
These in-home meetings proved to be the most productive part of the day. “Giving Assemblyman Lupinacci the ability to hear a client and an aide each expressing their concerns over the proposed changes provided valuable insight that lawmakers tend to eliminate in their hast to pass new legislation and policies. I am thrilled that he took the time to listen to all of us today. It truly gives us hope that he is working to make New York healthcare better for everyone”, said Lauren Scalcione.
