(New Hartford, NY – March 2013) Elder Net has opened in New Hartford and is celebrating their Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday April 4 at 10:30 a.m.

The Mohawk Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, as well as local dignitaries, will be in attendance for this ribbon cutting ceremony.

On Jan. 2 ElderNet, LLC opened its doors for business at 555 French Road in New Hartford. Co-founded and lead by Donna Sweeney, ElderNet’s mission is to help identify the most cost effective approach to meet the elderly’s changing needs. ElderNet will connect individual needs with benefits available to enable the elderly to have care and support their way.  ElderNets belief is that everyone is entitled to live safely in the least restrictive environment possible.

ElderNet is adept at handling the Medicaid application process, from filing a Medicaid application to advocating for the applicant every step of the way. ElderNet can also handle other benefit based applications quickly and is more “cost-effective” as it is not a law firm. ElderNet can conduct an “on the spot” individual analysis as well.

“Our business name says it all … we are a company that provides a network to the elder community for all of their needs … From providing assistance with Medicaid and other government benefits, to bill paying, individual monitoring and fulfillment of your overall care and support needs. Everyone is different and so are their needs; that is why ElderNet is here, for Care and Support Your Way!” said Co-Founder Donna Sweeney.

Other co-founders of Elder Net, LLC are David J. Zumpano, Ryan F. Coutlee and Jennifer M. McDonnell. Services include: Completion of Medicaid Applications and annual Medicaid Recertification forms, benefit and entitlement research and management (examples Veterans Benefits, HEAP, Healthy NY, etc.) researching and managing financial account records, assistance with the completion of forms required annually (including Enhanced STAR Exemption), bill paying assistance, tracking and reminders of appointments,  regular home visits or phone calls scheduled at your convenience to ensure life is running smoothly, tracking of prescriptions to ensure they are being filled as prescribed, information and guidance on quality, trusted transportation to run an errand or to get to an appointment, informational meeting aimed at keeping you up to date on outside services and options available.
