The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) is a U.S. law that requires covered employers to provide employees with protected, unpaid leave for certain medical and family reasons.

The New Jewish Home has been serving elders in New York City since before the Civil War, but CEO Jeffrey Farber knows that even an organization with that kind of longevity needs constant innovation to survive into the future.

In this edition of “Let Me Say This About That” we focus on innovation and how to make substantive change – from the perspective of those that are doing it, those that support organizations to make change, and those that research and have the 30-thousand-foot view.

When The Green House Project talks about bringing an end to the institutional nursing home, we don’t just mean the outdated, hospital-like buildings where so many elders live: We also mean the institutional culture that dehumanizes real people by treating them solely as collections of symptoms to manage. Sonya Barsness describes her role as a revis…
 
People are encouraged to plan for retirement (Save money!) and dying (Make a will!). But many of us — maybe most of us — forget that there can be a long (and expensive) time in between. In this episode, host Lenore Tracey talks with author, humorist, and elder law attorney Cathy Sikorski. Cathy’s new book, 12 Conversations: How To Talk to Almost An…
 
For years, Barry Berman and Betsy Mullen thought they’d built the best possible nursing home – to the point where people came from all over to see their state-of-the-art nurses’ stations and efficient meal distribution.

How do you know when someone’s lying to you? What about when they’re hiding something from you? It’s one thing if that person is a friend, co-worker, or even enemy. It could be much worse if it’s a medical professional unwilling to deliver bad news to you, or the one you’re caring for. Where do you start to uncover the truth? Start by watching face…

Those final days right before your last breath aren’t the time to plan or hope that you’ll be sent off to the great beyond with special fanfare.

If you want to spend eternity with the fishes, you can …

Medicare can be a confusing to anyone. When we need to help our parents out, many trip up along the way. Worse, the more we age the more we seem to trust. Such trust often leads well-intentioned folks to switch policies because their older TV actor “friend” said they’ll save a “boat load of cash” by using the policy they know and trust. Switches ge…
