Ira Axelrod, Owner
Right at Home is a leader in the in-home senior care industry. Our trained caregivers provide quality in-home care for seniors and disabled adults who need some assistance to maintain their independence.
FREE ASSISTANCE WITH MEDICAID APPLICATIONS, MEDICARE SAVINGS APPLICATIONS AND ORIGINAL MEDICARE (PARTS A AND B) for the AGED, BLIND AND DISABLED.
The Nassau Suffolk Hospital Council has partnered with the Suffolk County Department of Social Services on a grant from the NY State Department of Health to provide enrollment assistance in government-sponsored health insurance programs for the aged, blind, and disabled (ABD). Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council has facilitated enrollers (FE’s) trained by NY State Department of Health and stationed at various community based locations throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties to assist this targeted population enroll into the following programs: Medicaid, Medicaid Buy-In for Working People with Disabilities (MBI-WPD), Medicaid Spend-down, Medicare Savings (MSP), and Medicaid for Institutional Care in a Nursing home. We can also assist clients to apply for Medicaid if they are found eligible for Home and Community Based Services Waivers (i.e. OPWDD, TBI, NHTD, OMH).
In 2018, NYS DOH added Medicare Telephone Assistors (MTA’s) to the ABD Grant because a large number of Medicaid beneficiaries, who should have applied for Medicare, failed to do so. Medicare Telephone Assistors assist these beneficiaries enroll into Original Medicare. This is accomplished by helping beneficiaries apply online at SSA.gov, referring them to an ABD enrollment site for in-person Original Medicare enrollment, or helping them to make appointments at the local Social Security Office. Once enrolled (or denied) Original Medicare, Medicare Telephone Assistors request proof of Medicare enrollment (or denial) to send to the local Department of Social Services to stop the potential dis-enrollment from the applicant’s Medicaid benefits.
Medicare Telephone Assistors are also provided lists from the NYS DOH of current MAGI Medicaid enrollees, who will be transitioned from the NYSoH online Marketplace and to their local DSS office due to ‘aging out’ at age 65, who will need assistance with Medicare enrollment. Medicare Telephone Assistors help these individuals to apply for Medicare, and connect them with an ABD FE, who can assist them in completing the necessary Medicaid paperwork to ensure dual eligibility.
Marketing and selling in the healthcare and senior housing industry is challenging, and requires both sales expertise and compassion.

Assisted Living at its Finest.
Since 2000, The Bristal has helped families understand and embrace the advantages of Senior Assisted Living. Our privately owned senior care communities, and all they offer, are the finest you will encounter. Our senior independent living environment not only grants residents the freedom to come and go and live as they wish, but we also support them with daily assistance from a loving, caring and expertly trained staff. Each of our Senior independent living communities features a unique personality and energy, and if that were not enough, our senior living communities offer innovative programs that enhance our residents’ experiences every day. The result: independence, safety and life enrichment. This is The Bristal way.
Our expert staff keeps residents involved, enriched, engaged and invested in reaching their potential — even in their senior years. Learning. Evolving. Progressing. Achieving. This is the difference you will find at The Bristal: Where Every Day Means More ®
