Westchester Elder Law Attorney Anthony J. Enea Explores Assisted Living in a COVID-19 World

On March 3, Westchester County elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, member of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP in White Plains and Somers, N.Y., will welcome Grace Ferri of United Hebrew of New Rochelle for a special episode of the Talking Seniors podcast addressing long-term care in a COVID-19 world. “Is Assisted Living a Viable Housing Option for Seniors?” explores different housing options for seniors, how the pandemic has significantly impacted those in nursing homes, and what steps facilities are taking to keep residents safe in these challenging times.

“We have all felt the effects of the pandemic for some time now,” said Anthony Enea, who has spent 35 years protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families. “This is especially true for the senior population, who are particularly vulnerable. As we mark one year since the first COVID-19 case in Westchester, I look forward to Grace’s insights on how the assisted living community has adapted and what can be done to keep our loved ones safe.”

Listeners may tune in to Talking Seniors at talkingseniors.buzzsprout.com. New episodes are posted on the first Wednesday of each month and cover important legal and financial topics for seniors and their loved ones. In addition to Mr. Enea and his colleagues, the podcast will also feature local leaders in banking and finance, insurance, home and long term care, elder law and more.
