I’m Diane Menio, executive director of the Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly. I’m an expert on elder care. Ask me anything!
My name is Diane Menio and I’m the executive director of CARIE (Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly). In Pennsylvania, 46 residents died from care-related problems in nursing homes between 2013 and 2015 and a third of Pennsylvania nursing homes were dangerously understaffed in 2015. I’m working with PennLive.com to share some tips on how to ensure your elderly loved ones get the best care possible and how to plan for their needs. I’ll be here from noon-1 p.m. EST to answer any questions you might have about elder care.
