FBWEV’s 7th Health and Wellness Lecture
The 7th session of the Foggy Bottom West End Village Health and Wellness series on "Understanding What Home Care Is and Is Not " took place on October 9th in the Village offices. Maura Barillaro, a registered nurse and Director of Nursing for Home Care Assistance for more than 17 years, instructed the Village members and helped them understand what aging in place means and exactly what is home care.
She also discussed what is covered by Medicare/Medicaid, what is covered by Long Term Care Insurance and what must be paid out of pocket. This most instructive lecture was very helpful to members who will have to make home care decisions now or in the future.
