Contrino Recieves Elder Care Coordination Certification
August 8, 2012 § Leave a comment
We are proud to announce that a member of our staff, Jori Contrino, recently completed the Elder Care Coordination (ECC) certification program. The certificate is offered by the Life Care Planning Law Firms Association (LCPLFA) in collaboration with The Stockton Center on Successful Aging at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
The ECC learning program will be beneficial to Jori because it will provide her with the tools and support needed to enhance the quality of life of our elder care clients. The certification supplies her with a solid foundation in the legal theories behind life care planning and community caregiving, provides knowledge on the aging process, and gives her skills in proper/appropriate treatment and referrals. The course will enhance our ability to help clients and families identify care problems and assist in solving them.
Jori said, “The certification program gave me a better understanding of all aspects of a Life Care Plan. The stories from other Elder Care Coordinators were very valuable. In the Elder Law Community you really don’t come across the same situation twice. Every client is different. So hearing how another ECC has dealt with past clients was very informative.”
Congratulations to Jori and thank you for being dedicated to the mission and clients of our office!
