My 95 year old mother was living independently in NYC when she fell and broke her ankle. I knew that we now needed to deal with not only her recovery but also the task of finding appropriate care.
Engaging Lyn was by far the best decision I have ever made. She is extremely knowledgeable and guided me through the whole process from finding a suitable nursing facility to handling mom's Medicaid application. During our first meeting she took the time to patiently explain all of my options as well as what were her recommendations. I never felt pressured, in fact during the whole process Lyn described everything in terms that were easily understood.
Lyn has an excellent command of all the issues I was facing in arranging for my mother's care. She has made sure to "cross every t and dot every i" which has given me and my family a tremendous piece of mind. I would highly recommend Lyn to anyone who is facing the task of how best to care for their elderly parents.

When my 67 year old husband was suddenly stricken with a debilitating stroke, I was only aware of the emotional impact. I had no idea of the underlying threat of losing absolutely everything for which we had ever worked or saved. Fortunately, a close family friend, (a lawyer himself) advised me to specifically get an Elder Care attorney. He said, "you will need the very best you can get and Lyn Eliovson is the best one I know."
He was right, Lyn and her partner Christine Tenore were precise, efficient, knowledgeable experts who turned in a clean, complete, flawless application for Medicaid, which was quickly accepted, for my husband's necessary long term care.
As impressed as I am with the work that they did for us, it cannot outshine their treatment of my husband and myself. They were kind and patient with a compassionate understanding of the stress and sorrow of our situation.
You may be wondering about the cost of such an excellent firm. Well, let me put it in perspective. The cost of these attorneys would have barely covered six weeks of my having to privately pay for nursing home care. One year of nursing home care and medical expenses would cost me our home and all of our savings.

Linda deserves ten stars for guiding my way thorough the care of my elderly parents. As an out of state POA, I needed a lot of information and Linda very clearly explained Connecticut laws regarding Medicare/medicaid and long term elder care.
Through her advice I was able to obtain 24 hour home care for my father and then get both parents transferred to a long term facility under Medicaid. Linda drafted documents for my parents and personally delivered them for signing. Linda is premier elder law council in Fairfield County and I was fortunate that she was able to help so much. I highly Linda Eliovsons' counsel in matters of elder law.
