SARA RODRIGUEZ - OWNER, MS, CMC
My name is Sara Rodriguez. I am the owner and founder of Benefits of Aging. Quality of life for elders and their caregivers has been my passion for over fifteen years. Often, extra care is needed to maintain or improve well-being. And, there are expenses associated with receiving that extra care.
That's why I formed Benefits of Aging. I have made it my business as a Medicaid Expert to apply for - and get clients approved for - Medicaid benefits to pay for their needed care.
With Medicaid benefits in place, a daughter can focus on a loving and caring relationship with her elderly mother, rather than suffering from caregiver burnout. An elderly man can receive the equipment he needs to feel independent and keep his dignity. Moving into an Assisted Living becomes a welcome relief rather than an unattainable goal due to cost.
I hold a Master’s Degree and Graduate Certificate in Aging. My team and I have a 100% approval rate for all our Medicaid applications.
Best of all, we can do this for you and your loved one, too!
