Our Client Services Coordinator, Catherine G. Ziesmer, LSW, provides assistance with the challenges of aging to those 60 and older as well as to disabled adults younger than 60. If there is difficulty completing personal care, housework or food preparation, Catherine will make a referral to the VNA and/or Tri-Valley, Inc. Grief support and referrals to support groups are offered to help through the grieving process. She provides home visits as well as telephone reassurance, and will also refer to support groups for other issues such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, strokes, etc. Many elders need help with completing applications for services such as SNAP (formerly food stamps), MA Health, and Housing. Catherine provides referrals to protective services, the food pantry, legal assistance, and to charities including St. Vincent De Paul, Salvation Army, and Catholic Charities. She is trained in the SMART 911 program, a system that shares vital personal and medical information with response teams in the event of an emergency. Catherine works on Monday, Wednesday & Friday.
