fter Congress reached a bipartisan agreement on a budget deal, one agenda item was left untouched: an extension on federal unemployment insurance benefits that could affect 4,056 unemployed individuals in Westchester County and 1,092 in Rockland County. Rep. Nita Lowey, a Democrat who represents parts of Westchester and Rockland counties, recently met with Lower Hudson Valley job seekers and labor union leaders in her White Plains district office to discuss the local impact of Congress’ decision

The subject of the roughly hourlong hearing, the need for bipartisan House action on a comprehensive immigration reform bill, is an urgent and critical one for many of the 2,300 low-income immigrants, predominantly from Guatemala, directly served by Neighbors Link.

t’s before 8 o’clock on a recent school morning and Frank Squeo has beat the fleet of yellow buses dropping off students and creating parking lot gridlock on the Rockland BOCES campus in West Nyack. Wearing jeans and a T-shirt with “Memory Maker” printed on the back, he flips on lights and dashes about the culinary arts kitchen in a wing of the red brick BOCES school with missionary purpose and perhaps more anxiety than usual in this holiday season. “We have to make 20,000 cookies today,” he tells a young woman who arrives in faded sweatshirt and jeans with a couple friends. Danielle Squeo is a junior marketing major at James Madison University in Virginia. Busy, earnest Uncle Frank recruited her to aid him in his charitable cause on her winter holiday break. “It’s falling on your shoulders because I’m leaving at 11,” he informs his niece as he sets large stainless steel mixing bowls on a counter. A mess hall-sized mixing machine nearby churns chocolate chips and flour into a taffy-like state in a nearly overflowing vat. Squeo is in a rush to deliver a memorable gift this afternoon to a family near Philadelphia. As a small business owner, it’s the long offseason for Squeo, who for 35 years has run from his Valley Cottage home a oneman pool services company, Personalized Pool Care. He serves customers in Rockland County and New Jersey’s Bergen County. Over the winter holidays, the pool man for years has baked chocolate chip cookies for his customers. They love them, he says. “It’s a special recipe that we use. Every year I make these holiday cookies. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid.” Squeo was 47 when, while hiking in Arizona about eight years ago, he noticed a lump in his neck. Needle biopsies were inconclusive and the lump remained an unsettling mystery. In 2007, a few months after discov-

ering it, he had the entire lump removed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Doctors found advanced Stage 3 testicular cancer. “The lump in my neck was the last stage before it went into my brain.” Three months of difficult chemotherapy followed, and the first treatment temporarily left him blind. Chemotherapy was followed by another six months of recovery. Frank Squeo was one of the fortunate to emerge from that medical and emotional trial. “It’s totally healed,” he says amid the noise and brisk movements of an institutional kitchen where 20 to 30 BOCES students and staff and Squeo-directed volunteers measured, mixed, ladled and baked batches of chocolate chip cookies. “I’m totally healed.” The grateful cancer patient felt “there had to be a reason for why I went through this.” He thought about children with cancer and how much more devastating the disease is in their young lives and for their families.

13 children in impoverished countries with donations to international organizations. He thought to do more good for children closer to home. “I’m a Disney freak,” he said, the kind that makes regular pilgrimages in the course of a year to Disney World in Florida. That passion and a talent for baking critically well-received cookies combined to inspire the nonprofit foundation the pool man launched in March after two years of planning and paperwork. Baking Memories 4 Kids, his foundation is called. At the organization’s website, bakingmemories4kids.com, donors can order a one-pound box of Squeo’s made-inRockland cookies for $24.99. Jack Daniels Motors in Bergen County has ordered 500 containers. Order four boxes or more and shipping is free. With proceeds from the holiday bake sale, Baking Memories 4 Kids sends children with cancer and other lifethreatening illnesses and family members to Florida and gives them a week of free passes to Disney World and several other amusement parks and attractions. (For every order, $1 is donated by Baking 4 Memories to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.) The Florida gift package includes round-trip airfare, a rented car and resort accommodations. “It’s a $15,000 vacation that we’re giving free,” says the founder. Later today he’ll drive to the Philly area to present that gift to a family with two children afflicted with a genetic condition, spinal muscular atrophy. “We had enough raised to send eight families this year,” he says. “We want to sell more cookies and send more families.” Though the foundation accepts monetary donations on its website, Squeo says as “an old-fashioned type of foundation” it relies

largely on its cookie sales to fund the Florida trips. In this first season of formal operation, “We have about 1,800 orders so far. If we don’t sell cookies, we can’t send families.” Squeo found the BOCES kitchen facility in West Nyack online. Before moving operations during a brief baking season that started last month, he had already baked 10,000 cookies in his Valley Cottage home. On the Saturday before this school day baking session, 40 student volunteers pitched in to help in the 10-oven BOCES kitchen. The weekend labor produced 56,000 cookies for the cause. “Can you do me a favor?” Squeo asks Kendell Brenner, the chef who instructs the BOCES culinary arts class. “Can you find some salt? Somebody took my salt and I need it right now.” For his culinary students baking for the charity, “We tie it into the curriculum for production baking,” Brenner tells us. “It teaches them job-ready skills.” “Hey, Kendell, this oven is not running!” Squeo is shouting now as he runs between workstations. “We figured we’re doing 3,000 cookies an hour,” says Brenner. “It’s organized chaos. It’s all about the collaboration and building the partnerships.” “OK, guys, are you working with me?” Squeo addresses the kitchen crew. “I need you right now. …Today we really got to go fast. Get these cookies on the trays. We got to get them in the oven.” “Whoever’s rolling them, stop,” he says, surveying cookie dough gobs spooned onto oven-bound trays. “Just put them on the trays. They don’t need to look good.” The pool man expects to turn out about 200,000 chocolate chip cookies in his busy off-season. That could add up to some good memories for some very sick kids.

County delays deal with airport service provider Ernesto’s BY MArK lUngAriello mlungariello@westfairinc.com

C

ounty lawmakers seemed ready to sign a deal Dec. 16 that would have ended a lawsuit from a company that leases space at the Westchester County Airport. But the county Board of Legislators blinked in the face of local opposition to the proposed settlement after parts of the agreement were changed just days before the vote. At stake are millions of dollars in property tax revenues for two local governments and a small Westchester school district that feared the proposed settlement kept the door open to a tax exemption that would cripple their relatively small municipal budgets. State Sen. George Latimer, a Democrat and former county legislator himself, addressed the board at its Dec. 16 meeting on behalf of the people in his district. “This is an example where the corporate interest of the county of Westchester is your immediate responsibility, but it’s important as well to understand the corporate interest and the human interest that is affected by the decisions that are made,” Latimer said. Signature Flight Support Corp.’s current lease with the airport dates to 2008. The company provides support services there, such

as fueling and parking. The company sued, claiming it should have its property taxes exempted partly based on its location on the county’s land. The property is located in the village of Rye Brook and pays property taxes that mostly go to the village, Blind Brook school district and Westchester County. If a court ruled the property should be tax exempt, the village and school district could both lose roughly $700,000 each year in revenues. Blind Brook, Rye Brook and Westchester would also be on the hook to refund back taxes of $2.3 million, $700,000 and $400,000, respectively. Rye Brook’s entire general fund is just over $19 million and the Blind Brook school district budget is likely to be around the $40 million mark. Joe Carvin is the supervisor of Rye Town, today mostly an administrative town, which encompasses Rye Brook as well as Port Chester. He was among the many local officials who converged on the county board’s chambers ahead of the expected vote. “It has a devastating impact on our community,” he said. The county took the lead in the lawsuit, with some defending the taxable status of the property based on the language of the lease. Representatives of the local governments and school district gave the “thumbs up” on a proposed deal that would see Signature with-

draw its lawsuit in return for concessions in its agreement with Westchester. In that draft settlement, Signature would extend its lease through 2026 in exchange for reduced rents of $200,000 a year beginning this year. The county would also agree to assign to Signature two existing leases at the airport, one with Avitat Westchester and the other with Westfair Aviation. Local officials said that draft agreement hinged entirely on Signature withdrawing its legal action and agreeing not to seek tax-exempt status for the life of the contract. The company would also pay $160,000 total in reimbursed cost and fees to the municipalities in the legal proceeding. The agreement, complete with endorsements from the local communities and the company, was ready to be reviewed by the board’s Budget & Appropriations and Government Operations committees. It was formerly submitted to the county on Nov. 12. That’s when the consensus fell apart. Sometime just before the board’s Dec. 9 meeting, the draft was changed. The revised version kept the lease provisions but no longer contained the portions that said Signature would remove its lawsuit and promise not to seek tax-exempt status. That was the version distributed and that a public hearing was County, page 4

INBRIEF

AVOn TO Ax 142 WeSTCHeSTer JOBS

Avon Products Inc. will eliminate 142 jobs at two Westchester locations next March after aborting the roll-out of a global program to change the company’s order service system. Avon officials notified the state Department of Labor Tuesday that 130 workers will lose their jobs in downtown White Plains when Avon closes its Service Model Transformation Project office at 44 S. Broadway. An additional 12 employees will be laid off in March at the Avon plant at 601 Midland Ave. in Rye. The women’s beauty products company, in a filing with the Securities and

Exchange Commission, said the workforce cuts here were part of a broader $400 million cost savings initiative in 2013 and 2014. Approximately 650 positions will be eliminated at Avon facilities in North America and around the world. The announced job cuts in Westchester stem from Avon’s recent decision to halt the roll out of its service model transformation project, a global program launched in 2009 to improve the company’s order management system. Avon invested approximately $125 million in software for the project.

earlier this year to extend its current contract beyond its Dec. 31 expiration. But the company hit a snag when the Federal Transit Administration said Westchester had to open a competitive bidding process or potentially lose $13 million in federal aid for the county’s bus system. Both contracts will last five years, with an option to add an additional five years. Liberty will be paid $113.65 million in 2014, according to a statement from Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino, which is $3.37 million less than 2013. PTLA’s 2014 payment of $2.37 million would be equal to what it paid in 2013.

The IDA board agreed to back a threeyear, estimated $23.4 million construction project at Ferndale Manor, a school that currently serves 67 residential and day students with severe developmental and physical disabilities on its six-acre city campus at 1154 Saw Mill River Road. School officials plan to build a two- story school building to replace trailers and nearby leased space for classes and erect 11 six-person residences. The existing 100-year-old residential building will be renovated as administration offices. City officials said Ferncliff for many years has been seeking alternative sites in Yonkers and Greenburgh for its outmoded campus. Yonkers officials said the campus project will keep 200 Ferndale Manor jobs in the city. The city IDA authorized $707,688 in sales tax exemptions on project construction materials and a property tax abatement that will be negotiated. Ferncliff Manor’s proposal still must be approved by three state agencies, the Education Department, Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities and Office for Children and Family Services. —John Golden, Mark Lungariello

scheduled for. Paul Rosenberg, the mayor of Rye Brook, said he and other village representatives, as well as school district officials, left that Dec. 9 meeting without knowing the document had been altered. “This version was not disclosed to the public, the village or the school district prior to or during the meeting,” he said in a Dec. 12 letter to the county board. “In addition, there was no discussion of any substantive changes to the draft of the local law which had publicly disseminated prior to the meeting.” Rosenberg later sent out an email blast urging residents to attend the public hearing and express their frustration. But even prior to the meeting, legislators agreed to “recommit” or shelf the discussions of the proposal until next year. Representatives of the company said neither was Signature consulted of any changes prior to the amendment. Larry Jorash, vice president of operations planning for Signature, said the revised legislation could have caused a financial tax burden that the company did not want. “A lot of time, effort and resources were exhausted to reach this agreement, which resulted in the proposed legislation originally submitted – only to have it changed without our knowledge,” he said. Jorash said the company was ready to continue to work together to reach a solution.


It’s true. When doctors become successful, they move to the suburbs.

Who can blame them? Westchester has charming town squares, top-tier school districts and one-of-a-kind homes. But if you’re a successful doctor, you don’t only care where you live. You also care where you work. That’s why they’re drawn to Bronxville’s Lawrence Hospital Center. Over the last five years, we’ve spent nearly $50 million in renovations. S uffice it to say, that kind of money buys a lot more than a new coat of paint and some soothing wall art. Let’s start with the room people often see first: The Emergency Room. We’ve done so much reconstructive surgery on it, you wouldn’t recognize the place. Modern. Sleek. Computerized. It’s ever ything

you’d want in a part of the hospital we hope you never have to visit. Of course, not every visit to our hospital is for a bad reason. Sometimes it’s for a good one. And there’s no better example of that than our Maternity Ward. Our nursery is spacious enough to handle a minor population explosion. And with 23 new private rooms, their mothers get some well-deser ved privacy. Each room has been designed with soft lighting, carpeting, Internet access and a flat-screen TV. In addition to our warm bedside manner, we have electronic bedside records. A laser-fast scan of your ID bracelet tells our nurses who you are and what medication you need. It’s an extra layer of security that helps eliminate the possibility of mistaken identity. Speaking of technology, we’ve improved our image with upgraded MRIs and Westchester’s first Low Dose CT Scan. A dose so low, it delivers up to 40% less radiation than the previous model. That said, technology is only half the story. People are the other half.

In an age when hospitals focus on the almighty dollar, we still focus on the almighty patient. Maybe that’s why nationally recognized doctors and award-winning surgeons who could work anywhere, choose to work here. We don’t just talk about compassionate care, we also

live and breathe it. No wonder people think it’s healthier to live in the suburbs. If you’d like the full hospital tour, visit lawrencehealth.org. Find out why so many top doctors call our hospital “home.”

for general laborers and more skilled workers are secured annually. “Days of snow and things like that are days that people can come in and hire workers,” said Carola Bracco, executive director of Neighbors Link. Usually very few jobs are available from December through February, and a snow shoveling job “might be the only work they have that week.” Founded in 2001 during a time of heightened tension between Hispanic immigrants and Mount Kisco police and house raids by local police and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that led to arrests and deportations of illegal residents, the nonprofit emphasizes its mission “to strengthen the whole community by actively enhancing the healthy integration of immigrants.” That mission has attracted 300 volunteers to help in the adult, children and family programs run by Neighbors Link on a budget that will total from $1.5 million to $1.6 million in 2014. The mission also has led Bracco, a former finance professional at General Electric Co., Ford Motor Co. and Time Inc. and one of nine children of middle-class Bolivian immigrants, to give cultural competency training to some 400 police officers in the county. She described the training as “conversations on how to successfully implement policing

in culturally diverse communities and break down some of the myths police might have about immigrants.” One of the organization’s collaborative partners in the community, Northern Westchester Hospital, has created cultural competency training for its staff, she said. Joel Seligman, Northern Westchester Hospital president and CEO, warned at the Maloney hearing that the health care industry has a chronic workforce shortage and the hospital has been unable to recruit and develop local talent because of the unresolved “immigration problem.” The Worker Center had been open for a few hours, but the men at the pool tables and café stools had not been hired for the day. With linguistic help from a translator, workers on their own arrange their hourly wage with contractors, homeowners and business employers who stop in. Most of the jobs are in landscaping – and about 70 percent of that hiring is by homeowners – but restaurant owners also show up looking to hire busboys and dishwashers. “We have days when we might fill 60 or 70 jobs and we have days when we might have zero,” Bracco said. If an employer does not request a specific person to hire, available workers are picked from daily lottery drawings at the center. The worker center “is pretty much half men and half women,” she said. “The women

don’t wait for work the way that men do.” They more often search the nonprofit’s online Job Bank for domestic positions such as housekeepers, party servers and elder care workers. A skills development class in ecocleaning has been “very empowering” for some women, Bracco said. Workers centers like this one in Mount Kisco are a critically needed alternative to the street corner locations where immigrants wait to be picked up for hire in many communities. On the streets, many workers have been cheated out of wages or left with untreated workplace injuries by employers, Bracco said. “These are huge issues. An organized workers center usually eliminates those.” At Neighbors Link, “We have zero unpaid wages,” Bracco said. “No question, for both the employer and the worker, being an organized center causes everyone to step up their game.” Among the regular job seekers at Neighbors Link, Mount Kisco resident Manuel Lemus spoke at the field hearing in English he has learned at the community center. Lemus left Guatemala for the U.S. in 2007 and for five years worked as a warehouse manager in New Jersey. But eventually he lost his job because he did not have a work permit, he said. Now he takes English and other classes at Neighbors Link. “For me, immigration reform opens many doors,” Lemus said. “Without reform, I

cannot achieve my dreams.” With legislation that would eventually make him a legal resident of the U.S., he could go to college and travel to Guatemala to visit his family, he said. For immigrant like Lemus, “We have hung out the ‘Help Wanted’ sign in this country,” Bracco said. “There has been a significant thirst for labor.” She said much the same in her testimony at the congressional field hearing. She and others in Mount Kisco have seen that “for the generation that chooses to migrate, it is a traumatic experience full of loss and sacrifice,” she testified. At Neighbors Link, staff and volunteers see families “dealing with the trauma and the loneliness and the anxiety of having migrated,” Bracco said. But their reception in their new community is improving, she said. “Twelve years ago in Mount Kisco, it was a tougher environment for immigrants. There was a lot of misunderstanding and fear. I think there’s been a whole transition in that conversation.” Still, for 21st century immigrants here, “I think it’s tougher because this wave of immigrants lives and works in the suburbs. So it’s more visible” than prior migrations of foreigners to American cities and factory jobs. At Neighbors Link, “All that we can do is start to prepare so if there is immigration reform, there’s enough legal support to process whatever documentation is required,” Bracco said.

end of the month. Paul Ryan, president of Westchester/ Putnam Central Labor Body, said Westchester’s unemployment rate for laborers in the construction industry is close to 40 percent. He said “people want to work,” but “their jobs are being taken away.” “We have skilled workers who have been unemployed for a long time,” Ryan said. “This extension of unemployment benefits is needed to sustain them.” Although the Tappan Zee Bridge project could spur employment, those union jobs won’t be available until 2015, Ryan said.

Lowey said she was shocked by the “failure of Congress to act,” which would “push many of our neighbors over a frightening financial cliff and hurt our economy.” She agreed Congress must retroactively extend the benefits as the first order of business when it returns in January. Lynette Kuykendall, an unemployed woman from Yorktown Heights, said not extending the unemployment insurance benefits would prevent her from paying rent let alone take online courses for a degree in cyber security at the University of Maryland. She worked in sales before losing her job last June and has been living in her car and staying

with friends on occasion. She said without the unemployment benefits, she wouldn’t be able to afford keeping a car because she doesn’t have money for gas or to pay for parking. “I’m not asking for a handout,” Kuykendall said. “I’ve been to the department of social services multiple times for assistance and it’s an ugly process. I show up at 8 a.m. every day and they say come back tomorrow.” Nationally, the budget deal will provide $63 billion for relief from the budget sequestration over two years: $45 billion in fiscal year 2014 and $18 billion in fiscal year 2015 split evenly between military and domestic programs.

mobile e-commerce technology lab, said a spokesman for Empire State Development in Albany. Barbara Rooney, MasterCard’s senior business leader for real estate and facilities management, said the company has outgrown its 475,000-square-foot space at 2000 Purchase St., the I.M Pei-designed building that MasterCard acquired from IBM Corp. in 1995. The company also leases 107,000 square feet of office space at 100 Manhattanville Road in Purchase. With the financial incentives approved by the state and county, MasterCard on Jan. 1 will lease an additional 14,000 square feet

of space in the Manhattanville Road building and extend its lease to 2025. Rooney said 56,000 square feet of space would be renovated there to accommodate additional employees. “We’re ready to swing hammers in January,” she said. The company also plans to renovate about one-third of its headquarters space on its 47-acre Purchase Road campus. MasterCard in its IDA application said the renovations and expansion project amounts to an estimated $39 million capital investment in Westchester over six years. The 270 new jobs will pay annual wages averag-

ing $151,000. The company also will increase its research and development expenditures in New York to approximately $10 million yearly by 2018. County Executive Robert P. Astorino at the IDA meeting called MasterCard’s decision to retain and add jobs in Purchase “a happy day for Westchester” and thanked the company for its continued presence in Westchester. Astorino spoke of his dismay and disbelief at finding that county departments used Visa cards for official business when he first took office nearly four years ago. He ordered an immediate switch to MasterCard plastic.

Irreplaceable? Think again When I hire people, after a while many of them get comfortable with their jobs. Even worse, some of them come to think they’re untouchable. I know they’ve grown into important roles, but that kind of attitude isn’t good for the company. What should I do?

Thoughts of the Day: Build an organization of team players by giving people goals and challenges. Remember, no matter how key an employee may seem to be, everyone is replaceable. Use regular reviews to tell people where they stand. It all comes down to what you’re willing to accept, and whether or not you’re willing to make and enforce demands. A team of employees focused on a common goal working together to understand and overcome a set of challenges can accomplish substantially more than any single individual. Assign all employees to teams. Look for opportunities to have people overlap duties and back up other positions. Target the people who are isolated either by

job function or by personal choice. For starters, ask them to join a group project, with a clearly defined goal and a leader who is good at including team members. Make it clear that part of their performance review is based on how well they perform as a team member. Ask the team leader for regular updates. If necessary, provide one-on-one counseling to the people you’re working to turn into collaborators. Sometimes you may run into a fit issue: meaning, the people you’re counseling are having trouble fitting in as productive team members. Document the work they do. Start cross training others to do some, or all, of their job. Keep in mind that your responsibility is to the company overall. With enough documentation and cross training, even key players can be replaced. Meet individually and explain that subpar performance on a team could get in the way of making progress in the company. If behavior is especially disruptive or if you’ve been through multiple counseling sessions and there’s no real progress, make sure that person knows that they could be facing consequences up to and including termination if they don’t shape up. Don’t be subtle at this stage. Make sure the message gets across.

At the same time that you’re telling people they’re in trouble, post their jobs and look for potential replacement candidates. Many times managers and business owners hesitate to draw the line with disruptive or uncooperative employees because they fear no one else can do the job. Looking for replacements and training others to do some, or all, of the job will give you options. In general, it is wise to conduct reviews with people once or twice a year. Try to keep people on their toes by finding the balance between giving them new tasks to master and allowing them sufficient time to get good at existing assignments. Everyone should have a mix of some new things to learn, some things they can do really well and a bunch of things that they’re working toward mastering. Set the tone for the company as you conduct reviews. Give people realistic stretch goals. Put it in the context of what the company has to achieve in the upcoming year and how their success at mastering new goals is essential to that progress. Make time to review company results and to plan out what’s needed for the company going forward. Make it your job to demand

excellence from everyone around you, starting with yourself. Create a culture of accountability, responsibility and striving to achieve. Limit the time you spend with marginal performers, energy suckers and self-serving individuals. Recognize and reward the people who perform in an atmosphere of collaboration, cooperation and acting in the best interests of the company. Give them 80 percent of your time. After all, the team players are your future. Book recommendation: “HR from the Heart: Inspiring Stories and Strategies for Building the People Side of Great Business” by Martha Finney.

Twilight at home

Eight aging-in-place efforts and counting BY CRYSTAL KANG ckang@westfairinc.com

A

s the tide of seniors aging in place continues to rise in a phenomenon called the “silver tsunami,” grassroots organizations in Westchester are finding ways to connect adults age 65 and older with businesses and services that keep the elderly active, healthy and aging comfortably at home. In 2009, Lois Steinberg and Robert Waldman founded The Center for Aging in Place, the first nonprofit in Westchester focused on connecting volunteers and professionals with seniors aging in place. The idea was to provide a network of resources seniors can consistently rely on for home care services and then to spread the word about their aging-in-place model. In New York state, there will be a nearly 40 percent increase in the number of adults age 65 and older by 2040, according to U.S. Census data. The population of adults age 85 and older will grow by 48 percent from 2010 to 2050. New Rochelle is projected to lead the state with 70 percent more adults age 85 and older by 2040, according to LeadingAge, a nonprofit focused on education, advocacy and applied research. The national population of adults age 65 and older will increase by more than one-third within the next 10 years and by 2030 the ratio of children to seniors will be almost even for the first time in U.S. history. As a sociologist, Steinberg grew interested in peer networks for older adults while working at the Medicare Rights Center. She created an organization called Seniors Speaking Out Medicare and mobilized older adult volunteers in Westchester to provide health care counseling and information about health rights to middle- and lower-income older adults in senior centers, clubs and religious organizations. After the outreach, Steinberg took the next step to develop The Center for Aging in Place in Tarrytown, providing further training for her volunteer staff, who are mostly adults age 65 and older, and giving advocacy tools to older adults and their adult children.

“The initial sparks of the whole concept grew out of an article in The New York Times,” Steinberg said. “I read about a program in Beacon Hill in Boston that started a volunteer organization for seniors aging in place. It was entirely operated by seniors and it took them six years before they got the program going.” The Center for Aging in Place was a startup funded through the Helen Andrus Benedict Foundation, which distributes $10,000 annually to a handful of age-friendly business initiatives in Westchester. Shortly after, the founders reached out to 50 individuals in Westchester and encouraged them to start their own grassroots organizations in their communities. Since the first resource center for seniors aging in place opened in 2009, Westchester has expanded to eight organizations including groups that serve the elderly in Yonkers, Bronxville, Scarsdale, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Ossining, Briarcliff, Bedford, Rye, Port Chester, Harrison and White Plains. Four of these organizations have hired either full- or part-time executive directors, while the other four are operated by volunteers. Steinberg said aging-in-place organizations are gaining momentum in Westchester with two more expected to emerge in Tarrytown and New Rochelle. The grassroots organizations serve a twofold purpose for seniors aging in place. They

provide resources for home care services and allow seniors to stay active in the community. “When you retire from a lifelong career, then what will you do?” Steinberg said. “This model will help generate the concept of older people getting involved in programs that help older people stay healthy and productive.” At age 87, Steinberg, executive director of the center, is an example of a senior who is staying active. She said she hopes to continue developing new strategies with her board members and working alongside consultants to find the most productive and sustainable model for aging in place programs. Waldman, co-founder and developer at the center, even created a database that logs information gathered through his organization. This includes the number of volunteer hours provided and the types of services requested by seniors to give potential investors a resource that quantifies the impact businesses can make by building a sustainable model around seniors aging in place. Not only are grassroots organizations noticing an influx of older adults choosing to age at home, but businesses have also begun reaching out to aging in place groups, too. Two years ago, the center started a Life+ Business Network after multiple companies requested to connect with Westchester resi-

dents who are aging in place. Businesses see the value of joining aging in place programs because it allows them to educate older adults, share their products and services and capitalize on this growing market segment, said Laura Traynor, a consultant with the center who founded the network. “We have a rapidly growing demographic of seniors aging in place,” Traynor said. “From the county’s perspective, you want to keep people in their homes, paying taxes and buying goods and services.” Not only do businesses that provide inhome services join the network, but several assisted-living facilities have jumped on board with the mindset of staying connected with older adults who may need their services when those seniors aging in place transition to care centers. The businesses that have joined the Life+ Business Network include retirement communities such as United Hebrew in New Rochelle, which provides skilled nursing, rehabilitation and assisted living complexes; and The Bristal in White Plains, a luxury assisted living residence serving 190 residents. An assisted living facility in Armonk is scheduled to open next year and has expressed an interest in joining the Life+ Business Network as well. As more seniors age in place, businesses that provide visiting nurses will experience the most growth. Visiting Nurse Service of New York, the nation’s largest nonprofit home-based health care agency, started expanding in Westchester in 2004. It now provides services and products to more than 4,000 residents in the county, while the number of Westchester residents receiving services through visiting nurses nearly doubled over the last three years, Traynor said. Regional offices for visiting nurse services are in Rye Brook and White Plains and employ more than 100 Westchester residents. The newest programs in the field are transitional care and population management, which help patients move from facility to home to avoid re-hospitalization and reduce costs both to individuals and to the community.

A problem solver for the issues of aging BY CrYstAl KAng ckang@westfairinc.com

B

efore Susan Yubas, certified senior adviser based in Rye, started her consulting business for the elderly in Westchester four years ago, her friends and neighbors were constantly asking for advice on what to do as their parents got older. Baby boomers wanted to know how to address their parents’ health, financial, living and social needs. “It’s the adult children who come to me because they don’t know who to call,” said Yubas, former director of business management at the Bristal, a luxury assisted living residence in White Plains. “But sometimes the older adult calls and says, ‘I really can’t talk to my children about this.’ So they need someone who is not as emotionally attached to the family and more objective to help come up with a solution.” Yubas, who founded FYI Senior Living Solutions Inc. in 2009, said she regularly meets with families and health care providers to discuss ways to support the aging

population in Westchester. The individual consultations are free and Yubas always visits the seniors and their caregivers in the nonthreatening environment of their homes. She said often the biggest barrier to starting the conversation is the denial that seniors need more services as they get older, especially if they plan to age in place. Yubas’ responsibility is to work with

caregivers and identify the right resources and living options for seniors, especially given the variables of each family situation. “Working with a family is a very intimate experience because I learn about their financial situation and family dynamics,” Yubas said. “And most people wait and call only when they’re in a crisis, so there’s an emotional component to this, as well.” Over the past four years, Yubas has built networks with home care providers, geriatric centers, accountants, physicians and lawyers in Westchester who provide services for her clients. She gives her clients a list of contacts that provide specific services tailored to the individual’s needs based on her conversations with the seniors and their caregivers. “I refer them to a minimum of three care providers,” said Yubas, who has a 35-year career working for hospitals and long-term and management-care services. “If I’m referring them to professionals, I make sure they’re willing to work with them and their personality has to match.

It’s up to the family if they want me to be the intermediary on their behalf or if they just want to take the referrals and proceed on their own.” Consulting services catered toward seniors will continue to grow in Westchester as more of the aging population decides to weigh out their options after retirement, Yubas said. “There is a definite desire for elderly people in Westchester to stay in Westchester,” she said. “People are staying in Westchester to be closer to their children and their health care provider. They stay in Westchester because it’s familiar and comfortable.” In the past three months, Yubas said more health-service providers are approaching her to request advice on how to better serve the aging population. “Many organizations have not shifted their focus on how health care providers, businesses and organizations can provide services to older adults and meet the needs of an aging county,” Yubas said. “But I’m trying to get professionals to be more proactive.”

The Barnum way

Executives focus on retirement proves a boon By Bill Fallon bfallon@westfairinc.com

M

anaging director Paul Blanco has piloted a one-time, nine-person MetLife office in Shelton, Conn., for two decades to become the 13-office Barnum Financial Group, with 275 financial advisers among a total 400 employees. Barnum manages $7 billion – up from $1 billion in 2004-05 – while remaining a MetLife office. It has done business as Barnum since 1999, making its then-intracompany name its public face. The company – including a new office in Elmsford as well established ones in Greenwich, Stamford and Shelton – crossed $1 million in revenue in 1999 and this year expects $66 million in revenue. Barnum has reached out to companies with financial planning seminars, including retirement-themed classes that came to be known as RetireWise. “We had three majors right away,” Blanco said of corporate interest. Barnum was, in fact, filling

a niche Blanco had noticed; corporations were cutting back on the sort of staff that might help with things like insurance and finance. MetLife adopted that program, too, and now runs PlanSmart corporationwide (with RetireWise “at its core,” Blanco said.) Barnum representatives still manage 150 companies through the program and act for MetLife in a teaching leadership role for the program, an arrangement that now features two Barnum-based RetireWise directors who deal directly with corporate HR directors. Blanco called it “the Frank Sinatra model – they set it up and we teach.” He explained, “Sinatra never set up the stage.” The teaching programs are working well, Blanco said. In 2001 MetLife counted 89 of the Fortune 500 as clients; today after one of the rockier decades in economic history, the number is 91. “Companies hear what we offer and they say, ‘Wow, they have all these things.’ We become like an extra

Michael J. Amoruso: Shedding light on disability, elder issues By Frank Pagani

“N

ot a day goes by that my routine is not disrupted because I must advocate for my right to allow my Seeing Eye dog to guide me through the doors of public buildings – and I am a lawyer. Can you imagine how difficult and demoralizing that would be for someone who doesn’t have the legal training and/or assertiveness that I possess?” So wrote Michael J. Amoruso, managing partner of Rye Brook-based Amoruso & Amoruso L.L.P. in an article published earlier this year

in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) magazine. In it, he made a powerfully persuasive argument for the U.S. Congress to act to correct the language in a 20-year law that created a misplaced presumption that a person with disabilities lacks the equality or mental capacity to enter into a supplemental needs trust (SNT). “Congress made what

appears to be a legislative drafting error limiting the establishment of SNTs to the parent, grandparent, legal guardian or court … but not the individual,” Amoruso said. But, in so doing, it made a presumption about the competency of disabled people, one that we would not make about President Franklin Roosevelt, Helen Keller, Ray Charles or our wounded veter-

ans, Amoruso noted. Since becoming chairman of the NAELA’s Public Policy Committee this year, Amoruso has been hard at work to attract more senators and Congressional representatives to sponsor passage of the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act, which would end the longstanding injustice by simply adding the phrase “by such individuals” to the original measure so that “those of us who have disabilities can regain the dignity we deserve.” Amoruso is confident that the change in the law, one that is a simple fix and will not be costly, Amoruso, page 13

When an arthritic hip needs to be replaced. . .

EXPERIENCE COUNTS

Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in Sleepy Hollow has long been known as a leader in joint replacement surgery. The first total hip replacement in Westchester County was performed at Phelps by Dr. George Burak in 1969. In 2006, his son, Dr. Corey Burak, was the first in Westchester to perform Anterior Approach Hip Replacement. Since then, more than 1,500 patients have traveled to Phelps from near and far for hip replacement by the most experienced anterior approach team in the Northeast.

arm of the company.” Barnum keeps education forefront via hour-long seminars for clients at lunchtime, as well, with the upshot, in Blanco’s words, “We’re the planning firm of choice for their employees.” Blanco is a big fan of teamwork. “If you think about our industry, it’s hard to be a one-trick pony,” he said. Drawing on a sports analogy, he said a basketball point guard, no matter how good, is ill suited as a center. Barnum teams are typically two specialists and a manager, but the format is, by design, fluid and some teams feature five advisers. “The point guard is built to fail at center – bumping around under the rim with those 6’ 11” guys,” Blanco said. “Why not do what you do best and do a lot?” The company culture emerged in an anecdote about its latest office. This year, Barnum expanded into Elmsford, where a smaller MetLife office was in business and where Barnum would consolidate its White Plains office of 25, uniting a total 80 employees fully under the Barnum umbrella. Blanco at first bridled at the Elmsford office and its new 1,800-square-foot addition. “It wasn’t a bad-looking place, but it was dark and a little gloomy when I saw it,” he said. “The long and short of it is that place was not gloomy, but it did not have the Barnum employees there yet. It’s not about the way a place looks, it’s the way the employees act. The place is terrific. We have a lot of energy, a lot of smiles, huge professionalism and a learning culture.”

will pass Congress in the near future. “My personal experience is the passion that fuels me,” said Amoruso, who has had hearing loss since he was a child and started to go blind as a young man – disabilities he did not allow to get in the way of his becoming a prominent elder law/ estate planning and special needs attorney. In addition, he is also a New York Metro Super Lawyer for Elder Law (a top legal profession ranking he earned three years in a row since 2010), as well as an influential and respected advocate on public policy issues impacting elder law and special needs issues on the local, state and national levels. As Amoruso’s former mentor and retired judge Vincent A. Delorio observed in an article in the September 2013 issue of New York Metro Super Lawyers magazine: “He has more empathy as a result of his own personal issues and is more receptive, patient and understanding of people’s problems.” When Amoruso graduated from Boston College Law School, he contemplated a mergers and acquisition practice. But, the experience of working pro bono on a special needs case for a disabled woman made him realize what he really wanted to do. In 2001, he and his attorney wife and partner, Sreelekha, established the firm. In building a successful practice, he has been guided by a family Italian motto: “Avanti, sempre avanti”, which translates to “Forward, always forward.” That, combined with a business approach about taking the time to listen carefully to his client’s problems and tailoring solutionsbased plans, has produced a strong referral base of grateful clients. The personal satisfaction Amoruso derives each time he helps bring peace of mind to a client is its best reward. Case in point is a 70-year-old woman who had been taking care of her paraplegic husband in their home and recognized that as she got older, it would become more difficult for her to continue to do that. It took more than a year and a half of research and Amoruso personally making phone calls to facilities himself, but he found the right one that would provide the care the husband needed while allowing the wife to visit every day. Keeping abreast of changes impacting elder law practice gives him an edge to act proactively on behalf of his clients. He finds one recent development especially troubling. It is the shift in the New York

state Medicaid program to a managed care model that has dramatically cut the long-term live-in allowance from 13 days to six days per month. He says the reduction potentially puts some individuals, especially those suffering from dementia in harm’s way, as they are in critical need of this service. What’s his strategy to deal with this latest challenge to his clients? As with other issues he has successfully fought, his guidance will be focused and his advocacy voice will be loud and clear. After all, he is emboldened yet again by “Avanti, sempre avanti.” Winners Circle is a biweekly feature that takes a look at the top women business executives and top attorneys, men and women, in the region.

FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to "save" your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner's distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. # 59134

GOOD HAppening in AnD ThInGS ABoUt tHe HUDson vAlleY SPeCIAl exHIBIT AT VASSAr COllege

lOCAl FArMS geT A BOOST sCeniC huDson is collaborating with huDson valley harvesT to raise public awareness of the relationship between preserving Hudson Valley farmland and the public’s access to food from local farms. Now products offered by Hudson Valley Harvest carry a special label indicating that the purchase helps Scenic Hudson preserve Hudson Valley farmland. Both organizations share an interest in expanding local farming and related businesses as well as bringing consumers fresh, healthy foods. The co-branding program seeks to help keep more local farms in farming and to seize opportunities to grow the economic benefits agriculture gives to the region. While the label on each product is not big – slightly larger than a postage stamp – the project’s impacts could be. For those who support farmland conservation, the label highlights local foods that can be purchased to help the cause. For those who like to buy farm-fresh foods grown by neighbors, the label underscores that conserved farmland supports family farms that make more of the good stuff available. Scenic Hudson and Hudson Valley Harvest also hope that the effort will engage new people to champion farmland preservation and buy foods from valley farms. Hudson Valley Harvest sources, packages and distributes foods that come from local farms. The organization works with farmers to offer consumers vegetables ranging from broccoli and green beans to kale and collard greens – all packaged at the peak of quality so they are filled with nutrients. Beef and pork come from pasture-based farms that don’t use preventive antibiotics or appetite stimulants. Consumers can look for the Scenic Hudson-labeled Hudson Valley Harvest products in Albany at Honest Weight Food Co-op, in High Falls at High Falls Food Co-op, in Red Hook at Gigi Market, in Clinton Corners at Clinton Cheese & Provisions, in Poughkeepsie at Adams Fairacre Farms, in Wappinger at Adams Fairacre Farms, in Fishkill at Nature’s Pantry and in New Windsor at Nature’s Pantry.

Today, Hudson Valley agriculture is an $800 million industry and recent reports have indicated that unmet annual demand for valleygrown food in New York City alone exceeds $600 million. Preserved farmland also is critical to a $4.2-billion tourism industry in the valley that employs 80,000 people. In addition, farmland represents natural areas and open space that help attract and retain businesses. Finally, eating healthier foods that don’t travel across the country or world to reach our tables improves people’s health and the environment. In terms of direct financial support for farmland preservation, a nickel from the sale of each Hudson Valley Harvest product will go to Scenic Hudson to directly support its farmland work. To date, Scenic Hudson has invested more than $21 million in preserving 12,000 acres on nearly 75 Hudson Valley farms in five counties. Scenic Hudson Senior Vice President sTeve rosenberg sees this new program with Hudson Valley Harvest as a great way to let consumers invest in something good for their community while they also enjoy the best local food. “The smaller, family-owned farms here in the Hudson Valley help drive our economy, contribute to a secure source of nourishing food and support a healthy environment for people and wildlife.” Hudson Valley Harvest President paul alWarD, who is a farmer, said, “This initiative is just the latest example of Scenic Hudson pioneering what’s possible when it comes to community and the environment.” Scenic Hudson President neD sullivan said, “Expanding the means of getting nutritious food from valley farms to consumers is a critical part of a regional food system. Hudson Valley Harvest is a visionary and effective player in this regard. This group and the farm families and retailers they are working with are doing important work and Scenic Hudson is really excited to be partnering with Hudson Valley Harvest.”

More than 100 paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs by top participants ages 11-19 from the Junior Art Institute and Art Institute of Mill Street Loft programs, will be shown in the juried “Teen Visions” exhibit at Vassar College James W. Palmer III ’90 Gallery in Poughkeepsie, from Jan. 23 through Feb. 13. Spanning artwork in a wide variety of media, the pieces were selected by a panel of educators from more than 1,500 submissions, based upon artistic statement, vision and visual acuity, as well as individual accomplishment. The artists are 6th graders through seniors from more than 30 schools in the mid-Hudson Valley. The show is expanding this year, with work of the Art Institute students (ages 14-19) being shown in the Palmer Gallery; works from the Junior Art Institute (ages 11-14) will be exhibited in the Faculty Commons. There will be an opening artists’ reception Jan. 23 at 4:30 p.m. in the gallery featuring brief remarks from Carol Wolf, executive director of Mill Street Loft; ToDD poTeeT, director of the Art Institute of Mill Street Loft; and Vassar’s Teresa Quinn, director of the Palmer Gallery. The gallery is open Mondays to Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. The Art Institute of Mill Street Loft and its Junior Art Institute program are pre-college portfolio development programs to prepare career-minded teens to attend top art schools and to eventually become working professional artists. Since 2000, Art Institute graduates have received offers of more than $28 million in merit-based scholarships to some of the nation’s major colleges, universities and art schools. “This is the first year we are showcasing the work of some of younger artists in the program,” Poteet said. “These students demonstrate through their work that they are capable of masterful creations far beyond what we would normally expect.”

POlICe OFFer PreSCrIPTIOn drUg dISPOSAl SITe The CiTy of KingsTon poliCe DeparTMenT has been selected as the site for a MedReturn drop box, said Cheryl Depaolo, director of the Ulster Prevention Council, a program of Family Services. The box is available at police headquarters, 1 Garraghan Drive. No paperwork is required; unwanted and outdated drugs may be dropped off anonymously. Funding for the drop box was provided by ACTAVIS, a specialty pharmaceutical firm with U.S. administrative headquarters in Parsippany, N.J. “Actavis is proud to partner with the Ulster Prevention Council and Family Services to raise awareness and educate consumers about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and to underscore the importance of disposing of these drugs properly,” said paul bisaro, chairman and CEO of Actavis. “By providing a safe, secure location for the disposal of unused, expired or unneeded medications, disposal boxes such as these highlight our commitment to being a national leader in the fight against prescription drug abuse.” DePaolo said she believes the placement of the drop box in the most populous area of the county will help combat the growing abuse of prescription drugs, especially by young people. “We know that 18.5 percent of Ulster County high school
