Our daughter, Liza, entering her sophomore year at Hofstra University, is interning at our office this summer. She assists with opening files and scanning documents into our system, and is in the field with out geriatric care coordinators one day each week.
After her first week, her first observation was how busy we all were throughout the day. Apparently, she was under the impression we sat around all day simply talking with one another.
Most importantly, over the past several weeks, she has had the opportunity to observe firsthand what I actual do on a daily basis. She has sat in on client and staff meetings. I am proud of what our elder care law team does and I am even prouder to share what we do with my daughter. I believe she has gained a new appreciation of what we love to do, and I have gained the satisfaction of showing a loved one what I love to do – helping seniors, those with disabilities and their loved ones.
