No one ever asks to be diagnosed with dementia, but six years ago, Brian LeBlanc was. “Sometimes you don’t get what you asked for, but what you do have you should make the most of it,” says LeBlanc. His symptoms started in 2008 and he was officially diagnosed in 2014. He’s no stranger to this disease. In fact, dementia spreads through the roots of LeBlanc’s family tree. “I’m fourth generation,” he says. “My great-grandmother who I didn’t know, my grandfather. After that my father was diagnosed with vascular dementia, then my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.”Now LeBlanc is living with early onset Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. It was discovered after the simple task of getting take-out became something beyond his control.

My father required Nursing home care and between my Mother and I we were confused and worried about the situation, and how we would be able to manage the entire situation, from Nursing home selection to Medicaid Eligibility. My Mom is in Florida, and I am in New York, so we needed some help. I was able to find Maureen Rulison. To say she was a Godsend would only begin to describe Maureen. Not only is she completely and professionally knowledgeable
with the laws and regulations, she is a delight to be around, and took special and personal
interest in my Mom’s physical, mental, and financial well-being. Maureen provided exactly what our family needed through the difficult years with Dad. I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you work with Maureen. You will be blessed with a person who cares and knows exactly what needs to be done.

Maureen Rulison assisted my wife and I with the Medicaid Planning and approval process. We could not have this without Maureen. Maureen was attentive, supportive and responsive to our needs. I highly recommend Maureen to anyone requiring these services.
We were blessed to have Maureen guide us in applying for Medicaid for my wife. I am a very organized and detail-oriented person, a CPA by training and experience. Even with all my experience and organizational skills, I could not even begin to navigate the requirements of the Medicaid application without Maureen’s experience, knowledge and guidance. Maureen Rulison, in addition to being experienced in all facets of the Medicaid application process, is a patient and kind counselor. Maureen kept us focused on the tasks at hand, as she bridged the process between us and the government agencies. We have been truly blessed by Maureen’s counsel, kindness, knowledge and friendship. She is truly a credit to her profession as an advocate for her clients.
Maureen was extremely helpful in guiding us through all options for our moms
long term care. Her immense knowledge the Medicaid process and facilities in
the area allowed us to make the best choice – and we could not be more satisfied. She provided updates throughout the process of applying for Medicaid and is still a great resource for questions that arise.
When my mother’s dementia became apparent to us we visited with our family
attorney who helped us update her will, and we established an income trust for her, in case she should have to go on Medicaid â€“ which we didn’t think was
likely. Three years later, Mom needed to move from an ALF to a nursing home with memory care, and the cost would have wiped out her remaining savings very quickly. We had heard that it was very difficult and time consuming to qualify, and we
were overwhelmed with the medical and emotional aspects of her care, so we
had little time for navigating the confusing and complex state regulations.
Fortunately, a friend recommended Maureen Rulison to us. Maureen managed every aspect of applying to the state, replying to their various requests, and carefully following up on each item. As a result, when Mom finally got settled in her new nursing home, her Medicaid covered her from the very first day. Thanks, Maureen, for helping us out in our time of great need.
Maureen was very caring and compassionate in my time of need. I could not have made it
through my difficult times without her guidance. I would highly recommend her professional services in your time of need.
I highly recommend the services of Maureen Rulison as President of Caregivers Support and Resources, LLC. I obtained the services of Maureen in filing a Medicaid application I found her to be very knowledgeable and she worked tirelessly to complete the paperwork. She followed through without delay in processing the application. Her assistance was above and beyond reproach. I would highly recommend her services.
