As a way to provide senior citizens with important information about medical services and in-home care service opportunities, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is partnering, this month, with the local organization Beacon Eldercare Inc., a licensed home care agency and social work agency for a virtual presentation on the benefits of a variety of senior gadgets.

On Monday, March 28, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., Yvonne Murphy, MA, CEO and founder of Beacon Eldercare, will give a virtual presentation to all attendees on several different affordable gadgets that can make senior citizens’ lives easier. This virtual event will be held on Zoom, and the link to join the presentation is: Additionally, the Meeting ID is: 890 5562 5272, and the passcode is: 454864.

For this informational presentation, Mrs. Murphy has hand-picked these gadgets specifically for seniors. Understanding the needs of older adults, dealing with the aging process, medical requirements, and disabilities caused her to seek out affordable gadgets that made sense for senior citizens. Two of her many outstanding selections to be presented are the Healthy Seniors Squeeze Balls for Hand Therapy and the Healthy Seniors Jar Opener Set, along with several others.

“As we age many aspects of life that we previously took for granted can become more difficult. Learning about items that can help ease these difficulties can be game changers for seniors,” said Addabbo, a member of the Senate Aging Committee. “I am grateful for Yvonne Murphy and Beacon Eldercare for searching all over for these gadgets and then bringing that information to my constituents through this virtual presentation.”

Mrs. Murphy has two Masters Degrees, one in Social Work and one in Forensic Psychology, as well as over 20 years of experience with long term care, home health care,  housing options, geriatric care management, and Medicaid consulting and supporting families who are caring for elderly loved ones.

“I would like to thank Senator Addabbo for inviting Beacon Eldercare to share with the senior and disabled community simple gadgets that will make their life and day-to-day activities easier and stress free,” she said. “As a licensed home care agency we see the struggles that the seniors have in the community to complete simple tasks. I am confident the participants will benefit from the information provided in our workshop.”

“I would like to thank Yvonne Murphy MA and everyone at Beacon Eldercare for taking the time to speak with my constituents,” Senator Addabbo added. “I would love to see many of my seniors and their family members take part in this informational presentation. One of the featured products may make your life a little easier. If this presentation works well, I hope to partner with Beacon Eldercare again for another presentation for seniors and their families on a different topic.”
