    200th Show Special with MCC President Jessica Walker

    in Business

    On April 27, my guest will be Jessica Walker, the President of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. She is a public policy expert who has advocated on behalf of New York City residents, neighborhoods and businesses for more than 15 years -- with successes in every role taken on. Her work has left an indelible imprint on the city that she loves.


    Before joining the Chamber in 2016 she served as Vice President for Government Affairs at the Partnership for New York City, which represents the city’s major corporate employers. Jessica served as the chief liaison between elected officials and the city’s business leaders and as a policy analyst/advisor/writer for the organization's influential CEO. The objective was to advance pro-growth policies and forge public-private partnerships that strengthen New York City’s economy and create jobs. Prior to that, Jessica was a leading advocate for elderly New Yorkers.


    At the New York Academy of Medicine she oversaw the launch of Age-friendly New York City, a public-private initiative designed to make the city a better place in which to grow old. Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg implemented 59 policy improvements based on this work such as lengthening the time allotted for pedestrians to cross street intersections.


    Jessica also served as a policy expert at United Neighborhood Houses of New York, an association of settlement houses and community centers throughout the five boroughs. There, she led the organization's research, advocacy and policy work on issues relating to older adults and their social service needs.


    She also led a successful pilot initiative to increase utilization of geriatric mental health services and authored an influential report that dramatically heightened the city’s response to the high numbers of New York seniors aging alone and “at risk” of becoming socially isolated.

  • January Jones-Eldercare with Becky Feola

    in Family

    Meet Becky Feola author of The Eldercare Consultant, Your Guide to Making the Best Choices Possible


    Your elderly father's memory is failing fast. Your increasingly frail mother just took another fall. Whatever the situation, The Eldercare Consultant can provide the knowledge, support, and encouragement you seek.


    Weaving together real-life stories with the essential information needed to make the best decisions, this compassionate and practical guide helps you: spot warning signs of physical and mental decline; recognize when a loved one needs assistance; determine the level of care needed; evaluate the options - family care giver, home health care, palliative care, senior housing, assisted living facilities - and select the right one.


    It supports you to discuss the issue with your loved one; understand and manage the costs of care; make the adjustment as smooth as possible; and avoid care giver burnout. Author and eldercare expert Becky Feola knows first-hand that caring for someone who is no longer in complete control is hard...and the decision to seek outside help is one fraught with emotion. Her book helps cut the confusion, and turn an undeniably difficult transition into a journey of hope and love.
