Newsday features Cona Elder Law's Charity

Senior Dreams Come True

Senior Dreams Come True, a nonprofit program founded and run by Cona Elder Law, benefits low income seniors on Long Island by granting wishes – from helping a senior meet basic needs to fulfilling a lifelong dream. The program especially looks to grant wishes for seniors who have given back to their communities or helped others in their lifetime.  


Sally Lepis, 102, was granted her wish for new hearing aids by Senior Dreams Come True. To fulfill Sally’s wish, Senior Dreams reached out to David Carr, owner and director of McGuire’s Hearing Center headquartered in Centereach with 10 facilities in the New York City and LI areas. He generously agreed to donate two of the most advanced small, custom in-canal hearing aids including four appointments with the audiologist.
