Jennifer Cona, Esq., managing partner of the elder law and estate planning firm Cona Elder Law, Melville, and a member of the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) Legal Advisory Board will present a free Elder Law Clinic for family members of someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
It will take place on Thursday, July 25th from 4 PM – 7 PM at LIAF located at 5 Channel Drive, Port Washington, LI. The 20 minute presentation by Ms. Cona will be followed by complimentary, private 15 minute mini-consultations with a Cona Elder Law attorney.
All attendees must RSVP by calling LIAF at 516-767-6856.
"Family members are often overwhelmed with the complex health, caregiving and financial issues involved when dealing with a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or dementia,” says Ms. Cona. “At the Elder Law Clinic, we will be providing information on elder law and estate planning matters to help family members navigate the elder law landscape and make informed decisions.”
Some of the issues to be discussed are:
• The pros & cons of different trusts
• How to decide whether an irrevocable or revocable trust is right for your family
• How to protect your assets if you or a loved one needs long term care
LIAF will provide information on their programming for people in early, middle and late-stages as well as programs for the caregivers, including respite care and support groups.
Located in Port Washington, LIAF was founded in 1988 in a grassroots fashion by five Long Island women. Each of these women had a parent or grandparent dealing with a form of memory loss and shared the frustration of not knowing where to turn for much-needed help.
For 25 years, LIAF has been providing supportive community-based services to Alzheimer’s families in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties. LIAF takes considerable pride in its pioneering role in the development of cutting edge services that foster the independence, dignity, well-being and safety of individuals with Alzheimer’s, thus aiding in the prevention of premature nursing home placement. LIAF’s programs offer help and hope for families grappling with Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia.
