The Queens Interagency Council for the Aging (QICA) is holding its
monthly community meeting on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from
9:00am to 11:00am at Queens Borough Hall, room 213, 120-55 Queens
Boulevard, Kew Gardens, NY. Registration starts at 9:00am served with a
continental breakfast. The program begins promptly at 9:30am.
Marking its 47th anniversary year, QICA invites seniors, service
professionals and elected officials to learn about the scourge of Alzheimer’s
Disease and Dementia, a burgeoning disease that disproportionally affects
seniors in their “Golden Years”.
A comprehensive program has been planned to cover a range of topics
starting with the difference between Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, the
symptoms and stages of Alzheimer’s disease, clinical diagnosis and care and
family caregiver issues on managing stress and seeking help. Discussion will
include the latest field research being done today and the program will
conclude with a solid grounding in the financial and legal aspects of providing
for long-term care, knowing your rights under the law, protecting ones assets and the benefits of Irrevocable Living Trusts.
We urge your attendance to hear and talk to knowledgeable experts including Mr. Ronald A. Fatoullah, J.D. CELA,* a noted Elder Law Attorney
and senior advocate, Dr. Anafidelia Tavares, MD, MPH, Director of Programs, NYC Chapter, Alzheimer’s Association and Ms. Rita Greenfield, LMSW, representing CaringKind, Inc.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is very limited; preregistration is required. Contact QICA at (718) 268-5954/Fax (718) 268-5952.
QICA is a borough-wide coalition of more than a hundred organizations and individuals providing services to senior adults. The program is part of QICA’s commitment to improve communication among senior service organizations, legislators and policy makers, and to keep its membership informed of current issues related to the older adult.
