Elder Law Seminars hosted by Flushing House


| editorial@queenscourier.com |



As in previous years, Flushing House has scheduled “Elder Law Seminars” for this spring.

The seminars will focus on how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid Re‐Design in New York State may impact health care and home care services for older adults. Medicare changes arising from the ACA will also be explored along with asset protection trusts and estate planning.

Ronald Fatoullah, Esq., noted elder law attorney, will give his seminar on Saturday, June 8. Fatoullah will give an overview of the Medicaid program and explain how to protect one’s assets in the event long‐term health care is needed. He will also review five essential legal documents that seniors should have – the importance of a (i) last will and testament (ii) power of attorney (iii) health care proxy (iv) living will and (v) living trust.

AnnMargaret Carrozza, Esq., noted elder law attorney and former state Assemblymember, will give her seminar on Saturday, June 15. Seniors should know how to protect their homes. Carrozza will explore asset protection trusts for primary residences, and estate tax planning, in light of 2013 federal estate tax changes. She will also advise seniors how to get the long‐term care they need through Medicaid while still protecting their assets.

All the seminars will be from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in the Flushing House dining room; there will be refreshments available and free handouts from the speakers. The seminars are open to the public – admission is free.  If you wish to attend, RSVP to 347-532‐3025 or torsalant@uam.org.

Flushing House is located at 38-20 Bowne Street, Flushing
