North Shore Towers residents and other guests excitedly ventured around Towers on the Green, visiting each and every vendor offering advice on how to improve their quality of life.

The Queens Courier’s annual Health & Financial Fitness Expo, held Friday, November 30, featured dozens of different business representatives from a variety of industries.

After attendees were able to visit with vendors and talk one-on-one, the program began with a number of speakers covering topics from consumer and bank fraud, to healthy aging, to the importance of a properly fitted shoe.

Jennifer Seery of CHS Home Support Services, a subsidiary of Catholic Home Care, attended the expo and brought along several prototypes of their merchandise, such as a breathing mask. The service focuses on providing the elderly with the care that they may need in order to stay in their home for as long as possible.

“It’s anything you would need outside of a hospital or a nursing home facility,” said Seery of their products. “We have all medical equipment, so if you should need anything to assist you, we can give it to you.”

“[We’re here] to get our name out in the community and let people know that it’s possible to stay home for as long as possible, if that’s what they choose,” Seery said of the event and its networking value.

Also at the expo was New York Community Bank/Queens County Savings Bank; Sinai Chapels; Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation; AgeWell New York; Turnpike Comfort Footwear; Margaret Tietz Center Light Health System; Premier Care; Steadfast Caregivers; Brandywine Senior Living; Robert Lubow; Reverie Spa; Dr. Gail Lowenstein, M.D., Physician Homecare; Genworth Insurance; OKG Jewelry; Comfort Keepers; Life Caller; Home Instead; Bayside Chiropractic, Dr. Vilan; The Lev Group at Morgan Stanley; Carelink, Inc.; REL Business Gazette; Quality Health Care; Best Senior Care; Why Weight?; Dr. Zdenko Beg, P.T.; New York Life Insurance and Fatoullah & Associates.

Ron Fatoullah of Fatoullah & Associates spoke during the event to a crowd of Towers residents and outside guests regarding planning for and securing long-term care.

“Especially in an uncertain time, planning is the most important thing,” said Fatoullah. “People should get their affairs in order now.”

The attorney spoke about the federal gift and estate tax levels that will decrease by January 1, and Fatoullah wants people to be aware of that.

“They need to have essential documents in place,” he said. “Such as last will and testament, living trust and health care proxy. Planning in advance is the key to protecting assets.”

Those who also spoke at the event included Christine A. Feingold of Sinai Chapels; Tara Buoncore-Rut, Executive Director of AgeWell New York; James Christopher, Assistant Vice President of New York Community Bank Corp; Mark Margulies, owner of Comfort Keepers; Dr. Rob Sharma of Premier Care; Susan Cohen of Brandywine Senior Living; Robert Hauer, Manager of Turnpike Comfort Footwear; George Chiungos of Genworth Financial; and Gail Lowenstein, M.D.

Lowenstein, who came to the expo for the first time this year, enjoyed being able to speak to Towers residents about her work.

“The concept of my care is based on the care I give my parents,” she said, regarding her work in geriatrics. “North Shore Towers would be a wonderful locale for us to see patients.”

George Chiungos of Genworth Financial echoed this sentiment.

“It’s always nice to come to these events and see people that you wouldn’t normally interact with,” he said. “We’re here, taking a proactive approach [for our] long term care protection.”
