AFA Care Connection Webinar Series
September 22nd: AFA’s Special Edition Care Connection Webinar Take Action: You Have the Power to Prevent a Fall
Did you know that 1 in 4 adults aged 65+ falls every year? Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries
for older Americans. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are at an increased risk for falls and injuries. Falls are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. The good news is that falling is not a normal part of aging.
Kathleen A. Cameron has over 25 years of experience in the health care field as a pharmacist, researcher and program director focusing on falls prevention, geriatric pharmacotherapy, mental health, long-term services and supports, and caregiving. Ms. Cameron is currently Senior Director at the National Council on Aging (NCOA) where she oversees the Administration on Aging-funded National Falls Prevention Resource Center and National Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) Resource Center.

October 12th: Understanding the Benefits of Reverse Mortgages
This webinar will focus on reverse mortgages. A reverse mortgage is a powerful financial tool that often affords individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias the care they need while staying right at home. But it is, by and large, misunderstood and maligned, to the detriment of the person with this disease and their families who benefit the most from it. Guest speaker Alice Tang will discuss the facts to debunk the myths.
Alice Tseng has a B.S. in Communications Arts from Cornell University. She spent 15 years in corporate advertising, where she honed her client services skills, and affords that same dedication to service, and attention to detail to individual clients in Home Equity Conversion (HECM) / Reverse Mortgage loans.
