LCA’S NINTH SOUTH FLORIDA CONFERENCE FOR LATINO ELDERS AND THEIR FAMILIES

Focusing on elder issues that impact the Latino community, the Latino Center on Aging and several other prestigious organizations are conducting its ninth conference on Alzheimer’s Disease for South Florida area residents in Spanish. The purpose is to inform, educate and train all who are involved in the care of persons with Alzheimer’s disease. The conference provides a unique forum for the elderly and caregivers to discuss important issues on a one-on-one basis, offering a great opportunity to network with knowledgeable experts and those in need. We expect a well-attended event by seniors and caregivers.

Latino Center on Aging (LCA) was formed in 1991 to improve the living conditions of Hispanic elderly through education and advocacy. In May of 2014, the Latino Center on Aging (LCA) formed the South Florida Hispanic Coalition for Aging to facilitate networking with stakeholders that can further the provisioning of much needed services to the growing numbers of Hispanic elderly in the country and this region. Idiomatic
and cultural differences frequently serve as a barrier for older Latinos in accessing existing senior services. Presently, this Coalition has forty two organizations, which offer their services to over one million older adults in South Florida, including the fastest and largest segment of this community, Hispanic elderly.

Our upcoming event will be on:


Wednesday, May 11, 2022 – 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM
