Township-based law practice to host Elder Care Symposium

Event to take place on Thursday. This year’s keynote address will be presented by Dr. Jason Karlawish, an author, professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and co-director of the Penn Memory Center.

On Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021, the Rothkoff Law Group will host its 4th Annual Elder Care Symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The topic for this year’s virtual event is Lessons Learned from COVID-19.

Activities will include a Keynote Address, Breakout Sessions, and a Panel Discussion. Professionals who work with the elderly and family members of senior-aged, loved ones will have valuable networking opportunities and unprecedented access to critical information regarding elder care issues.

According to Managing Attorney and symposium host Jerold E. Rothkoff, Esq., “We are excited about the array of leading experts in the field of elder care who will share their insights and lessons learned resulting from the pandemic. They will take a hard look at the current healthcare system for seniors and address how to change it for the better. You will not find this level of discourse anywhere else. The guest speakers we have assembled are true experts in their fields.”

In addition to the live presentations, symposium attendees can visit the interactive exhibit hall and engage with 60 vendors who work with seniors through real-time text, audio, or video chats in either a group or private one-on-one setting.

Proceeds from this symposium will be donated to the HFC organization. Founded in 2012 by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen, the national nonprofit’s mission is to care for families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, inspire the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates, and be leaders in brain health research and education.

This year’s keynote address will be presented by Dr. Jason Karlawish, an author, professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and co-director of the Penn Memory Center. He will discuss the topic of his recent book The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How It Became a Crisis and What We Have to Do. The first 100 attendees will also receive a copy of the book.

“The past 19 months have been an awful natural case study about the effects of Alzheimer’s on

patients and families, and the need for residential long-term care support,” Karlawish said. “However, if we look at the reasons behind the crisis, there are things we can do moving forward, both in the regulatory realm and the scientific realm. We are making progress understanding the disease, which will lead to therapies that improve the lives of patients and their families. But it is a complicated disease and likely not something a single drug will solve.”
