Fall Prevention…How? April 28, 2017

April 5th, 2017 by Doris Bersing
Living Well Proudly Presents Dr. John Fullerton, MD and Hampton Health, Ltd
Falls don’t “just happen,” and people don’t fall because they get older. Often, more than one underlying cause or risk factor is involved in a fall. As the number of risk factors rises, so does the risk of falling. Many falls are linked to a person’s physical condition or a medical problem, such as a chronic disease. Let Dr. Fullerton explain how a fall could be a sign of a new medical problem that needs attention, such as an infection or a cardiovascular disorder. It could also suggest that a treatment or interventions for a chronic ailment, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, needs to be changed.

Speakers: John H. Fullerton, MD and Minoo Parsa, BS

Dr. Fullerton is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Hospice, Palliative Medicine, and Addiction Medicine, as well as board certified Medical Review Officer, Medical Director, Forensic Physician, and Home Care Physician.

Wills, Trusts and Aging Parents: Nov 10, 2016

October 27th, 2016 by Doris Bersing

Five experts join in a panel discussion on wills, trusts and aging parents Thursday, Nov. 10, at the Northgate Mall Community Room, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Women’s Collective of Marin, a professional association hosting panel discussions by women for women on topics that women care about. Speakers for this event include estate planning attorney Hilary Spaulding Namnath; gerontology expert Dr. Doris Bersing; home health advocate Terri Abelar; and banking expert Karen Hawkey. Certified financial planner Kathleen Nemetz will moderate.

The event begins with hors d’oeuvres, and mix and mingle networking. The panel discussion follows at 6 pm. There is no charge to attend.

Panelists will address the issues baby boomers commonly face when managing their older parents. Often these issues center on whether mom or dad has created a will or trust, or arranged the necessary finances for a long retirement. Other issues are provoked by declining health, capacity or mobility.
