The Philadelphia Prevention Partnership will celebrate its 18th conference for Latinos 55 and older. The Latino Golden Age Conference will be held Saturday, June 2nd, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at Antonia Pantoja Charter School, at 4101 N. American Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19140. This year’s conference theme is Mi Vida a Través de los Cambios (My Life Through Changes) and explores the emotional, physical, financial and spiritual changes older adults go through.
The free event will feature six workshops, breakfast, lunch, entertainment and community resources. SeniorLAW Center’s Hispanic Legal Services Coordinator, Margarita Martinez, will conduct a conference workshop on Prevention of Abuse and Financial Exploitation. Margarita is responsible for the provision of direct legal services to Spanish-speaking clients, who often face crises of housing, family violence, abuse and financial exploitation.
Every year the Latino Golden Age Conference attracts more than 250 Latino older adults. The purpose of the conference is to provide Latino older adults with the opportunity to receive valuable information, address social isolation, food insecurity and other health and well-being issues, while at the same time celebrating who they are as Latino older adults in Philadelphia. The conference also serves as an opportunity for caregivers to stay up-to-date on resources and information available to them to better care for the older adult.
The event is sponsored by the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, Affordable Home Care, ASPIRA, Gateway Health and other community partners.
