Attorney speaks to Alzheimer’s Association

Nancy Oliver Hayden, Tribune Community editor

Attorney Henry Cavallera will be the guest speaker at the Feb. 14 meeting of the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern Nevada support group. The meeting, which takes place from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd., is in conjunction with Elder Options.

The gathering will provide an opportunity for both California and Nevada residents to learn more about estate planning issues, gain greater knowledge of their legal options and have their questions answered by an elder law expert.

Cavallera practices primarily in the area of estate planning and long-term care planning. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado Law School and the University of Nevada. For 10 years he was the directing attorney of the Washoe County Senior Citizens Law Center. He has been a frequent lecturer to the Nevada Bar on Elder law issues. He also founded the Senior Citizens Law School, a community education program for seniors.

In addition, Cavallera is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. In November 1995 he was a speaker at the NAELA’s National Institute, where he presented a paper on “How to Deal with Supplemental Security Income/Medicaid Trust Conflicts.” The entire community is invited to attend the lecture and benefit from Cavallera’s wealth of knowledge and experience.

The Alzheimer’s Association of Northern Nevada support group meetings take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon the second Thursday of each month at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center. The support group is free of charge and open to all family members, caregivers and friends of Alzheimer’s patients. For more information or to be added to the mailing list for monthly newsletters call Tina Callahan, care manager of Elder Options, at (530) 541-1812.
