Felicia Pasculli was featured in a member spotlight article in the Elder and Special Needs Law Journal, a publication of the Elder Law and Special Needs Section of the New York State Bar Association. Felicia was interviewed by Katy Carpenter and here is a portion of that interview with the full article attached below.
Q – Where are you from?
A – I like to think Heaven, (or at least that’s what I tell my kids)! I am from Astoria, Queens – it’s trendy now, not so much back then. The entire maternal side of my family lived there also, so we had a community within a community.
Q – What brought you to Long Island?
A – We chose Long Island because we like to be near the water and, at the time, a house there was more affordable.
Q – Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be in the most significant in your career.
A – I am one of the founders of the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation, established in 1988. At the time, there was no central source of information regarding services for those suffering from dementia. We created a resource manual listing social workers, doctors, attorneys, etc. that specialized in treating Alzheimer’s or assisting their families. We also developed innovative programs.
