February is National Senior Independence Month! In the aging community, losing your independence is a common fear. The loss of independence can result in reduced self-worth and respect, which makes it crucial to help aging individuals maintain as much control over their lives as possible. This month celebrates the independence our senior community deserves and the necessary resources that help make this happen. 

In honor of National Senior Independence Month, Managing Partner Brian Andrew Tully, Esq. is hosting a webinar as a part of Tully Law Group's monthly Senior Advocacy Forum, this one titled “The Top Ways to Maintain Senior Independence.” Brian will be joined by three panelists: Stuart B. Almer from Gurwin Healthcare Sytems, Don Belcher from 101 Mobility, and Jim Day, CDI from Fitzgeralds Driving School. The topics will focus on helping seniors live more independently based on their lifestyle, abilities, and personal preferences.

MELVILLE, NEW YORK, JANUARY 11th, 2023: Tully Law Group, P.C. is proud to announce the addition of three new partners to the firm. This news represents Tully Law Group’s expansion within the Long Island marketplace to provide legal services focusing on Elder Care & Estate Planning. 

The new partners are a combination of one attorney promotion within the firm, Amy N. Latuga, and two new attorneys who commenced their tenure this month, Joanne M. Hawthorne and Robert M. D’Angelillo.  

Amy N. Latuga – Amy has been promoted to Partner and has been a valued attorney at Tully Law Group since 2013. She has been serving clients of the firm as Senior Associate and Director of Planning within the firm.  She represents clients in the areas of estate planning, Medicaid eligibility, asset protection and special needs planning. Her tenure with the firm has proven to be successful and has earned her great respect from the firm’s clients and colleagues.    

Joanne M. Hawthorne - Joanne has joined Tully Law Group as a Partner in our Riverhead office. For over 20 years Joanne has been practicing law focusing on Estate Planning, Probate and Guardianship. She has been selected by the prestigious New York Metro Super Lawyers and named to their Estate Planning and Probate lists since 2020.

Robert M. D’Angelillo - Robert joined the firm as a Partner in our Melville office. Robert has been practicing Trusts & Estates and Elder Law for 30 years. Throughout his career, Robert has conducted informational estate planning and elder care seminars for community groups, assisted living facilities, veteran clinics and special needs organizations, providing guidance to help families protect the most assets and obtain the best care possible.

The start of a new year is the perfect time to focus on improving certain aspects of our lives for the better. With the last few years being a struggle for so many, it’s even more important than ever to create uplifting and helpful goals for 2023.

New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be complicated. In fact, the more attainable, the better! Focusing on your health and making daily tasks more manageable is an excellent place to start. Here are some of the best 2023 resolutions that seniors should consider and can start immediately. 

New Year’s Resolutions 2023 


Focus on organizing and decluttering your living space. An important resolution is increasing safety in your home by reducing hazards that may cause slips and falls. Installing handrails and additional lighting can help for more clear paths of movement and reduce the chance of injury.


It is essential to have your finances organized. Knowing which financial institutions have your accounts, the balances, types of accounts, titles and who the primary and contingent beneficiaries will add to your financial security and peace of mind.  Adequately managing and allocating your finances can reduce unnecessary stress for seniors. 

Asset Protection 

Inquire with loved ones and a trusted attorney on how to protect your assets. Asset protection can possibly include a modified Power of Attorney and Trusts.  Also, be aware financial abuse by others and of potential scams when surfing the internet, checking emails, and receiving phone calls. 


Check in with your healthcare provider and keep up to date on appointments, required doctor’s visits and tests. It is also very helpful to create an inventory of all current prescriptions and dosages that you may be taking. This can ensure your safety as your health is monitored and medications are changed.


Take time to ensure you replenish your mind and body with seven to nine hours of sleep. Increase your activity by taking a walk and nourish your health by drinking water and eating foods rich in nutrients to help boost your immune system.


Increase socialization among others in your age group. Join new clubs and activities in your local community to make new friends. As you welcome in the New Year, try a new hobby to engage your mind!


Focus on strengthening bonds with family members and loved ones. Spend time with the ones who mean the most to you and that you cherish as your support system. 

Keep Your Resolutions Simple

Don’t overcomplicate your New Year’s resolutions. As long as your goals focus on positive aspects in your life, you’re already on the right track. Keep your resolutions simple and good luck in 2023!
