I’m happy to report that the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys has designated May as National Elder Law Month. The NAELA is a membership organization of attorneys serving older Americans and people with special needs. One of the group’s main goals is to encourage attorneys to educate their local communities on legal options and available resources. National Elder Law Month was established as a way to encourage elder law attorneys to focus their efforts during the month of May on educating older Americans and their families on living trusts, powers of attorney, physical and financial elder abuse, Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care insurance, and other important issues. This annual event is an opportunity for NAELA member attorneys to meet face-to-face with their neighbors in the community to answer questions on timely issues for older Americans and their families. As part of my contribution, I will be hosting a free seminar on Disaster Preparedness for Seniors, Families and Communities. Please click here for more information.
