“Elder Law Day” is going virtual. “Elder Law Day” is a collaboration between Center for Elder Law and Justice and Erie Senior Services. It is designed to provide information on legal issues affecting older adults to assist them (and their caregivers) in making informed choices about their health, financial well-being, and long-term health care needs. This year the information sessions have been converted to a virtual summer series beginning July 15th.
Presentations will take on Wednesdays at 10:00am. Topics will include:
Basic Estate Planning & Advanced Directives
Nursing Home Rights
COVID Medicaid Changes
Asset Protection Planning
On Wednesday, July 15th, the series will kick-off with “Medicaid Basics and Upcoming Changes” by Kelly Barrett Sarama, Esq. Anyone interested in participating can register at www.erie.gov/ELD. The presentation will also be available at The Dale Association, 33 Ontario Street, Lockport via a live stream. To participate at The Dale Association, please call 433-1886 to register.
