A WBF Publication
Today is National Senior Citizens Day—a day to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements. At the WBF, we support senior citizens everyday through our Elder Law Project.
If you’ve ever helped an aging loved one navigate healthcare decisions, manage their finances, or make end-of-life plans, you know that making these decisions can be complicated, and at times, heart wrenching. For low-income seniors without extensive support networks, these decisions become even more difficult. At the WBF, we help low-income seniors maintain personal autonomy and peace of mind as they age by matching them with a volunteer attorney who works with them to prepare legal documents (wills, power of attorney, healthcare proxies, living wills, etc.) to ensure their wishes are clearly articulated and legally binding.
