Where do you turn when an older adult needs help with a wide range of legal issues? There are several legal services that focus on assisting the more vulnerable elderly population. Priorities include assuring that seniors obtain the financial and medical assistance essential to their well being and stopping financial, physical or psychological abuse of elders. Other services provide extensive community education programs through which elders and workers serving the elderly are educated about elders’ rights and protections under the law.
Elders in Action in partnership with the Multnomah Bar Foundation will explore some of these services in the next topic of our Elder Safety Net Series called:
