Pro Bono Health Care Directives and Powers of Attorney for Senior Citizens
Upcoming Serving our Seniors Events:
May 20, 2017, Draper Senior Center, 9am to noon
America’s quickly-growing senior population faces numerous challenges. Senior citizens are one of our most vulnerable and underrepresented populations, with many seniors living near or below the poverty line. Many seniors face critical economic and healthcare decisions without the ability to hire legal counsel. Serving Our Seniors helps fulfill this need by educating seniors about their estate planning options and providing legal assistance through volunteer actions by Utah attorneys.
