In October, low income seniors and persons living with disabilities will have an opportunity to take advantage of a free service to help in drafting a will and other important life planning documents.
“Many of our senior citizens may have already taken care of this important documentation,” says Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D) 24. “However, there may be others who can not afford the legal representation to get these documents prepared.”
Flood, the Legal Aid Society and Wesley Manor will hold a free clinic to assist low income seniors and those with a disability on October 12th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Wesley Manor located at 5012 East Manslick Road. The clinic is open only to residents of District 24.
“I applaud the Legal Aid Society for taking the time and effort to help those in need with what can be an intimidating process,” says Flood. “This will go a long way in providing peace of mind for many of our senior citizens. I am also excited to partner with Wesley Manor for this event.”
The free clinic will offer assistance in drawing up a Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney, Health Care Surrogate and Living Will.
There are requirements to participate in the free clinic. Prospective clients must meet federal poverty guidelines. For a family of two, a client’s monthly income must be $1,400 of lower.
Residents are asked to make a reservation for the clinic. The deadline to sign up is September 28th. For more information, call the Legal Aid Society at 502-614-3166.
