May is National Elder Law Month
In 1963, President Kennedy declared May to be Senior Citizens Month to honor those who are 65 and older. Since then every President has proclaimed May to be a month to show support for older Americans. President Jimmy Carter changed the name in 1980 to Older Americans Month and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys supports this annual proclamation by declaring the month of May to be National Elder Law Month.
National Elder Law Month of May is sponsored by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NAELA was formed in 1987 in response to the growing legal needs of older adults, people with special needs, and their families.
In honor of National Elder Law Month, The Elder Law Center of Kirson & Fuller will provide free information to elders and their families at the “How to Pay for Long-Term Care” seminar to be conducted on May 23rd at 6:00pm at the Marks Street Senior Center, 99E. Marks Street, Orlando, Florida 32803
The Elder Law Center’s free seminar is geared to educate the public about legal issues elders and their families face on a daily basis and especially in a crisis. Florida Bar Board Certified Attorney, Heather C. Kirson, from The Elder Law Center of Kirson & Fuller will discuss Estate Planning, Medicare, Medicaid along with VA benefits that can help pay for long term care.
There are many different legal issues facing America’s elders and we are here to help.
