The Dare County Department of Health & Human Services’ Division of Social Services has received funding from the Older Americans Act Title III to help eligible residents 60 years and older with essential legal guidance and services.
The funding will provide qualifying seniors with assistance to attain legal services to secure important documents such as living wills, powers of attorney and HIPAA releases, as well as valuable legal advice.
“Older adults are encouraged to seek legal advice now to ensure that their wishes are known in the event of death or they become incapacitated,” said Dare County Adult Services Supervisor Beth Bradley. “The Title III funding,” she adds, “may provide that needed service to qualifying seniors.”
For more information about services provided under Title III, to inquire if services are appropriate for your legal needs or to have your name placed on the waitlist, please contact Evelyn Berry at 252.475.5500.
