The Erie County Department of Senior Services and the Center for Elder Law and Justice have announced that Elder Law Day 2019 will be held on Monday, June 6 from 8:00 AM – 1:30 PM at the Millennium Hotel, 2040 Walden Ave, Buffalo (next to the Galleria Mall). Now in its nineteenth year, Elder Law Day provides information to assist older adults in making informed choices about their health, financial well-being, and long term health care needs.  Seniors, caregivers, and family members can choose to attend up to three attorney-led seminars on topics such as guardianship, elder justice, planning for adult children with disabilities, patient rights, power of attorney and the role of a health care proxy.   

 

Guests at Elder Law Day also have an opportunity to pre-register for a free, 15-minute consultation with an attorney.  In addition, an array of community agencies will be on hand to share their information and expertise on available services and will also have baskets to raffle off for guests.  The sales-free event is open to the public. Registered guests receive a canvas bag with event information, raffle tickets, and a light lunch.

 

Guests can register online at erie.gov/ELD or by calling 858-6864 (Registration closes June 2nd). 

 

Additional sponsors of Elder Law Day 2019 include AARP-NY; the Bar Association of Erie County; Network in Aging; the New York State Bar Association, Elder Law Section; and SUNY Buffalo Law School.

 

Event organizers invite requests for accommodation due to disability; however, accommodation cannot be guaranteed without advanced notice.
