Recognizing Residents' Rights

October is Residents’ Rights Month. An annual event where we to recognize the rights, respect, and dignity that all long-term care residents are entitled to. But we don’t stop there. This is also a time to honor those in our communities receiving services in their homes or wherever they may be.

We hope you will join us for a special Lunch & Learn this month as we come together to encourage facilities and those serving older adults and adults with disabilities to celebrate and spread awareness of the dignity and respect that all in this vulnerable population deserve.

Collaborating with Elder Abuse Attorneys in the Private Sector

Many older adults and adults with disabilities face problems and abuse that they may not know how to solve. In these circumstances, accessible legal assistance and resources are needed. But what happens when they don’t know where to turn to find help? In the nonprofit world, organizations typically work with nonprofit attorneys and legal aid, but there are a number of reputable for-profit attorneys who specialize in elder abuse.

In this Lunch & Learn session, we will be hearing from elder abuse attorney Mark Redmond, Esq. to explore how we can effectively work with attorneys in the private sector to combat elder abuse.

Amicus, What?

Amicus briefs can be a powerful tool to express support or opposition to pending legal cases. Yet, all too often CBOs, whose clients are most affected by the rulings, are left out of the process. Join us to learn from a panel of legal experts and fellow elder advocates who have leveraged amicus briefs to create systemic change and more equitable outcomes for their communities. Panelists include Leza Coleman, Executive Director for the California Long-Term Care Ombudsman Association, Jim Treggiari, Executive Director at Legal Assistance for Seniors, and Sil Vossler, Founder and Principal of Vossler Law Firm. We can't wait to Lunch & Learn with you!
