Description

Join NPT and FiftyForward on Wednesday, March 27, for a free preview screening of NPT’s Aging Matters: Legal Help. The event takes place 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and includes a panel discussion with Sonya Bellafant, director of the Tennessee Senior Law Alliance/Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands; Stephanie Edwards, attorney with Howard, Mobley, Hayes and Gontarek; and Rhonda Yaeger, advocate from the Jean Crowe Advocacy Center. Ashley Hunter, director of the FiftyForward Victory Over Crime program, will serve as moderator.

Lunch will be provided.

Just over half of all seniors have had at least one civil legal problem in the last year and 87 percent of older adults seeking legal assistance had difficulty finding or affording it. Yet the benefits or resources that are available for older adults are underutilized. Aging Matters: Legal Help will shed light on those resources and identify places to turn when legal assistance is needed.



The funding for this project was provided through a grant awarded by the Davidson County Chancery Court, Part III from the SeniorTrust/ElderTrust settlement (Case No. 11-1548-III) and through a contract administered by the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability.
