(Littleton)

The Administration on Aging has announced the release of more than $1 million to the senior advocacy group Justice in Aging to create a new National Center on Law and Elder Rights, which will support efforts to protect the rights, financial security and independence of older adults.

The center will provide tools and resources including case consultation, legal training and technical assistance to address a range of legal and systems development issues. The resources developed by the center will be made available to aging and disability, legal and elder rights networks such as long term care ombudsmen, senior legal helplines and area agencies on aging.

“By supporting the dedicated professionals in the legal and aging services networks, the National Center on Law and Elder Rights helps make legal assistance available to seniors who need it,” said Acting Assistant Secretary for Aging Edwin Walker.
