ABLE attorney to speak on long term care
The next “Legally Speaking” presentation, Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program Overview, will be Wednesday, May 10, with identical presentations at noon and 6:00 p.m. in the Sky Bank Meeting Room of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, 325 Michigan St., downtown Toledo.
Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE) attorney Sandy Hamilton will address common concerns about entering or living in a long-term care facility. She will explain how advocates are working to protect the rights of residents in facilities such as nursing homes, adult care facilities, and consumers receiving in-home care services. Her presentation will include tips for facility selection, Medicaid and Medicare and elder abuse prevention.
Presented by ABLE, Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Inc. (LAWO) and the Toledo/Lucas County Public Library, the presentation is part of an 11-week speaker series. Given by attorneys from ABLE and LAWO, “Legally Speaking” presentations take place each Wednesday through May 24. The talks are free and open to the public. Each week’s presentation features a new legal issue that affects people in the Toledo area.
Future presentations include:
