Legal Program

The Legal Program provides vouchers to eligible seniors age 60 and over, which are valid for the preparation of either a durable Power of Attorney or a simple Last Will & Testament. The AAA contracts with an attorney in each county of our region, who will accept the vouchers.  To download the simple, one-page application, click the link below (Application for the Legal Program Voucher).  In addition, the Legal Program makes available Advance Directives (Living Will) and Health Care Power of Attorney (Health Care Surrogate) forms at no charge.  Use the links below to download the Advance Directives and/or Health Care Power of Attorney forms.  For more information regarding the Legal Program, please contact the Aging Programs Assistant, Pat Baker, at 828-586-1962, ext. 209 or by email to pbaker@regiona.org.
