Critical Decisions: Health Care Planning for Seniors

Pro Bono Clearinghouse

A senior dispenses a pill from a bottle into their hand

Critical Decisions is an opportunity for aging adults to learn how to ensure that their personal health care preferences are respected in the event they are not able to communicate for themselves.

Participants at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House have the opportunity to get answers to important health care planning and estate questions, information on related legal documents, and one-on-one legal counseling to help them choose and draft the documents that are right for them and their families. This partnership project has expanded from the initial one-day clinic in May 2014 to offering quarterly clinics for seniors and has helped over 100 senior citizens.
