With support from the California Department of Aging, Justice in Aging is providing targeted resources and trainings, technical assistance, opportunities to connect, and capacity building support to California legal services providers to help them meet the needs of the state’s low-income older adults.
Below you’ll find a curated list of California-specific trainings on a variety of topics, including health care, public benefits, housing, long-term care, protective services, abuse and neglect, discrimination and defense of conservatorship. Please check the date for the materials, as policies may have changed following publication. Justice in Aging is also available for one-on-one case consultations and technical assistance.
These resources are specific to California – for national resources, please visit the National Center on Law & Elder Rights. Please reach out to us if you’d like more information or to request a consultation.
