Spanish-Language Health and Financial Decisions Information Package
Available FREE to RPTE Members

The ABA Commission on Law and Aging is offering a free Spanish-language information package to all RPTE members. The package includes the Commission’s most popular consumer brochure, "Health and Financial Decisions: Legal Tools for Preserving Your Personal Autonomy," and a 19-minute Spanish-subtitled video, "In Your Hands: The Tools for Preserving Personal Autonomy."  The video comes with a program guide that provides sample scripts and discussion points to help present the program and is available in DVD and VHS format.

The information package encourages seniors to use legal planning tools to ensure that their personal, health care and financial wishes are honored in the event they become sick, disabled or incapacitated.  It is a valuable tool for attorneys and advocates who work with Spanish-speaking seniors, caregivers or family members!
