Camden County Holds Senior Citizen Legal Workshops

By Sonny DiSabato, Senior Citizen Coordinator

Hello fellow seniors.

The Camden County Board of Freeholders, the Department of Health and Human Services – Division of Senior and Disabled Services, and the Surrogate’s Office announce free legal workshops for senior and disabled residents of Camden County. Those attending these workshops receive, at no cost, a last will and testament, an advance directive for health care (living will) and power of attorney (POA).

Participants are required to be Camden County residents aged 60 and over. Disabled citizens must be aged 18 and over and residents of Camden County. Workshops are limited to 35 participants per session and pre-registration is required.

Due to a high demand, individuals need to call for an appointment as soon as possible. These workshops fill up very quickly. Don’t delay!

These workshops are held every Monday of the month, unless it falls on an official holiday; then it moves to that Tuesday. Each workshop is held at the Camden County Store, 2120 Voorhees Town Center, Voorhees, N.J. The senior legal workshops for this month occur on July 10, 17 and 24 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. There is also a workshop on Monday, July 31 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.; clinics held at night do not offer a power of attorney (POA), only a will and living will.

To register for these legal workshops, please call (856) 566-2920. For more information about this program and about the other services provided by the Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services and the Surrogate’s Office, please call the Division of Senior and Disabled Services at (877) 222-3737 or the Surrogate’s Office at (856) 225-7282.

I hope you’re enjoying your summer with family and friends. Stay cool! Also, please remember to say a prayer for our brave men and women serving in the Armed Forces.
