Grant to Fund New Legal Aid Resources

The Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands has been awarded a grant from the West End Home Foundation to revise, translate and print two existing community education brochures -- one on nursing home or home and community-based care and a second on advance care planning (living wills) and health care agents (durable power of attorney for health care) -- and to produce and translate a new brochure on health care surrogates and conservatorships. Two Legal Aid Society attorneys will also make presentations and distribute the brochures in Davidson, Montgomery, Rutherford and Sumner counties.
