Legal Assistance for ages 60 and above available at NARCOG

Many of the programs provided through the Area Agency on Aging ( AAA ) at NARCOG are targeted at individuals 60 and above . The legal assistance program serves those in this age range and seeks to reach those in rural areas and in the greatest social and economic need .
No-cost representation is provided by a lawyer licensed by the Alabama State Bar and his supervised assistant . In-person services were provided at the Cullman Commission on Aging office prior to COVID-19 . The agency continues to provide services during the pandemic , just in a different way according to the AAA director Tennille Harkins . “ Our staff will assess the need , discuss the service details and obtain the required information all by telephone . They then work to complete draft documents for review by the client ,” she said . Final
documents are then prepared and provided for execution .
A few of the most common requests are for advance directives , wills , and power of attorney documents . Assistance with other non-criminal legal matters such as guardianship , long-term care access , and elder exploitation and fraud is also available .
“ We want residents of Cullman to know that these services are available at no cost through NARCOG . All they need to do is make one call ,” said Harkins .
