In Oklahoma today, there are more than 708,000 people who are 60 or older. That means seniors comprise more than 19% of the entire population of Oklahoma.  Of the senior population in Oklahoma, 10 % are impoverished.

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias among the elderly increase the need for long-term care, either at home to supplement informal caregiving, or in a long-term care facility.  Due to age, medical issues, and time constraints, caregivers and seniors have decreased mobility, making it difficult to access necessary legal services and resources.  Additionally, seniors and caregivers cannot understand, or may lack knowledge of, many legal issues, such as surrogate decision-making, end-of-life planning, and navigating the complexities of applying for Medicaid.

Annually, our attorneys, with help from law student interns, have handled over 700 calls and emails from seniors and caregivers seeking legal advice.

In addition to providing one-on-one legal services, the Senior Law Resource Center partnered with the Oklahoma Association for Healthcare Ethics to develop a new video on how to complete Oklahoma’s Advance Directive for Health Care form. These dvds, along with thousands of copies of our four printed publications, have been distributed across the state through hospitals,
long-term care facilities, hospices, and caregiver support groups.

Client Letter

You will be happy to know that my father is now in a facility where he can be cared for, I checked him in yesterday and I did not have any problems. I have made his financial arrangements . . . I wanted to thank you so much for your help and I wanted to let you know that it is very comforting to me that Dad is safe and is receiving the medical attention that he needs.

In addition to giving free information to hundreds of elders and caregivers, we will provide  free legal services to homebound seniors and seniors confined to facilities who would not otherwise be able to access legal assistance.
