No matter what your political stripe, we are now facing many threats to cut programs and resources offered to help older people age more easily—so it’s more important than ever to help quiet the angst and fill in the gaps by stepping up and advocating for elders. In this upcoming forum we will discuss effective advocacy for the elder, what is needed most in the future and the personal advocacy experience Barbara Kate Repa has gained in her lifelong work in this field.
Barbara Kate, a lawyer and journalist, has devoted her career to translating legal issues for consumers. She’s the author of several legal self-help books published by Nolo, as well as WillMaker—best-selling software that enables consumers to write their own wills, healthcare directives, powers of attorney and final arrangements. She currently writes and edits for a number of websites and publications on the legal and practical aspects of aging, caregiving, estate planning and end of life and currently volunteers with a number of groups focused on aging.
