Seniors : Seniors Legal Issues

What do I do if I have legal or long-term care problems?

Call Pro Seniors if you have questions or concerns about Medicare, Medicaid, powers of attorney, pensions, consumer problems, care in a nursing home or nursing home selection.

Pro Seniors is available to serve you whether you need the Legal Hotline, the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program or Care Options. Pro Seniors has been helping older persons with Legal and Long-Term Care Problems for over 25 years.

What will happen when I call the Pro Seniors Legal Hotline?

By calling our Legal Hotline, you can receive assistance with a variety of legal problems. If you have a legal problem that cannot be resolved over the phone, the Legal Hotline will try to refer you to an appropriate source for more in-depth assistance.

Our staff attorneys handle problems that most private attorneys do not, such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, other government benefits and protective services. Pro Seniors may also refer you to a private attorney on our Hotline Referral Attorney Panel (HRAP).

Many of these attorneys have agreed to accept cases at a reduced fee for clients with limited income.

Free help with your legal or long-term care problems is available.

I'm looking for long-term care, where can I get help?
If you have a question or complaint about a nursing home, Pro Seniors can help.

Our long-term care ombudsman staff:

  • Help you understand your options so you can make an informed choice about a nursing home or assisted living facility – just ask for Care Options.
  • Explain your rights and help you advocate for yourself or a loved one using long-term care.
  • Investigate and work to resolve complaints about nursing homes, assisted living, adult care homes and home care.
