Empowering Your Decision-Making

Advance care planning is a vital process that empowers you to make informed decisions about your health care and end-of-life choices. It involves understanding the options available to you, considering your values and desires, and communicating your wishes to your family and healthcare providers. A crucial part of this planning involves legal considerations, such as drafting wills, living wills, and powers of attorney.

Legal Support Tailored to Your Needs

The Legal Resources for the Elderly Program, offered free of charge to New Mexico’s seniors, is a cornerstone for those seeking guidance and assistance with these legal aspects. This program provides:

  • Free Legal Advice: Access to knowledgeable attorneys who can offer guidance on creating or updating your will, establishing a power of attorney, and making informed decisions about your advance healthcare directive.
  • Workshops and Seminars: Educational opportunities designed to inform and empower you about your legal rights and the steps involved in advance care planning.
  • Resourceful Guidance: Assistance in navigating the legal system, understanding your options, and implementing your advance care planning decisions effectively.

Making Informed Choices

We encourage you to take advantage of the LREP to ensure your wishes are honored and your rights are protected. Whether you’re beginning the process of advance care planning or looking to update your existing plans, the LREP offers a compassionate and comprehensive support system to guide you through every step.
