Seniors and Caregivers: We Need Your Feedback

The South Carolina Access to Justice Commission and the South Carolina Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Aging are partners in a project to identify and address legal needs of South Carolina Seniors living in poverty.  South Carolina is one of eleven states in 2009 that received a grant for Administration on Aging’s Model Approaches to Statewide Legal Assistance Systems.

And we need YOU! Well, your information please. In order for us to complete PHASE ONE – the Legal Needs Assessment – we need to have information from Seniors and Caregivers.

It’s easy to do – either click here for the online survey or Final ATJC Senior Survey Document for the Senior survey (pdf) or Final ATJC Caregiver Survey Document for the Caregiver survey (pdf).

Thanks!
