United Hospice of Rockland is pleased to announce a new service provided by the Rockland County Bar Association that will help patients and their families. The Bar Association has developed a panel of attorneys who will act quickly to help our patients (especially those who are in jeopardy of losing their decision making capacity very soon) create a will, a proxy/living will, a power of attorney, a custody arrangement, etc. They will go to the Joe Raso Hospice Residence or the patients’ home.
One of UHR's social workers will facilitate the connection of a patient/family member to an attorney. Thank you to the Bar Association's Executive Director, Nancy Law-Hogan and the members of the Bar Association who made this possible.
