EASTON — Mid-Shore Pro Bono, in collaboration with the Mid-Shore's Regional Senior Centers, joins the Elder Law Section Council of the Maryland State Bar Association in a state-wide initiative to provide preparation of Advance Directives for Seniors throughout Maryland on Wednesday, May 1. Fifteen volunteer attorneys from Mid-Shore Pro Bono will be at seven locations throughout the Mid-Shore to provide counseling and assist with preparing Advance Medical Directives for seniors, free of charge.

Everyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to have an advance directive. Seniors age 60 and over should call their local senior center to set up an appointment for free assistance with obtaining and completing an Advance Directive document from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 1.

Volunteers will be at the Grasonville Senior Center, Kent Island Senior Center, Sudlersville Senior Center, Amy Lynn Ferris Senior Center (Kent County), Caroline County Senior Center (HAPS Building), Talbot County Senior Center (Brookletts Place) and Pleasant Day Adult Day Care Center (Dorchester County).
