Senior Living & Caregiver Legal Services

EMPOWERING YOU TO LIVE LIFE ON YOUR TERMS.

A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE FOR BETTER OVERALL HEALTH.

El Concilio understands that whether you’re a senior, a caregiver to a senior or family member, it is important to keep your independence and have the opportunity to maintain a better quality of life for yourself.

Our Senior & Caregiver Legal Services Center provides assistance and referrals to low income seniors, their caregivers and disabled individuals on issues that affect independent living, choice and financial security. Through community outreach and education, the department’s goal is to increase awareness and have seniors obtain the support they need.

Services are available from our Sutter Center at 224 South Sutter Street in Stockton CA, and at area community and senior centers, listed on page 5 of this brochure. Call us at (209) 644-2600 for more information, or to schedule an appointment.

Under the guidance of a senior right professional and a consulting attorney, the department offers legal advice, workshops, will prep, power of attorney, restraining orders, small claims help, filling out forms, writing legal letters, and other issues confronting seniors, their caregivers and disabled individuals.
