Closing the Justice Gap for Older Adults Part One: Representing Older Adults in Nursing Facility Eviction Cases
This webinar in the Closing the Justice Gap for Older Adults training series will provide legal aid attorneys and staff with practical and readily actionable information and tools to represent older adults in nursing facility evictions.

Far too frequently, residents of nursing facilities are threatened with improper evictions. Sometimes the facility alleges that it cannot meet the resident’s needs, even though the facility is legally obligated to provide the required care. Sometimes evictions are based improperly on discrimination against Medicaid-eligible residents. Legal assistance and legal services attorneys play an important role partnering with Long-term Care Ombudsman advocates in fighting these evictions.

Presenters will share action-oriented strategies for representing nursing facility residents in these cases, including:
• Recognizing common, and possibly improper actions;
• Building partnerships, such as with long-term care ombudsmen, to connect with residents threatened with eviction;
• Establishing an attorney-client relationship with residents;
• Using facility records to support the resident’s case;
• Strategies for effectively navigating short timelines, preparing for and appearing at administrative hearings; and
• Next steps after the hearing decision issues.

• Introduction: Hilary Dalin, Administration for Community Living & Ron Flagg, Legal Services Corporation
• Eric Carlson, Justice in Aging
• Stephanie Langguth, Legal Aid of the Bluegrass
• Beverly Laubert, Administration for Community Living
• Amity Overall-Laib, National Long-Term Care Ombudsman Resource Center
