Carson City Triad presents “Get Your Ducks in a Row – Legal Documents Every Senior Should Have,” by Colby Prout of Nevada Legal Services on Tuesday from noon to 1 p.m. at the Carson City Senior Center, 911 Beverly Drive. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants who attend will learn about intestate succession, small estates, will basics, avoiding probate and will be provided with information about powers of attorney.

Nevada Legal Services is a non-profit organization that provides free legal services to Nevadans across the state. The organization provides legal services for seniors at the Senior Center on the first Thursday of each month by appointment.

“Advance planning helps to alleviate stress for everyone involved,” said Courtney Warner, executive director of the Senior Center. “It’s really important to be proactive and take the time to make sure someone has durable power of attorney or the authority to make financial decisions if you become incapacitated.”

Warner said this is the second year Triad has provided this information.

“This workshop was really well attended last year and participants wanted more time with the speaker,” she said. “Our new one-hour program format will allow for more sharing of information and give people more time to ask questions.”

Light refreshments sponsored by Costco will be served.

Carson City Triad provides health and safety related information monthly at the Senior Center. Triad is a collaboration between the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department and Senior Center.
