AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly (LCE) has created a series of Adopt-A-Project initiatives to provide community service opportunities for the legal and non-legal staff of large law firms.
In an "Adopt-A-Nursing Home" project, a law firm augments the long-term care Ombudsman Program for a specific nursing home. Both lawyers and non-lawyers are trained and certified by the Ombudsman staff at the DC Bar to monitor the quality of care in long–term care facilities and, where appropriate, provide representation in discharge and transfer hearings.
Other initiatives include:
