“As a way to thank healthcare workers personally, we want to make sure that they have the documents that are necessary to provide direction to family and physicians as to their feelings about being kept alive with heroic measures.”

To honor the dedicated and selfless heroes of our healthcare system during the coronavirus, Elder Law Associates PA, an AV® Preeminent-rated elder law firm headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, is proud to announce it is now offering free legal documents for frontline healthcare workers in South Florida.

“We want to thank our frontline healthcare workers for stepping up, putting their own lives in danger, by continuing to provide much-needed care to the hundreds of thousands of individuals that have been affected by the coronavirus,” said Howard S. Krooks, Esq., CELA, CAP, partner of Elder Law Associates PA. “You are the most amazing heroes, and the entire country and world owes you our deepest gratitude for all of the work that you are doing to beat COVID-19.”
According to Elder Law Associates PA Partner Ellen S. Morris, Esq., “As a way to thank healthcare workers personally, we want to make sure that they have the documents that are necessary – a designation of healthcare surrogate and living will – to enable another individual of the person’s choosing to make healthcare decisions if they’re unable to make it for themselves, and also to provide direction to family and physicians as to their feelings about being kept alive with heroic measures.” She added, “We are going to be doing this as a thank you to frontline healthcare workers for as long as they need the documents during this pandemic.”
