Aged care workers invited for free will drafting

Aged care workers in the Gold Coast and Tweed area have the opportunity to speak with estate planning lawyers and draft a will for free.

Aged care workers have persevered in an industry marked by continuous change and demanding conditions, enduring years of challenges. These challenges have ranged from workforce shortages to poor working conditions and the closure of facilities.

Attwood Marshall Lawyers will be running its free will-drafting initiative throughout the month of March as a way to give back to workers who provide essential care to older Australians.

The offer includes a 30-minute estate planning review for advice on any strategies individuals may want to consider, and the drafting of one simple will to be prepared by an experienced estate planning lawyer. Anyone currently employed in the aged care sector in the Gold Coast and Tweed areas is eligible to take up the offer.

“At Attwood Marshall Lawyers, we understand the commitment and compassion of aged care professionals who selflessly care for our elderly population,” said Jeff Garrett, Legal Practice Director at Attwood Marshall Lawyers.

“We believe that everyone deserves access to quality legal services, especially those who have dedicated their lives to caring for others.

“The aged care sector is a highly demanding industry to work in, particularly when long hours and staffing shortages are all too common. By offering complimentary simple wills throughout March, we want to ease the burden on these remarkable individuals, ensure that their wishes are preserved, and show our gratitude for everything they do.”

A simple will usually costs $440 to prepare. Simple wills do not include family provision advice, dealing with assets held in another country, or advice for people with a self-managed superannuation fund, family trusts or individuals who are a director of a company. Those matters are more complex than what a simple will can cover and would require a higher level of estate planning advice.

Aged care workers who wish to take advantage of this offer can call 1800 621 071 to book an appointment or visit https://attwoodmarshall.com.au/wills-and-estates/free-wills-for-aged-care-workers/.
