It is not designed to give indepth information to seniors but to give them general information about issues they, or their caregivers, may face as they get older." This program was started by the Alleghany Bath Highland Bar back about 2003 and was later adopted by the Virginia State Bar. Since then similar programs have been conducted all over Virginia.
