Amici Curiae of North Carolina Chapter of NAELA, Disability Rights North Carolina, North Carolina Regional Long-Term Care Ombudsmen Association and Corporation of Guardianship
In the August 29, 2018 eBulletin, it was stated that Legal Aid of NC requested funding. Please note a correction that the North Carolina Chapter of NAELA requested funding to support preparation of an amicus brief in the matter of Greenhaven Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center v. Foust, which involves the nursing home residents’ right to retain characterization of their homeplace as their “primary residence” upon entering a nursing home (to protect the home from being sold by the nursing home and potentially other creditors during their lifetime). NC NAELA also took the lead in preparing the amicus brief and assembling co-signors. The NAELA Foundation Board approved the grant request to the North Carolina Chapter of NAELA in the matter of Greenhaven Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center v. Foust in the amount of $2,500. NC NAELA also provided funding for the amicus brief.
