Elder Care Law

Elder Care Law helps with living trusts, power of attorney, Medicare, Medicaid, insurance and other senior legal issues. Still, law is so complicated, most it's very valuable to go to a family law or elder care law attorney, rather than elsewhere.  It would be foolish for us to try to replace these services with some downloadable form that may or may not work in your State.  It's far better for you to spend the money to get expert help.  What we do offer is general information and answers that may help you save time with these professionals once you begin arranging your affairs for the final stretch or your life.  If you plan well, you can take care of all your needs and eliminate the confusion once you start needing help with your personal business.  Elder care law covers who is empowered to take care of you once you can't do it yourself, how you want that care to proceed, directing the hospital as to long term life-support and life-saving measures, and seeing to it that any assets left after your final expenses are dispersed according to your wishes.  These are important and somewhat overpowering issues to tackle.  Unfortunately, many ignore these issues until too late, leaving the decisions to others, sometimes total strangers.  This is unfair to the people who love you and it almost guarantees you will not get the elder care you deserve.  If you're a caregiver, make sure your loved ones have their affairs in order before they're unable to speak for themselves.  If you're the one asking another to be caregiver for you, get their help putting your affairs in order so they have all the authority and asset access they need to give you the care you want.  I hope the following pages help you navigate the tricky waters of elder care law:
