Elder Law and Elder Care Law — Planning for Loved Ones
Do you have aging parents or a loved one who may need assistance with care in the near future? If so, you aren’t alone. The majority of seniors — 70 percent — will require long-term, nursing home, assisted living or home health care during their life. So it’s not really a question of “whether” care will be needed, but more a question of “when.”
Many families, however, get caught up in the daily routine of life and don’t get around to planning until something urgent happens. And if that sounds like you — don’t worry. It’s never too late to start planning for your loved ones’ care, whether it’s years away or you need help now.
Experienced elder law attorneys understand that no two situations are created alike, and therefore it’s important to understand and evaluate all options available. We can help you explore a variety of potential resources, which may include:
- Medicare consultation or appeals.
- Long-term care insurance.
- Applying for Medicaid appeals and recertification.
- Executing a last will and testament, a power of attorney or a health care proxy.
- Social Security.
- Nursing home appeals.
We take a holistic approach to providing legal services and helping you access the resources that you need most. And when things feel confusing, we’re just a phone call away. It’s our goal to simplify the process so you can focus on what matters most: your loved one.
Navigating elder care law for your loved ones can feel confusing, especially if you haven’t been through the process before. If you need help, please contact us today.
