May is National Elder Law Month! This serves as a reminder to educate the public on the legal issues unique to people as they age. Elder Law is a specialized and complex area of law. Elder Law Attorneys assist seniors and their families with planning for the eventuality of aging and addressing the needs that will arise. The goal is to improve the lives of seniors and their families.
People have a tendency to wait to deal with issues when a crisis emerges, rather than taking the time to plan in advance. We encourage seniors and their families to consult with an Elder Law Attorney well in advance of a crisis. Planning in advance not only helps alleviate stress, it helps ensure a better quality of life. With proper planning you and your family can get the services and support you need as you get older.
An Elder Law Attorney can help you:
- Protect your assets in the event you or your spouse needs Long-Term Care at home, at an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home.
- Protect assets you are leaving to a disabled child, while ensuring your child is still eligible to receive his or her Medicaid or SSI benefits.
- Find, keep, and pay for Long-Term Care.
- Obtain Medicaid Long-Term Care benefits.
- Probate or administrate your estate or trust.
