Why You Need An Elder Law Attorney

Caring for a spouse, a parent, or family member is a tough job. Preparing for the road ahead can be scary and difficult.

Unfortunately, many hesitate on planning for elder care and special needs, either for themselves, their parents, or a child with a disability, and often have to make quick decisions during an emergency.

An elder law attorney can assist in preparing estate planning documents, typically powers of attorney and advanced directives that allow you to make decisions for your family members when they can no longer do this for themselves.

An elder law attorney can also review what assets are available and put together a strategic plan for paying for care.  Elder law attorneys provide valuable assistance on Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran’s Benefits, Probate, and Estate planning.
