Elder Law is an umbrella term for a number of areas and issues that often come together at a certain time in individual’s lives, but everyone needs to think about them, not just seniors! Foundational estate planning, life planning for your financial security and long-term care needs, documented choices for loved ones to assist you with capacity issues, should you need them, and navigating long-term care are just some of the issues with which an Elder Law Attorney can assist you. Temporary or permanent vulnerabilities may need to be addressed, family dynamics may be challenging, and understanding your options and making good choices can be very difficult for individuals and families when you’re overwhelmed and unprepared.

How does Elder Law effect me?
Careful, thoughtful planning can ensure your health care needs are met when you are unable to care for yourself in whole or in part, at home or in a care facility. Additionally, evaluating your wishes and concerns when you reach the end of your life, assessing your choices, and articulating them clearly for your friends and family can assist your care-takers in keeping you comfortable and ensuring your wishes are met. Investing now in thoughtful consideration is invaluable for you and your loved ones in the future.
