Elder Care Planning

Elder Care Law and planning is complicated. It involves the analysis and evaluation of the use of living trusts, statutory powers of attorneys for personal business transactions, medical powers of attorneys, directives to physicians (“living wills”), HIPPA releases, designation of guardians in the event of disability, designation of agents to control disposition of remains, Medicare and Medicaid use, gap insurance, long term care insurance, assisted living care and financial management.

If you plan carefully, you can take care of your needs, or the needs of a loved one, and eliminate confusion when the time arises for the need of help with these personal situations. These are important and, many times, overpowering issues. Unfortunately, many times elder care planning is ignored until a crisis arises or until it is too late to plan. This is unfair to loved ones and almost guarantees that the person in need of care will not get the care that they deserve. In some instances decisions will be made, not by loved ones, family and friends, but by total strangers. No plan is perfect for everyone. We like to explore detailed information about each family situation, offer general information and answers and execute a precisely fine tuned plan that fits the personal and financial situation of each family.
