Elder Law

Elder law addresses the variety of issues which individuals face as they age. In addition to assisting individuals and families to plan for the ultimate disposition of their assets, an elder law attorney often also helps individuals and families deal with the issues which arise when a person’s decision making capacity is impaired due to Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. This can involve arranging for a family member to take over the decision making responsibilities through a power of attorney or in some instances arrange for the appointment of a court-appointed guardian or conservator.

An elder law attorney can also assist a family in making financial arrangements to address assisted living or nursing home expenses. In some situations, this can include planning to maximize assets retained prior to qualifying for Medicaid coverage.
