Elder Law FAQ, Part One

Elder law is a focus of law that provides legal planning for senior citizens or people with special healthcare needs such as Alzheimer’s disease. As people grow older, they will need to plan for medical and financial matters that they may not be able to deal with as they age. Planning ahead can ensure that their needs will be met. Some people help plan for their parents or other aging loved ones, and others may make plans for themselves.

Do I need an elder care attorney?

No one likes to think about getting older, but it is not something we can’t stop from happening. Rather than avoiding the thought of getting older or seeing a loved one age, accept that it is a part of life. Elder care law can help give you peace of mind knowing that you or your loved one’s legal affairs are in order.

What does this branch of law cover?

Elder law covers estate planning, issues relating to medical care, assisted living, nursing homes, and long term care. It can also cover guardianship, Medicare and Medicaid, power of attorney, healthcare directives, Social Security benefits and disability.

An elder law attorney will be able to help you see if you or your loved one qualifies for programs such as Medicaid and assisted living, long term care insurance and veteran’s benefits.
