What Exactly Is Elder Law?
Elder law refers to the many varied legal considerations that go along with growing old, including:
- Estate planning, including making revisions to an existing estate plan to ensure that it’s up to date, particularly with regard to powers of attorney and advance directives
- Guardianships and conservatorships, which may become necessary when an elderly loved one becomes incapacitated and unable to care for themselves or their affairs
- Long-term care planning, which anticipates and prepares for the costs of care, including planning for Medicaid eligibility when appropriate
Our attorneys are very familiar with the nuances of these and other elder law concerns.
