Elder Law: It is never too early to prepare for the unexpected

Jan 16,2023

Planning for our future should be a top priority, making sure our estates and wishes are in order prior to an event that puts us and our families into crisis mode.

Elder law attorneys can be a vital resource for implementing a solid legal and financial plan for older adults. These attorneys are specially trained to deal with the unique legal issues that seniors face as they age.

According to the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), elder law encompasses many fields of law, with elder law attorneys specializing in numerous areas, including:

  • Administration and management of estates and trusts
  • Estate planning and probate
  • Trusts, wills, and other financial documents
  • Long-term care placements in S.L.C and nursing homes
  • Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security appeals and claims
  • Elder abuse and fraud
  • The preservation or transfer of assets to avoid spousal impoverishment when a spouse enters a nursing home

The sooner you start talking to an elder law attorney, the more options you will have as you navigate the aging planning process, ensuring that your assets are protected and that your wishes are respected. ☀️
