Protecting And Caring For Our Elderly
Elder law centers on the particular legal issues arising from the emotional, financial, and practical concerns that each of us faces as we age. It includes topics that most of us are familiar with such as drafting wills or probating an estate, but it also includes wealth preservation, long-term health care planning (including planning for incapacity), coordination of care and benefits, and planning the distribution of assets after death.
As people live longer, more consideration must be given to the preservation of assets to continue to be able to live well. In addition, there are long-term health care implications to be considered such as the coordination of benefits and planning for incapacity.
