Experience In Long-Term Care Planning

When considering the needs of your family, I commonly examine the need for these three elements of elder law, including:

  • Estate plan: An estate plan will help you anticipate and manage the affairs of your estate, including property and long-term assets. Writing an estate plan can help guard against actions that you do not want to occur, such as certain property being sold when you want to keep it in the family.
  • Medicaid vs. private insurance: This includes examining potential options for funding of long-term care. Ultimately, we want to outline a plan that is in your best interests so you are not left in a vulnerable financial position when you are most in need of resources.
  • Powers of attorney: This defines who can make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to make them for yourself based on certain conditions. The question to consider here is who do you trust?
