Estate Planning and Elder Law
Modern medicine and healthy living have made it possible for people to live much longer than we ever expected to just 50 years ago. Questions confronting seniors and their caregivers can cause sleepless nights and can take away peace of mind:
- What sort of legal strategies can protect me and my assets?
- Do I need a will?
- What will Medicare pay for?
- How will I pay for my long term care?
- If I need Medicaid, how do I qualify?
- Can I preserve my assets if my spouse has to go into a long term care facility?
- Who will make my healthcare decisions for me if I am unable to?
- Who will conduct my financial transactions if I am unable to?
- How can I change my will?
- Does my loved one need a court-ordered guardian?
- Should I create a trust or a special needs trust?
- How can I leave the most to my children and grandchildren without losing control of my finances?
