Elder Law is an area of the law which specializes in the needs of the aged. A practitioner in this field utilizes an array of distinctive legal tools and techniques to handle a variety of complex and interrelated matters. Depending upon the situation at hand, these matters might include (i) estate planning concerns, (ii) a strategy and program for implementing long term care choices, (iii) Guardianship issues, (iv) Medicaid and Social Security issues, (v) planning for possible incapacity (vi) assistance in locating the suitable type of care and (vii) establishing and coordinating the public and private financial sources to underwrite the costs of that care.
At all times the approach and demeanor of such an attorney must encourage trust and confidence on behalf of both the senior citizen as well as his or her family.
Your personal objectives should be discussed specifically with such a qualified practitioner so as to enable all concerned to make an informed and intelligent decision as to what pattern of legal protection will best serve the needs of the senior client.
