Elder law is a holistic approach in recognizing the incapacity of a senior loved one and to properly plan for their life needs together with their estate planning wishes.
What Are the Core Documents Any Senior Should Have?
Every senior should have a well-drafted Health Care Advance Directive and Durable Power of Attorney. This empowers trusted family members to make proper health care and financial decisions for their senior loved ones.
It is critical to note that not all advance directives and estate planning documents are drafted alike. Seniors should have their existing documents reviewed by an elder law firm such as Todd R. Zellen P.A. to see if updates may be necessary.
How Can Medicaid Help Seniors Pay for Long-Term Care?
Medicaid is a government program that pays the majority of long-term care costs. Medicaid will pay for the very best of nursing homes, and some assisted living and in-home care.
Family Asset Protection Planning is designed to protect the lifelong savings of a senior loved one and offers the opportunity to purchase additional care services that Medicaid does not cover.
Proper planning often means that a senior loved one can afford greater care services for a healthier, more comfortable life. With recent changes in the law, proper Medicaid planning is even more important.
Is a Trust a Key Component to a Good Estate Plan?
Yes. A revocable trust provides protection for you and your family. Our office is happy to discuss the key differences between a will and having a revocable trust. Avoiding probate is only one of the many benefits.
Is Using an Elder Law Attorney Only for Frail Seniors and Their Families?
Absolutely not! Often times, we see recent retirees and baby boomers and help them with their estate planning requirements. By incorporating Medicaid planning authority to our legal estate planning documents, you get the opportunity to plan later in life in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Estate planning attorneys don't always keep up on Medicaid rules and their constant changes to properly incorporate that language into their documents. This is why you need the assistance of our highly experienced and well-informed attorney to help you navigate through the complexities of elder law.
