Elder law focuses on the special legal needs of older persons. Counsel and preparation of common estate planning documents such as Wills, Powers of Attorney and Trusts is often the beginning. Effective planning for Medicaid coverage for long term care requires attention to detail and the individual’s goals. Often, people are uncomfortable planning for their death or disability. What will become of their property when they die? How will their affairs be managed when they are no longer able to manage things themselves? These are some of the most sensitive, serious, and significant problems that anyone will ever deal with. Many times elder estate planning involve one or more of the following:

  • Wills
    • Trusts
    • Guardianships
    • Durable powers of attorney
    • Healthcare powers of attorney
    • Living wills
    • Medicare planning
    • Social Security
    • Nursing home care and financing
