Elder Law

Let’s face it - a large amount of our nation’s population is getting to the age that they can’t do as much on their own any longer. Why? One reason is because our nation’s medical treatment system is second-to-none. Too good. “Back in the day” most people died within two years of retirement. Yep, late 60s. “80 is the new 60” is a legitimate statement! But does that mean people are actually healthier as they age?

So, what do we do about this? We have new and different issues to face. Laws change, Federal and State budgets are modified to deal with the burgeoning financial burden of caring for the aging population. In the past decade, laws such as Medicare, Medicaid, and other related laws have changed dramatically. What the aging population was advised just a few years ago is completely different than what is advised today.

But there is good news! Finding good help, however, may prove difficult, unless you’re reading this.

Several different “legal tools” may be employed in concert to achieve an objective. Sometimes it just takes one tool… sometimes many. We will first evaluate your needs and desires, then work with you to determine the best strategy for your aging needs and concerns.
