Helping your aging parents

Your parent raised you…and now perhaps roles have reversed and you’re in the driver’s seat.  You’re not alone, and we can help.  We believe that not only the legal and financial issues related to aging are important to address, but the family issues cannot be ignored.

Let’s face it; if you’re the power of attorney, you have a legal duty to do the best for your parent or loved one.  We can help - we do it every day with great success.  Schedule a consult today.


I don't think my parent should be at home. What level of care is appropriate?

Good question. What do they currently need help with? Can they cook, use the bathroom, feed themselves, get clothes on… and the list goes on. We can help assess the level of care needed. Finding the appropriate level of care is key to protecting assets and saving money. Here are some levels of care that are common:

  • Limited care in the home.
  • Extensive care in the home.
  • Independent living (this is where Bingo started… maybe).
  • Assisted Living
My parent is at home… But not for long. Where to next?
Just call us.  We have resources to help you find a place that will care for your loved one.  This type of advice and access to resources is complimentary.
My parent has Alzheimer's / Dementia… What are our options?

We understand the devastating impact of memory loss.  It pervades all aspects of life and causes great concern for the safety of the one suffering from dementia as well as those living with that individual.  The good news is that there are several options for care.  We have resources to help.

To find out what is best for your situation, give us a call and schedule a free consultation.  We can help determine both legal and care-related solutions.

My parent is highly resistant to leaving their home.
Don’t want to leave home? We highly recommend that you schedule a visit with a placement coordinator at an independent living or assisted living facility.  If you don’t know where to go, just call us.  We can help you find a person to help.
What can we expect financially? Aging can be expensive.
Is it really $8,000 per month?  Yes.  So, how will your loved one pay for excellent care without running out of money?  Our seminar, “4 Ways to Pay for Long Term Care: Which is best for you?” addresses exactly this - no matter if you’re decades away from needing care or already in the nursing home.  Attend our seminar or schedule a personal consultation.
