Children and family members who are caregivers are often confronted with overwhelming decisions. There are so many important concerns and challenges. What level of care does my dad need? Will my mom be safe at home? How are we going to pay for it? My husband needs long term care, will I have to move out of my house?
There are countless decisions that must be made with respect to caring for elderly and sickly family members. The variety of options and resources available to our aging population may seem overwhelming and the apparent cost of long term care can be daunting for many individuals. Working with an Elder Law attorney is a critical first step in formulating a comprehensive plan so that your family members can receive the assistance they need and protect their assets for the future.
An Elder Law attorney will analyze your loved ones’ long-term care needs and financial condition to formulate an individualized plan that meets their goals, with a focus on preserving their life’s savings and the potential need for Medicaid benefits.
Additionally, Elder Law attorneys have relationships with other professionals who work with seniors, such as geriatric care managers and social workers, all of whom we can call upon as resources to best serve the needs of your loved ones. If you are concerned about your loved one’s care and financial longevity, schedule a consultation with Mindy Felinton today.
