Dad had a stroke, and now he’s in the hospital. Or mom is starting to forget the grandkids’ names when you visit. Or maybe your spouse, though not at all elderly, can no longer care for themselves after an illness or accident.
You want to make sure they’re taken care of, but you’re not sure where to start (or how to find the money). With your emotions in hyperdrive, we’ll help you ensure your aging loved ones get the care they need, so you can be their advocate – not their caretaker.
Understanding Elder Law
A solid plan can help you support aging parents or family members by:
Preserving their dignity
When a parent’s health is failing, adult children can feel helpless and not know where to start. We’ll guide you through the complexities of end-of-life planning, educate you on your options, review legal documents as needed and empower you to make the best choices for your entire family.
Protecting financial assets from abusers
Don’t leave your loved one vulnerable to scammers or greedy family members. Using powers of attorney and guardianships, or extra-creative planning based on our experience with more than 1,000 families, we’ll create legal tools that put the right people in charge to manage health and financial issues appropriately.
Paying for long-term care
Nursing home costs can run more than $100,000 a year, making it easy to burn through a lifetime of savings. A properly structured long-term care plan can help you make the right decisions for your loved one. This can include taking advantage of public benefits like Medicaid while still preserving assets for your family, or finding creative ways to use existing resources to preserve your loved one’s dignity and independence.
You want attorneys with extensive experience navigating the legal, financial and emotional concerns of caring for an aging loved one.
We break down your options in plain English (or Spanish, if you prefer) and help you understand your choices, so you can make the right one for your family. We can also help with nursing home, rehab or hospital admission contract review, which can protect you from financial liability.
Once you hire Generation Law to represent you, we’re your people. That is, we’re the ones who can help you with that – whatever that may be. And if we can’t handle those issues, you can be sure that we’ll refer you to experienced attorneys who can.
With more than 20 years of experience, we understand how to find the money to help cover the incredible expense of long-term care, protecting your loved one and the rest of your family.
