Elder Law Issues
As your parents or a loved one age, you are faced with a new set of issues and concerns. You must decide how best to care for the elderly person, if you want to keep him or her in the home and how you will finance this care.

Our team will work with you to create a plan based on your loved one’s specific situation. We equip you with the answers and information you need to make educated decisions.
Elder Law Solutions For Families
Some elderly individuals want to stay in their home as long as possible, while other families choose to move the person to an assisted living facility or care home. Once that decision has been made, the family must determine how care will be provided, whether selecting in-home care or a specific facility.
They must also figure out how to finance this care. We help the family assess the individual’s savings and the money available to provide for the elderly person. Our team also helps the family look into qualification for government programs and other financial assistance that might be available, given the person’s situation.
We provide clear understanding and guidance throughout this process, putting the family at ease, comfortable with the decisions they are making.
Investigating And Stopping Abuse
Our team also assists families investigating potential abuse of an elderly person, including physical abuse, emotional manipulation and financial abuse. It is not uncommon for a care giver to exert influence over an elderly individual, manipulating him or her for financial gain. We also investigate issues of nursing home abuse or instances where your loved one has been harmed.
