May has been officially designated as Elder Law Month by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) in order to increase awareness for the need for seniors and others facing end of life to have planning in place for when they pass. For those of you who may not know, Elder law is the area of law that specifically addresses issues such as:
- Income, estate and gift tax matters & working with financial planners when appropriate
- Planning for the spouse (including long-term care and asset protection)
- Will and Trust planning
- Planning to avoid probate proceedings
- Long-term care planning
Because the family is already operating at such a high stress level due to concerns of well-being for their loved one, it can be overwhelming to search for legal documents that may or may not have been completed prior to this moment. In many crisis situations, the person requiring care cannot participate any further in decision making, making it even more difficult for the family.
We understand that during this emotionally taxing time, one would like to feel secure about legal issues in order to enjoy the final days spent with your elderly loved one.
