In our practice, Elder Law refers to planning for the health and economic well being of older adults or people with disabilities. This includes dealing with issues related to long term nursing care, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid and more. At the heart of this legal work is asset protection and advanced planning. The aging process is a unique journey for all of us, which makes discussing your options important. Too often we find well intended, but uninformed, decisions have been made which cause undue financial stress or hardship.
