Welcome! I am thrilled to have you visit this site, and I hope that you learn a little more about elder law while you are here!
The mission of the Elder Law Update is to provide reliable, useful, and easy to read information about dealing with aging from a legal perspective. In discussions about my career with others, I have found that many people have no idea what “Elder Law” is. However, when I begin talking about the issues my clients commonly face, heads start nodding and every person seems to have a personal story of how that issue affected his or her family. We are all affected by the same types of problems, but we are not equally educated regarding all of the solutions available through planning and preparation. I hope that the articles on this blog can help seniors and their family members learn about the legal issues often faced by the elderly, and the many ways in which an elder law attorney can help guide aging family members through that period of transition.
Please stay tuned for monthly posts in areas ranging from estate planning with wills and trusts, probate of wills, administering trusts after the documents are signed, dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, planning and paying for long term care, powers of attorney and advance directives for healthcare, and more.
