3 Reasons to Work with an Elder Care Attorney

Working with an elder care attorney will provide you with trustworthy and knowledgeable guidance.

As you age, it’s critical to consider many factors that must be addressed to ensure that you and your loved ones stay safe and protected in the case of illness or death. For instance, you will need to think about your healthcare wishes, what you wish to do in the case of incapacitation, and how you can financially support either your desire to stay in your home or your need to live in a care home or pay for in-house care. Some of this planning can be done with the assistance of some family members, but it is always more beneficial to work with an elder care attorney when navigating these complex areas of the future. When you work with the trustworthy Millman Law Group, you and your family can enjoy the following advantages. 

Custom Estate Planning Services

It might be tempting to call it a day and complete your estate plan using generic online documents. However, most of those documents are vague and may not sufficiently protect your best interests. Legal battles can quickly arise from estate planning documents that leave things up to interpretation and encourage heated disputes. 

Your elder care attorney can use their extensive legal knowledge and experience to guide you through the process of creating custom legal documents tailored to suit your needs and desires for your estate. This not only makes the process easier, as you are guided by someone familiar with these documents but ensures peace of mind for the future. 

Financial Planning

It may not be pleasant to think about times in the future when you might be unable to communicate your wishes regarding medical treatment. Still, it’s essential to clarify what you want in that situation. Your elder care attorney can help you create the necessary documents that outline specifically what protections you may want in place in cases of incapacitation, so your wishes must be followed. You can clarify how you want your finances handled in that situation and what medical care you prefer.

You may also face a time when you need skilled, full-time nursing care. You will have to plan financially for this situation. Your elder care attorney will work with you to assess your financial situation carefully. They can help: 

  • Determine Medicaid eligibility
  • Explore long-term care insurance options
  • Navigate capital gains tax concerns

Financial matters can easily become complex and overwhelming, so help from an experienced professional – who isn’t a family member involved in your estate – can be the best way to protect your interests. 

Trustworthy and Compassionate Guidance

Elder care attorneys understand more than others that family dynamics can be complicated and fraught. We also understand how difficult it can be to discuss sensitive issues with your family members, so a trusted attorney is essential for helping you plan for your future. Working with your attorney as a neutral third party gives you a chance to receive helpful guidance without the emotional weight that comes with family. 

When you work with The Millman Law Group, you will receive compassionate care from someone who wants to help you protect your interests and your legacy and someone who is professionally qualified to plan your estate. Are you ready to prepare for the future? Contact The Millman Law Group today.
