An Elder Law Attorney Can Logically Advise You
It’s not uncommon for families to debate on the type of care that a loved one needs. A lot of emotions come into play. Millman Law Group can help indeed if you want logical and objective advice on the best care for your loved one. For example, most seniors desire to age in place, but sometimes that isn’t always the best decision. Whatever advice we recommend, it will ensure your loved one’s protection.
Long-Term Care Plan Development
An elder law attorney sees the ins and outs of financial and medical situations that affect the client and has a knowledgeable idea of what to expect in the future, especially regarding debilitating conditions (e.g., Alzheimer’s). An elder law attorney can provide sound advice on the type of care needed and if the individual will age in place or may require long-term care in a nursing home.
Ensure That a Durable Power of Attorney is Present
When you have a durable power of attorney in place, it makes a significant difference. A durable power of attorney, like the name suggests, has the power to make decisions on someone’s behalf if they become incapacitated. Our team will work with you to prepare those documents.
Help With Medicaid and VA Benefits
We’re very familiar with Medicaid and can help seniors and their caregivers navigate its ins and outs. If you need to know how to become eligible or how to apply, we have you covered. The same goes for Veterans’ Administration benefits and additional government resources. Overall, one of the top priorities of an elder care lawyer is to ensure that your loved one doesn’t suffer from spending all of their resources and that the process of aging is smoother.
