There are a number of challenges for both the aging person and those who support that person. It can be very overwhelming to think about the care you need as an aging senior, but the earlier you make plans the more options you will have in preparing for your care. Ignoring or procrastinating on the realities of aging almost always results in difficult outcomes for you and your loved ones, and often eliminates your ability to make your own choices in advance.
While it can be emotional and difficult to address the issues around aging, you will not regret working with an Elder Law attorney as early as possible.
The worst time to make difficult decisions is in the midst of an emergency when choices must be made quickly and sometimes without all of the information needed to respond appropriately. There are also a number of rules and regulations that can make the list of options available very limited if your responding to a health care or long-term care budget crisis instead of planning before the emergency arose.

We create detailed, thorough create powers of attorney so trusted individuals can make important decisions if you can no longer make them for yourself.
