The Future of Elder Law is Here
At Life Care Planning law firm, we offer a holistic solution for families struggling with the demands of an elderly loved one’s care. Where traditional elder law firms focus only on saving the elder’s money for the next generation, our goal is to use the elder’s money to maximize the elder’s quality of life and independence.
What Is Elder Law?
An Elder Law Attorney is aware of the real life problems, health and otherwise, that seniors experience as they age. They are tied into a system of social workers, psychologists, geriatric care managers, and other elder care professionals who may be of assistance to their clients. Attorneys who work with the elderly bring more to their practice than just experience with the legal issues. They have an understanding of the elderly that allows them and their staff to ignore the myths related to aging. At the same time, they recognize and empathize with some of the true physical and mental difficulties that often accompany the aging process.
