Planning for the Elderly and Disabled
Advance planning for disability allows the Firm’s clients to provide for proper management of their assets in the event they become disabled, without giving up control until he or she actually becomes disabled. The instruments used, consisting of Living Wills, Health Care Proxies, Living Trusts and Powers of Attorney,when properly drafted, will avoid the need for commencement of a costly and time-consuming guardianship proceeding in court. Annette Lawrence, the Senior Paralegal of the Firm, is especially proficient in preparing Medicaid applications and having such approved by the relevant governmental agencies, having done so for more than twenty years. Medicaid planning often becomes particurly crucial in one's later years because, assuming approval, Medicaid provides for not only nursing home care but also homecare services in one’s home.
