Elder law is a highly specialized and increasingly important area of the law defined by our client’s needs and not as much by a specific area of the law. We are often asked at what age someone should seek the advice of an elder care attorney. Based on our experience it’s never too early to plan.
Clients in their 30s, 40s and 50s need to consider long term planning to make sure they will have enough to live on when they retire. In addition, they should consider and understand long-term care insurance and what those policies cover and pay for. Clients in their 60s are considering and planning for retirement; and clients in their 70s, 80s and 90s are faced with decisions about long term care options which may include nursing home care or assisted living.
Our goal with respect to elder law is to help you to protect your assets against the high costs associated with getting older so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing there is a plan in place for your future.
