Elder Care Law
This is the most sophisticated area of Common Sense Companies. You do not need a diagnosis to know that you, your family and your friends may be in need of long term care in the future. Long term care can cost a family hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, there are some remedies available that are misunderstood. These remedies can be done in the form of advanced planning that can save clients from the ravages of long term care costs, protect the stay-at-home spouse or preserve the family home for the heirs. Clients need asset protection and estate preservation that gives them the peace of mind needed to live out their final years with income and dignity.
We will, at some point, experience “The Elder Care Journey.” By viewing Stories about Trusts, you will learn about what can happen to a family’s inheritance or life savings if proper planning is not done. Can you believe that more than half of our adult population does not have a will or a written plan of any kind for the distribution of their assets when they pass away?
We have access to lawyers all over the country who are experts in the area of Elder Law. Although many people have friends who are attorneys, this is an area that an attorney should be a specialists in. Would you go to a general physician to perform brain surgery? Doctor specialize in specific areas for a reason! The same can be said for attorneys. That is why we like to work with Elder Law Specialists that are members of NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys). Our attorneys work with the family to guide them through the minefield of public benefits, VA Aid & Attendance benefits, Medicare, Social Security, special needs trusts, powers of attorney, and Medicaid.
