What Our Hellertown Elder Law Attorney Can Help You With

Estate Planning

Estate planning is a process where you outline your wishes for the distribution of your assets and property in the event that you pass away. It can also help you prepare for possible incapacitation, meaning you can designate someone to make important medical-related decisions on your behalf in the event that you’re unable to.

Many people think that they don’t need to create an estate plan because they’re in good health, are too young, or are not “rich,” but the truth is, estate planning is for anyone who owns something they value. Our Hellertown elder law attorney can assess your situation and help you create a comprehensive estate plan that protects everything you’ve worked hard for.

Guardianships

Some seniors reach a point where they can no longer care for themselves. We can help you plan for this possibility by naming a guardian who can determine where you live and who will live with you. They would also be responsible for arranging your medical care, handling your finances, as well as your social and emotional well-being. Establishing guardianship can be a complex process since it involves petitioning the court and filling out lengthy and complicated paperwork, but the good news is we can walk you through the steps and simplify the process.

Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care is another matter many people tend to put on the back burner, but it’s necessary to avoid draining your life savings to cover your care. On average, assisted living in Pennsylvania costs between $5,000 and $12,000 a month. Unfortunately, this kind of care isn’t typically covered by insurance. If you don’t qualify for Medicaid, you can end up losing all the money you planned to leave behind for your family to pay for your care, or you could become a financial burden on your family. We can help prevent this from happening by assisting you with Medicaid planning.

Government Benefits

Another aspect of reaching your golden years is navigating your income. When you are no longer working, you need to apply for government benefits like Medicare, Social Security, Disability, and Veterans Aid. Applying and qualifying for these things, however, can be difficult. We can help with financial planning so that you can have peace of mind about your future.

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
