Wilkes-Barre Area Elder Law Attorney

Preparing for the future is important today

The term "elder law" is used to focus on the special legal rights, unique challenges and day to day issues faced by senior citizens. Attorneys who work in this field need to master an ever-changing body of law, legislation and regulations that deal with financial planning, healthcare and housing, discrimination, abuse and fraud.

The baby boomer generation is technically defined as people born between 1946 and 1964, or people who are currently in their 50’s 60’s and 70’s. As this generation becomes senior citizens, the need for in-home care and all types of nursing care will increase dramatically. The planning and execution of legal issues around elder care require experience and attention to detail. Rely on us to ensure that you and your family is prepared for whatever challenges you face as you age.

We help with a variety of elder law issues including:

  • Long-term care planning
  • Assisted living
  • Retirement planning
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships
  • Healthcare issues
  • In-home care
  • Nursing home placement

Elder care industries of all sorts are already seeing increased demand as the baby boomer generation grows older. Planning for the future is critical, and choosing a trusted advisor who can help you navigate through these processes efficiently and accurately makes a big difference. I work with each of my clients to ensure a balance of your personal autonomy with security and safeguards to protect your assets and ensure you can carry out your retirement plan as you’d like.

Long-term care planning

For now, you pay for medical insurance and your medical bills are covered. As you age, these bills will increase, as will the likelihood that you will need care. A long-term care plan can help you protect your access to the care you need while being as cost-effective as possible . I can inform you and advise you of your options, and help guide you through the choices. I have experience with long-term care insurance, Medicare and Medicaid and can help you through the sometimes complex application and approval process. I will work with you to ensure you and your aging family members get the medical assistance you are entitled to. Contact me today to discuss the options available to you.
