What Is Elder Law Planning?
For many families, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the prospect of helping aging loved ones with decisions about estate planning or health care, particularly when long-term care is necessary. Fortunately, there are steps that individuals and their families can take to plan for the future.
At Robertson, Oswalt & Associates, in Little Rock, Arkansas, we help families and individuals who find themselves dealing with elder law issues.
Knowledgeable Advice About Elder Law And Special Needs Planning
The term elder law planning is used to describe the process by which older adults and their families set out a strategy for dealing with a variety of issues, including:
- Medicare and Medicaid planning: For many families, it is essential to plan ahead to ensure that a loved one can use Medicaid funds to pay for nursing home care.
- Long-term care planning: Crafting a comprehensive plan can help ensure that an older loved one can both pay for the care he or she needs and pass on assets to family members.
- Miller trusts and special needs trusts: In some circumstances, establishing a Miller or special needs trust may be necessary to ensure that a loved one can receive the care he or she needs.
No matter the situation, our elder law attorneys work closely with our clients to develop plans that not only meet their unique needs, but also offer them and their loved ones peace of mind.
