Elder law encompasses all of the aspects of planning, counseling, educating, and advocating for seniors. It is at the core of all we do at Chayet & Danzo, LLC. In addition to seniors, we represent caregivers and fiduciaries, including children, conservators, guardians, estate administrators, trustees, and agents who have the responsibility of caring for an elderly person or disabled adult.
While good planning is important at all stages of life, it is a must for the elderly. The legal problems of the elderly are often linked to the aging process and can include problems of incapacity and long-term health care issues. Our attorneys assist clients in planning for possible long-term care needs, locating the appropriate type of care facility, coordinating private and public resources, such as Medicaid, to finance the cost of care, and advocating to ensure our client's right to quality care.
Our elder law attorneys go beyond conventional issues and offer practical assistance to our clients in a number of areas, including: drafting durable powers of attorney, health Care and End-of-Life directives, fiduciary Representation, public benefit counseling, private insurance counseling, estate and gift tax advice, elder abuse, and placement counseling.
