Proper estate planning through the use of Wills, Advance Directives, Trusts, and other legal tools may play a vital role in you receiving proper medical care and helping you to preserve and pass on your assets to your loved ones without the fear of running through your life savings and becoming a financial burden on your children, or being unable to adequately provide for your spouse.
Tri County Elder Law, along with our network of senior care partners, is here to help you to understand and facilitate your long term care options. Most elders cannot afford long term care with just their pensions and social security income. We teach people about the resources available to help care for themselves or their elderly loved ones. These options may include accessing Long Term Care Medicaid Benefits or applying for those Veterans Benefits that are available to many thousands of service men and women and their surviving spouses.
We encourage you to plan ahead! Pre-planning gives family members the time and knowledge to act according to the wishes and in the best interests of the elderly person. Tri County Elder Law is committed to providing compassionate legal guidance to children and caregivers to help avoid the complications and difficult decisions of the aging process that are especially stressful in a time of crisis.
