Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys Providing Legal Power for Seniors
Elder law is a term that encompasses estate planning and other issues that affect seniors. At Hook Law Center, we can assist you in preparing a Life Care Plan to coordinate and pay for any long-term care needs you may have.
In addition, we can assist you with matters such as powers of attorney, planning for incapacity, guardianships, and advance directives for health care.
In Home / Nursing Home / Elder Care
A primary financial concern for people growing older is the potential need for long-term care either in the Home or in a Nursing Home. This need can be difficult to address in a retirement plan, because it is a large expense that may or may not become necessary. Nevertheless, long-term care can and should be planned for, and our attorneys are here to help.
Our goal is to provide you with solutions based on your family’s individual needs. Long-term care insurance may be the best answer for some families who plan in advance. Others may plan to rely on Medicaid to pay for any nursing home care that may be needed, in which case it is essential to meet with our Medicaid planning attorneys, who can help you preserve your family’s assets while ensuring eligibility for public benefits. Then there are those family who fail to plan in advance, while prior planning provides the best results, we can help these families in crisis. If you or a family member is privately paying for In Home care or Nursing Home care, contact our Attorneys right away to protect a portion of your assets.
