The first step to start planning for elder care is to call ElderLawLexington, which is the law firm of McClelland & Associates, PLLC. You will be given an appointment to speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable elder care attorneys who can answer initial questions. We will find a convenient time for you to meet with Robert McClelland or Mark Maddox. While we encourage every family to preplan for elder care, we also see individuals who need immediate legal action during times of crisis. Regardless of the issues you face, ElderCareLexington is here to help.
Elder care law is a vast area of the law and can affect many areas of elder life. If your mother needs immediate nursing home care, can she afford it? If your father is not able to take care of finances or make his own medical decisions, who will do it for him? What if someone in a position of responsibility is taking financial advantage of an elderly family member? What about your future? Have you designated a person to make decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated? Do you have a financial plan to pay for in-home care or nursing home care should you need it?
The elder care attorneys at ElderLawLexington represent individuals and family members in all aspects of elder law and long-term planning. Our goal is to help prepare you or a parent for a comfortable future and address any immediate legal issues regarding the care of an elderly family member.
Almost three out of four people over the age of 65 will require long-term care at some point in their lives. Nursing home care averages over $70,000 per year and can be considerably more. Without proper planning, most families exhaust their savings within a year or two of a family member moving into a nursing home. The elder care attorneys at ElderLawLexington can create a plan in advance to protect your assets in the event you or a loved one requires care in the future. We can also help you cope financially and emotionally with a Medicaid planning crisis situation.
ElderLawLexington is tied into a system of social workers, psychologists, geriatric care managers and other elder care professionals who can also be of assistance to their clients. Our elder care attorneys who work with the elderly bring more to our practice than expertise in elder law. We have an understanding of the elderly that allows our staff to ignore the myths related to aging. At the same time, we recognize and empathize with some of the true physical and mental difficulties that often accompany the aging process. Elder care planning is a comprehensive approach that focuses on the quality of life for later years and the quality of life for family and loved ones during and after their lifetime.
Elder Law Lexington has preeminent legal expertise, wise counsel, excellent skills and utmost integrity. We develop nurturing, compassionate, attentive relationships with our clients. When everything is combined, these comprise the core of our daily mission to exceed our clients’ expectations through securing and protecting them and their families’ future.
