Who Will Care For You When You Can't Do It Yourself?
If you are either facing or now enjoying retirement, now more than ever you need the help of experienced legal counsel.
There are many reasons for this. First, needing long-term nursing home or in home care is a real possibility. How will you afford it? Or will the cost of this care destroy the nest egg you worked so hard to create?
Another reason is the real possibility of you or your spouse suffering a serious illness. Who makes the medical decisions if the person who is ill cannot?
Yet another reason is the real possibility of mental incapacity. If you cannot take care of yourself, make personal and/or financial decisions — or if your spouse cannot take care of himself or herself — who will?
Do you have the necessary legal documents in place to deal with all of these possibilities? We are asking you these questions not to scare you but to help prepare you, because we have the answers you need. We are the experienced Westchester County, New York, elder law attorneys at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP.
