Caring For A Loved One Through Guardianship

If you are faced with a loved one or friend who can no longer make decisions as to his or her personal and financial affairs or is a victim of elder abuse (physical and/or financial), he or she may need to protections provided by a Guardianship proceeding.

Because your loved one has such physical or mental challenges such as Alzheimer’s, senility, dementia, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) or multiple sclerosis, he or she may no longer be able to make the appropriate health care, financial or property decisions. In such cases, often your best alternative may be the appointment of a guardian for that person, especially if he or she does not have an appropriate power of attorney or health care proxy.

We are very experienced in matters of guardianships and powers of attorney (POA). We are the attorneys at the Westchester, New York, guardianship and elder law firm Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP.

If your loved one can no longer take care of himself or herself, protect him or her with a guardianship. Call 914-269-2367 today.
