Elder Planning Isn't Just For The Elderly

An elder law attorney can help you as a caregiver to a loved one

Filling the role of caretaker to an older adult who you love, such as a parent, can sometimes be a difficult job. Needs vary, but you might find yourself driving to medical appointments, handing out medication or even providing mobility assistance and daily grooming care.

Care options for an aging loved one

Long-term care often centers around nursing homes. They offer a lot of assistance for an aging loved one, giving the family peace of mind. It's often not realistic to assume that the family can offer this type of intensive care on their own, and the nursing home makes sure that the person is properly watched by professionals who understand elderly needs, degenerative brain diseases, medication distribution tactics and much more.

The importance of the right nursing home for your loved one

Deciding that it's time for your loved one to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility isn't easy. People often experience a range of emotions from guilt to fear. The truth is that many times, nursing homes have an unnecessarily negative reputation. Many facilities focus on cleanliness, as well as top care for the residents.

Emergency preparedness and what nursing homes need to do

When medically frail and dependent individuals rely on a nursing home's care, it's unacceptable for the nursing home to be ill-prepared for an emergency. Emergencies happen, whether they're due to fire or a snowstorm. The facility needs to have steps in place to protect its residents and to make sure they get the care they need during the emergency situation.

What documents help to determine medical care?

As you age, it's important to make plans for your future health care. This isn't something that's easy to handle or think about, but taking care of the details now might help you later on. And it will almost certainly help to make life easier for your loved ones.

Federal, state lawmakers working to combat financial abuse of seniors

While we would like to think our elderly loved ones are immune from financial exploitation, this is just not the reality. Indeed, consider that Senator Susan Collins, chair of the Senate Special Committee on Aging, recently classified financial fraud against seniors as a "growing epidemic" responsible for the loss of an estimated $2.9 billion per year.
