Ideally everyone would be able to grow old in the home they love. Reality is far more complicated. Many people develop medical issues as they age that make it inadvisable and possibly even dangerous for them to remain at home. The risks of falls and medical emergencies are simply too great for the older adult to not have experienced, around the clock care.
Senior adults are often unwilling to even discuss the possibility of not being able to age in place. Nevertheless, it’s an important topic of conversation. Involving an attorney who is skilled with elder care planning in the early stages is always a good idea. Most people simply don’t know where to begin, and a seasoned attorney can help you ask and answer all the right questions.
If you are dealing with a parent, spouse or other family member whose health is failing, then you may find yourself in a frightening and frustrating place. You may feel as though your loved one just doesn’t hear you when you express your concerns. It may be helpful to have a tactful, knowledgeable professional working with you as you try to resolve these difficult issues.
Comprehensive elder care planning requires a solid understanding of many complex factors. An elder care planning attorney can help you discover the different types of available care facilities and which one is right for you or your loved one. Just as importantly, your lawyer can help you figure out how to pay for your future care.
