Elder Care Law Services

Elder care planning is done in writing and in advance of a health care crisis. The purpose of carefully drafted documents is to better serve you in the event of an illness or disability. Proper planning requires others to honor your wishes and preferences.

The goal of formalizing your elder care planning is to enable you to protect your property while you are living, to avoid an emergency guardianship situation, and to preserve your dignity and privacy.

To accomplish these important objectives above, we provide you with the necessary information as follows:

  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care surrogate designations
  • Living wills
  • Preneed guardian designations
  • Preneed guardian designations for minors
  • HIPAA authorizations (medical information releases)
  • Trusts
  • Convenience accounts
  • Life settlements
  • Life care planning
  • Assisted living planning
  • Supplemental needs trusts
  • Charitable pooled trust for the aged and disabled
  • Medicaid pre-planning (not application or appeals)

As experienced Bradenton, Florida Elder Care Law Attorneys, we enjoy assisting our valued clients in planning for their future elder care needs. We do this by naming agents that you choose to step in for you, only if you are unable to make health-related and/or financial-related decisions for yourself.

Advanced elder care planning gives our clients peace of mind and ensures that their wishes are known and honored.
