Protecting Vulnerable Adults Through Estate Planning
We’re often asked by clients how they can protect themselves, or their aging loved ones, from potential abuse or exploitation as they continue to age and become more vulnerable.
Our answer is that it is important to work with an Elder Law Attorney to make sure that essential Estate Planning documents are in place that detail their wishes regarding financial and medical decisions, and that it is especially important that they clearly communicate their financial information and intentions for their assets and income during their lifetime, with their Elder Law Attorney and trusted individuals to serve in important roles such as Health Care Surrogate and Power of Attorney.
As Elder Law Attorneys we use all of this information to create a holistic and comprehensive Estate Plan that includes tools such as Wills, Trusts, and Advance Directives to ensure that your wishes are adhered to, that you have a support team in place, and that regular Estate Planning reviews, updates, and attorney meetings are scheduled to help prevent the possibility of senior isolation and elder abuse.
If you need help creating an Estate Plan to help protect yourself or a loved one, please do not delay and set an appointment with one of our knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring Elder Law Attorneys.
