Your Partner in Estate Planning and Long-Term Care

Discussing the legal aspects of aging is not something people eagerly engage in. This hesitation often leads individuals to postpone estate planning until it becomes too late to take action. However, it is crucial to proactively manage your future before a court intervention becomes necessary for your protection.

Keystone Elder Law, P.C. is a dedicated team of professional Harrisburg elder law attorneys. We offer legal guidance and support to Pennsylvania elders and their families, addressing the various challenges that arise as individuals age and face additional health and financial complexities. Our mission is to safeguard you and your family, and we invite you to sit down with us to discuss your situation and explore how we can assist you.

Comprehensive Elder Law Services for South Central Pennsylvania Residents

Elder law encompasses a wide range of issues that are relevant to Harrisburg seniors and adults caring for elderly parents who may no longer be able to care for themselves. Some of the common areas we address include:

  • Long-Term Care Planning: At some point, many of us may require nursing home or long-term care services. Since these options can be expensive, it is essential to develop a plan to finance such care when the need arises.
  • Asset Protection and Medicaid: For many Harrisburg seniors, Medicaid becomes the solution for funding nursing home care. However, strict financial requirements imposed by Medicaid can lead to crisis situations. You may suddenly face the need to “spend down” assets or establish a trust to meet or maintain your Medicaid eligibility. We can provide guidance and support throughout this process.
  • Estate Planning: Estate planning involves more than just drafting a will, although that is a crucial part of it. A comprehensive estate plan includes documents that address contingencies that may arise during your lifetime. It is essential to have a power of attorney, a health care directive, and a living will as part of your estate plan.
  • Guardianships and Conservatorships: If you have an elderly parent or relative who is no longer capable of making their own decisions, such as due to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, seeking a court-ordered guardianship or conservatorship may be necessary. This allows you to take charge of their personal or financial affairs.

Keystone Elder Law

At Keystone Elder Law, we believe that the physical, social, legal, and financial considerations of our clients all intertwine. We utilize an interdisciplinary approach to evaluate each area, which allows for the creation of a plan that addresses the concerns of the individual as a whole as well as the family. To this end, our model of practice includes a Care Coordinator (usually a nurse or social worker), whose expertise complements our team of attorneys.

When the road of life is smooth, decisions about legal and financial matters are easy to push aside for “a rainy day.” Planning ahead, however, will allow for more options as you view the map of where you’ve been and where you want to go. Don’t let a crisis limit your choices or derail your plans.
