Your Partner in Navigating the Legal Challenges of Aging

As we age, we are not only confronted with additional medical issues but also a variety of unique legal matters. In Pennsylvania, the intersection of legal and medical issues is particularly prevalent among the elderly. At Keystone Elder Law, P.C., we specialize in guiding you through the legal aspects of aging. Our team of skilled and compassionate Hershey elder law attorneys serves clients throughout South Central Pennsylvania. We offer comprehensive services that go beyond estate planning, addressing a wide range of legal and financial concerns related to long-term care and asset preservation.

Expert Assistance in Estate and Long-Term Care Planning

One of the primary concerns faced by our elder law clients is determining where they will spend their later years. While some individuals prefer to remain in their own homes, others may opt for assisted living or full-time nursing care. Regardless of the chosen option, the question of how to finance it always arises. This is why it is crucial to work with a Hershey elder law attorney who can assess your overall financial situation and help plan for the future.

For instance, if you or an elderly parent requires nursing home care, it is essential to evaluate your assets and financial planning. Many seniors rely on Medicaid to cover their nursing care expenses. However, Medicaid imposes strict limits on the total assets a beneficiary can own while maintaining eligibility. In order to meet these requirements, it may be necessary to establish asset protection plans.

Even if you do not anticipate utilizing Medicaid, it is still vital to address fundamental questions concerning the financing of your long-term care needs. We can provide guidance in answering these questions and ensure that your basic estate plan is in order. This includes drafting a will, establishing a power of attorney, and creating a living will. Additionally, if you have an elderly parent or relative who is no longer capable of making their own decisions, we can advocate for you in seeking a guardianship or conservatorship to protect their interests.

The Importance of Engaging a Hershey Elder Law Attorney

Estate and long-term care planning should not be viewed as DIY projects. Even basic estate planning involves intricate legal principles that require professional advice and assistance. By working with a qualified Hershey elder law attorney, you can ensure that all your actions are legally sound and will withstand scrutiny.

Keystone Elder Law, P.C., has a proven track record in helping Pennsylvania seniors plan for retirement and beyond. Let us discuss your unique circumstances and how our services can support you. Contact us today to schedule a no-obligation consultation and take the first step towards securing your future.

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.
