Keystone Elder Law, P.C. is dedicated to assisting elderly residents of Cumberland County and their families.

Even if you simply have questions about where to begin, we offer a no-obligation private consultation to address your concerns.

Comprehensive Elder Law Services for South Central Pennsylvania Residents

Elder law encompasses a wide range of legal matters directly affecting Shiremanstown seniors and their families. Many of these issues are complex and require the expertise of a skilled legal professional. We assist clients in various areas, including:

  • Estate Planning: Have you created a will? If not, now is the time. However, estate planning extends beyond a will. A comprehensive estate plan should include a power of attorney, a health care directive, and a living will to safeguard your interests while you are alive.
  • Medicaid and Long-Term Care Planning: As more Shiremanstown elders require costly nursing home care in their later years, Medicaid can provide financial assistance. However, careful planning is necessary to protect your assets, as Medicaid imposes strict regulations on the amount of property you can retain while receiving nursing home benefits.
  • Guardianships: In the absence of a valid power of attorney, a court may need to appoint a guardian or conservator for an incapacitated elder. This individual will be authorized to make important personal and financial decisions on their behalf.
  • Estate and Trust Administration: Many Shiremanstown elders seek to ensure their wealth is distributed responsibly and efficiently, minimizing potential tax and probate complications. We can provide guidance on various estate and trust administration strategies.

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.
