Elder Law is more than ramped up Estate Planning. Elder Law involves a holistic approach to how you want to spend the remainder of your days and what you want to leave behind. The key place to start is to think of the quality of life you want to have as you retire and advance in years. What decision can you make now to avoid burdening others later in life? Do you want your family to take care of your or do you want to go to a facility? How are you going to pay for long-term healthcare? An Elder Law attorney involves insurance agents, financial planners, and key family members if necessary to make sure your desires are understood and you are taken care of. In many ways an Elder Law attorney is a retirement coordinator who documents your desires.
