Elder Care and Elder Planning

Planning for the elderly years of life enables you to have peace of mind and provides clear directions for your family members as your life changes. If your physical or mental independence deteriorates, a well-developed elder care plan can be an invaluable tool.

Elder care planning involves considering items such as:

  • Living expenses
  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Powers of attorney documents
  • Conservatorships for Elderly

Sometimes it becomes necessary for someone to care for another person and handle all aspects of daily life. Who that caregiver is can be a difficult matter to resolve. In fact, it may involve going to an Ohio probate court where a judge determines conservatorship. This means the probate judge will appoint an individual (conservator) to care for another person (conservatee).

We represent clients who are applicants or prospective wards in probate court filings and probate litigation.
