Planning for Medical and Personal Care
Even as loved ones begin to enter the later years of life, they still look to preserve their autonomy and independence. With the correct legal structures in place, the elderly can indeed maintain their quality of life along with their financial resources.
Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer offers compassionate, understanding guidance in all areas of elder law in Louisiana and Alabama. Our attorneys address legal and financial issues surrounding long-term care, whether it’s provided at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. We develop wills and trusts to make sure assets are protected from onerous medical bills and distributed fairly to descendants. Other services include advance directives, which offer a pre-determined set of medical and financial guidelines confirming who you desire to make such decisions for you if you become incapacitated. On some occasions, the legal system must step in when someone is no longer able to make wise decisions or has become the victim of elder abuse or financial exploitation. We can be there with you to guide your family through that difficult process.
As demographic trends continue to an older population, the legal problems of the elderly will take even greater prominence at every income level. Attorneys at BHBM help clients who are still in the peak of their careers plan for Medicaid costs and long-term care so they can live their golden years in comfort and security. For parents with special-needs children, BHBM creates trusts and other legal structures to make sure they will be well cared for throughout their lives as well.
