What Do Elder Law Lawyers Help With?
Elder law focuses on care for the older population and the scenarios they’re likely to experience as they age. By hiring an attorney who is dedicated to elder law practice, you can be assured that they know what’s best for you and what you’re entitled to, and how to get it. Our attorneys are veterans of the practice and can help you navigate anything that you encounter with ease, including:
- Becoming eligible for Medicaid
- Managing long-term care expenses
- Appointing powers of attorney
- Handling guardianship decisions
- Making health care decisions, including naming a health care proxy
- Incapacity planning
- Creating a living will
- Income planning
- Receiving VA Pension benefits
- Drafting trusts
Our elder law lawyers will provide service tailored to your needs. Not everything listed above will be necessary in your own estate plan. Some other situations may arise. Whatever you encounter, a Marsden Law P.C. attorney will be present to help you approach the obstacle and work toward the outcome that benefits you most.
Do I Lose Rights When I Appoint a Power of Attorney?
A common misconception is that naming a power of attorney affords them all your rights. The reality is quite the opposite. By exercising your right to name a power of attorney, you control who can make decisions regarding what situation. You do not surrender any of these rights, as the power of attorney will not be the sole person deemed capable of making these decisions. While you are still able to speak for yourself, you may communicate your decisions for yourself. Having a power of attorney and relaying your wishes to them allows you to still receive your preferred care if you’re suddenly unable to communicate the decision on your own.
