What is Elder Law?
Elder Law is a specialty of law that caters to the unique needs of older clients, and those with long-term illnesses (Alzheimer's, dementia, etc.). Elder Law encompasses:
- Specialized estate planning strategies (such as the Medi-Cal Asset Protection Trust).
- Determining the right care based on the illness (see more about our Life Care Planning Service).
- Planning for ways to pay for that needed long-term care without going bankrupt.
What is Life Care Planning?
Are you overwhelmed with the demands of a loved one's care?
Whether you are caring for your loved one in the home, scrambling to make arrangements for nursing home care or trying to make sure nothing goes wrong in the nursing home, you know how difficult, time-consuming and isolating caregiving can be.
Imagine what life would be like if you have a team of advisors helping you get the right care, preserve family resources and make difficult decisions.
That's what life is like when you have a Life Care Plan.
Our Elder Care Coordinator (an experienced RN specializing in geriatric care managment) can create a Life Care Plan that helps you respond to every challenge created by the long-term illness or disability of your elderly loved one before, during, and after the onset of declining health. Customized for your elderly loved one's situation, a Life Care Plan bundles the right combination of care coordination, family education, patient advocacy and crisis intervention services into a convenient package.

So when I went to law school, it was an easy decision as to what my specialty would be: elder law & estate planning.
