Planning for the Care of Aging Loved Ones

Elder law is a catch-all term for the legal issues that are important to the care of aging Americans. At the Law Offices of Kathleen Fowler, LLC – in Cape Cod, Wellesley, MA, and Venice, Florida - our elder law practice operates in conjunction with our estate planning services to provide legal protection and proactive solutions for clients dealing with the health, well-being, and financial stability of elderly loved ones.

One of the primary purposes of our elder law practice is to structure financial powers of attorney and healthcare proxies in order to avoid the necessity of addressing these matters through a guardianship or conservatorship probate court procedure. Our attorneys also assist clients in other important elder matters, including:

  • Medicaid planning
  • Probate avoidance
  • Tax planning
  • Life insurance planning
  • Estate administration
  • Long-term care insurance planning
  • And more…

The lawyers at our firm take a comprehensive approach to protecting the rights and interests of our clients and their loved ones. We act as a reliable resource in addressing complex legal needs involving family businesses, real estate, pensions & other qualified plans, investments, and other matters that may impact planning for the future.

 

Maintain Control and Minimize the Risk of Court Involvement

Without a well-crafted plan that takes elder law matters into account, families run the risk of missing opportunities to provide the best, most appropriate care for aging loved ones. Without a comprehensive estate plan, families may find themselves in a situation in which the courts exercise an unnecessary degree of control over their loved one’s estate.
