Seniors and their families face unique issues and complicated laws and regulations. The fear of losing control and running out of money can turn retirement into a time of anxiety and worry. We strive to help our aging clients maintain control and dignity as they grow older.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 70% of people over the age of 65 will need some type of long-term care. One in three seniors will develop some type of dementia. This means that estate planning is not just about planning for death or a short-term period of incapacity. Seniors must consider issues such as asset protection, long-term care, taxes, special needs planning, and planning for a substitute decision-maker during periods of incapacity. Unfortunately, many seniors’ estate plans are not tailored for their actual needs. There are a number of tools that we can use to protect you and your family.
