Elder Law’s Most Frequently Asked Questions: How Can I Find Resources In The Community?

By Rick Law, Senior Advocate and Elder Law Attorney In Aurora, Illinois

As attorneys who work closely with the senior community, we can connect you with resources that may help you in your specific situations.

We’re constantly connecting with people, organizations, and tools in the community that can get  help to you, fast. Over the years, we’ve forged strong relationships with folks connected to seniors- local medical professionals, senior care facilities, and everything from help with transportation to the hospital or to church, to social workers who can help you manage your overall affairs.  This might mean meals on wheels, or folks who help you keep your head on your shoulders and keep your body fit, too!

Just a few of the programs and places we have relationships with are:

  • your local ombudsman
  • Senior Services
  • Hospitals close to you
  • Meal delivery programs
  • Transportation programs
  • Support groups for caregivers
  • Nursing homes, Assisted Living facilities, and Retirement Living in Chicagoland that we’ve vetted and can recommend.  We can help you find which place might be the best fit for your family

Trying to grow old with dignity is what everyone strives to do.  We as elder law attorneys have a unique place in the Elder Care Journey, and we can share our hard earned wisdom regarding long term care and the associated resources in the community with you.

Our Reviews

“We would be lost without Law Elder Law! We walked in their doors over a year ago feeling lost and confused. With a father/father-in-law suffering from Alzheimer’s, we were overwhelmed by the Medicaid process, selling his home, protecting the assets he worked for his entire life, and finding him a memory-care facility that we could trust as his new home. 

Law Elder Law helped with all of it! From the minute we walked out of our first meeting, we knew we (and he) were in good hands. We could not have possibly navigated all that had to be done without their expertise.”
