Protect & Manage the Financial Assets of a Loved One Who Can No Longer Do It For Themselves
When Someone You Care About Is Mentally Incapacitated, It Can Feel Devastating. When We Can, We Work With Our Clients To Avoid The Legal Remedy Known As Guardianship.
Avoiding guardianship altogether should be one of your greatest motivators to see us for an adequate estate plan, so that your family will be spared the grief of going to court to have you declared incompetent. A court-appointed guardianship protects an incapacitated individual with a protective legal arrangement. Usually, guardianships are used on to protect older adults who have lost mental capacity due to senile dementia, major strokes, severe mental illness, or other conditions.
“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.”
