Elder Law

We all aim for a long and prosperous life, complete with financial security and good health. In our golden years, we can hopefully enjoy leisurely retirement while finding new pursuits outside of work. But, as we get older, we may face issues with our health, such as decreasing mobility and mental clarity.

Further, having enough money for retirement is never guaranteed and individuals with a fixed income may face a number of potential challenges. FindLaw's Elder Law section covers a wide range of legal matters unique to aging and elderly Americans, such as long-term care options and elder abuse.
