Elder Law Help

Too often, family members feel alone and overwhelmed when making financial, legal, and health care decisions on behalf of an aging loved one. But this needn't be the case. While planning for the well-being of an elder may be difficult and uncomfortable, there's help available for people who need guidance and peace of mind. A qualified elder law attorney can help with a wide range of legal matters affecting you and your loved one, such as helping you create a durable power of attorney, discussing the importance of wills and estate planning, and providing help with health care and long-term care planning. This section includes information and resources for finding an experienced elder law attorney as well as a list of both national and local agencies for the elderly.

If you do not have a living will or last will and testament, you can create them with DIY forms.
