Medical Directives Designate Someone to Carry out Your Wishes

There are a number of legal documents that allow your aging parent to formalize his or her wishes in the event they are incapacitated. These are known as medical directives.
First, we recommend your parent designates someone to make health care decisions for him or her.

Another consideration is the decision about life-sustaining treatment if terminally ill or in a coma. Legalize this choice in a document known as an Advanced Health Directive or a Living Will. With a living will, you have chosen someone to make this decision for you. Otherwise, it is up to the family and then the hospital, which would opt to continue such treatment.

Long Term Care Attorney: What about Financing?

Your elderly parent might require special living arrangements that serve the needs of the physically or mentally infirmed. Count on a long term care attorney from our firm to explain the options, the costs, and methods of financing such care.

Long term care options include care at home or in a facility. That facility could be part of a continuing care retirement community. Such communities have a range of services for different levels of care.

Long term care can be costly and it is not usually covered by Medicare. There are government programs that can help, as well as special insurance. Request a consultation with one of our attorneys for information about obtaining long term care.
