Attorneys Assisting Elderly Individuals

There are a number of legal issues that specifically affect older adults. At Caldwell & Kearns, P.C., we provide legal services in elder law, helping clients plan for the future, protect their assets and address health care issues.

The Estate Planning Services We Provide

Whether you are an individual planning for your future, or you are a concerned family member, Caldwell & Kearns, P.C., can help you with the following:

  • Estate planning guidance — We can help you plan for the future through wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives and other estate planning tools.
  • Guardianships — Assigning a guardianship is a court process in which one individual is given the legal authority to act on behalf of another. A guardian may be responsible for day-to-day living issues, wealth and financial protection, health care issues and more.
  • Disability planning — A number of issues can be addressed in disability planning, including Medicaid eligibility, nursing care, the use of assistive devices and more.
  • Medicaid planning — We can discuss ways of protecting your assets while maintaining eligibility for Medicaid and other benefits.

Today you may be healthy and have little concern about the distant future. However, if the day comes when you become unable to care for yourself, unable to make decisions on your own or become disabled, preplanning can be invaluable.

Our firm's attorneys can explain your options for protecting your future and your family. We have experience working with various agencies that deal directly with elder law issues.
