Elder Law

Senior Planning

Seniors and their families often face a myriad of legal and extralegal needs such as end-of-life decisions, unexpected incapacity, public benefit eligibility, or long-term care concerns. I strive to help my aging clients preserve their assets and maintain dignity and control as they grow older. This often requires a focus on planning for incapacity, asset protection and long-term care. I also represent clients in every phase of incompetency and conservatorship proceedings.

Anyone can become disabled at any time. One of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones is to establish an estate plan. A well-designed estate plan provide for loved ones, including children or aging parents, provide for incapacity, avoid probate at death, reduce or avoid estate taxes, and provide for charitable organizations. 

We strive to provide our clients with the most protection of their resources while planning for issues that may arise as they age. We strive to assist the adult children as they may become caregivers for their parents. 

Our goal is to serve all generations of a family and to assist them in planning for the unexpected and provide them with safety and security and allowing them to access any and all resources that may be available to them so that they can have a comfortable and secure retirement. 

Conservatorship For Loved Ones Who Are Incapacitated

As with families with special needs, there may come a time that your parent or grandparent is unable to care for themselves.  Oftentimes planning for incapacity has been done in advance, however in instances where there has been no estate planning for incapacity, it may be necessary to provide your loved one with medical care or to take over care of their finances. 

Our office handles and coordinates conservatorship matters where your family member may be suffering from Alzheimer's or Dementia. /cms/site_files/vanharen/files/Patricia%20VanHaren%281%29.mp3
