Johnson Teigen Highlights Elder Law in May

Elder law is a specialized practice area of Johnson Teigen, LLC, and May is National Elder Law Month.  The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys provides support and resources to attorneys, clients, and the general public for all aspects of elder law.

Johnson Teigen highlights Elder Law Month with the following suggestions and services:

  • Plan for independence–we can advise you about planning for long-term care, retirement, and taxes.  Often, we work with your existing team of support, such as family members and financial professionals.  We can help you understand your options and devise a plan for your ongoing personal and financial independence.
  • Plan for health care–it cannot be overstated that every competent adult should have health care advance directives.  You can prepare health care power of attorney and living will documents to express your wishes and select someone to speak for you if you become incapacitated.  See our firm’s guide for understanding and planning for your advance directives.
  • Plan in a long-term care crisis–if you or someone you love needs long-term care, we can help you understand your options for dealing with the personal and financial aspects involved.  Long-term care can involve numerous components–financial, medical, and legal.  We can advise regarding Medicaid planning, providing for a spouse at home, and guardianships.
