Elder Law

Caring properly for elderly loved ones is what Elder Law is all about. This area of law is designed mostly to offer protection against abuse of seniors and protection of their assets. At the Law Office of Penniann J. Schumann PLLC, clients prepare for this important aspect of life in advance through estate planning. Trust documents that create Conservatorships and Guardianships are legal documents that detail plans for estate preservation and care of elderly loved ones. The Trust creator can set up estate plans that also cover their own potential incapacity. The main objective is to provide adequate care for elderly loved ones, while conserving an estate for future heirs.

Elder Law benefits an aging population that is growing by leaps and bounds in the U.S. For example, if a person develops a debilitating disease like Alzheimer’s, a Trust will provide financial assistance and appoint a guardian or conservator to see that your loved one continues to receive good care physically and financially. This part of a Trust must be very detailed to set forth excellent plans for elder care. If a loved one is placed in a care facility, the law continues to offer protection against abuse of all kinds, including physical and financial. Your Trust must be drawn properly by an experienced Elder Law Attorney for best results in any situation.
