Elder law covers the legal and practical issues that affect senior citizens. It inherently focuses on the needs of the elderly. However, their issues would need to reach the attendance of the elders’ family members, friends, and caretakers as well. Although elder law may approach various elder-related issues, some of the common ones involve; healthcare, elder abuse, end-of-life, estate planning, and guardianship arrangement.
The elder law also helps the seniors to minimize the estate tax and care options. The elders could appoint a family member or relatives to handle their healthcare and financial matters by providing the power of attorney prior to their incapacity.
As elder abuse is often an overlooked issue, elder law exists to diminish it. For instance, the elderly have a right to dignity and privacy when residing in nursing homes, and some states give elderly residents the right to choose their own physicians.
Elder Law Attorney
An attorney or a lawyer specializing in elder law can aid an elderly family member in making financial decisions and healthcare choices. Not only that, they can help to ensure the correct medical treatment and end-of-life decisions are made in agreement with the elder’s decision. Additionally, an elder law attorney can clarify the rights that the elder has in the country they are living in and ultimately act as a supporting consultant for the senior and their family members.
