What Is Elder Law?
There is no one piece of law that governs all elder care issues. It is not a specific code or legislation. The legal realities faced by older Americans seeking long-term housing and dignity are a web of intricate and complex laws. It takes legal experience to get through this with confidence.
I am Steve Wilson, and at my firm, Steve Wilson Law Office, I provide clients with all the information they need to make smart decisions about elder law. My clients are seniors and their children across Minneapolis who need help navigating Minnesota’s elder law landscape. I’m here to listen and to help you secure the legal realities ahead of you.
From Housing To Health Care
Because of my personal experience with elder law, I can tell you exactly how complicated the legal realities ahead truly are. The issues that face you and your family include:
- Medicare and Medicaid planning
- Nursing home and long-term care planning
- End-of-life planning
- Health care proxies and living wills
- Asset protection
These are all interrelated fields, as a choice in one area can unintentionally impact another. For example, a health care proxy who is not fulfilling an end-of-life plan. Or your asset protections not coming into effect in time for you to need placement in a nursing home, putting your entire home at risk.
