Elder Law

Elder Law involves planning for the complex health care, long-term care, and other issues facing elderly and disabled individuals and their families. It is best to do it when a family or loved one is not in crisis.

Clients are sometimes under the mistaken impression that there is nothing that can be done to protect their assets from the high cost of assisted living or nursing home care. Often, however, Young & Young Attorneys can help you protect many of the assets you have spent a lifetime accumulating to provide an inheritance for surviving family members according to your wishes.

We encourage our clients to visit with a long-term care insurance specialist. If you already have insurance, we can help you feel confident in what your policy covers and your deductibles. We can help you understand your Medicaid eligibility, your options, and the rules and issues that may apply to your situation.
