North Carolina Elder Law
Elder law is a specialty area of the law that focuses on the needs of the elderly.
There are many issues for which an elderly person might need an elder law attorney. Medicare, Medicaid and asset protection planning, Veterans Benefits, long-term and nursing home care, disability planning, payment for health care, Social Security and retirement planning, durable power of attorneys for health care, living wills to facilitate the end of life decisions, and general estate planning through wills and trusts.
Elder law is often misunderstood. It’s not something only the elderly should be concerned about. The cost and effects of caring for seniors can impact subsequent generations. For example, family legacies can be swallowed up to pay for a grandfather’s retirement home bills, and the inheritance that was once expected will more than likely be gone.
