Customized Elder Care For Your Evolving Needs

As you age, it’s crucial to have an elder care plan in place as part of your comprehensive estate plan. Lawyer Thomas Rossmeissl of the Law Office of Thomas E. Rossmeissl ensures clients are prepared for the unknown by safeguarding their wishes and assets if they become incapacitated or unable to make decisions.

The Essential Elements Of Elder Care Planning

The Law Office of Thomas E. Rossmeissl guides clients through implementing several key elements to prepare for potential incapacity:

Advance Health Care Directives

An advance health care directive allows you to appoint an agent to make medical decisions on your behalf if you can’t. It’s also vital for documenting your healthcare preferences, such as end-of-life wishes. Attorney Thomas can guide you through this complex process.

Powers Of Attorney

A financial power of attorney lets you name someone to manage your assets and finances if you become incapacitated. A medical power of attorney appoints an agent for healthcare decisions. Choosing the right, trusted person is key – attorney Thomas can advise clients on this decision-making based on decades of experience.

Conservatorships

If you become incapacitated without a plan, the court may need to appoint a conservator. A conservator of the person handles personal/health care matters, while a conservator of the estate manages finances/assets. Proper planning with attorney Thomas’ help can avoid this cumbersome process.

Long-Term Care Planning

None of us know if we’ll eventually need assisted living, nursing home care or in-home assistance. Lawyer Thomas will work to ensure clients qualify for benefits like Medicaid if needed, protecting their life savings. He can also help create special needs trusts for dependents.
