"Is it time for you to contact an Elder Law attorney regarding the care of your mom or dad?"
Conservatorships are only one of many possible solutions to caring for your aging parents and protecting their health and assets. Joseph McHugh, LA LAW's Elder Law Attorney understands the many aspects of aging and can help you talk to your parents and look for ways to manage their care as they need more and more assistance with every day activities. Adult children need to be observant when they visit their aging parents or other senior loved ones. Do not wait until it is too late!
Too often the deterioration of your parent's ability to do the everyday things to care for themselves will happen gradually over time. Your parent(s) may become experts at hiding these problems, so it is important for you to be on guard for certain warning signs:
Incapable to properly pay bills and manage their finances
Incapable to handle their needed nourishment, clothing or shelter
Incapable to take care of one’s physical health
Early intervention on your part can prevent serious problems from occurring. When you visit your parent(s), look for the following warning signs of a possible care crisis:
no food in the cupboards,
stacks of unopened mail,
evidence of not bathing
other signs that your parents are no longer able to properly care for themselves.
LA LAW Center Staff will help you assess your parent's physical, emotional and financial situation and suggest the best options for your parent's situation. This can range from, setting up a Power of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directive, to considering a Conservatorship, securing Government Benefits to help pay for care, such as Medi-CAL, Medicare, Veterans benefits, developing a Life Care Plan or help in choosing In Home Care Givers, Assisted Living Facility or Nursing Home.
