Elder Care In North Carolina
As health care costs continue to rise and people live longer, Elder Law, or Elder Care, is an area of practice that is becoming much more prevalent. Families have lots of questions – “Where will my loved one live?”, “How much will it cost?”, “Will their estate cover all the upcoming costs?”
Wilson Ratledge will work with financial and insurance advisors, caregivers and health care professionals to analyze your needs and the most effective method of meeting those needs. This can include the preparation of trusts, advance directives, powers of attorney, and other documents that can help with asset preservation and maintenance of each quality of life.
What To Expect
During the initial consultation, the team at Wilson Ratledge will find out what existing estate planning documents your family member has in place. They will also help you understand the various legal roles. Estate planning documents should provide clear instruction for medical care and financial matters. The team can help explain these documents and how you fit in the process.
If your loved one has become incapacitated without the necessary documents or protection in place, we can assist you in arranging professional assistance to coordinate finances or care, so your family can focus on being together during the transition.
