I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. It may sound like an infomercial cliché, but it’s a horror story that often takes families by surprise.
Julia Keck Price understands it well. She lived it. “I stopped by to visit my 89-year-old grandmother one day and she didn’t come to the door,” said Price, a Life Care Planning Attorney at Elder Law of East Tennessee, a Life Care Planning Law Firm in Knoxville. “Turns out that she had fallen and had been laying there for several days.”
Price’s nightmare occurred just as she was beginning her career as an elder law attorney.
