When you think of the kind of person who might need an elder law attorney, what is your first thought? For most people, what comes to mind is an older adult in crisis. A crisis starts when the person has some sort of acute medical event or accident and can no longer live safely at home. The urgent need to find a place for the older adult to live creates a financial, legal, and care-related crisis—for the older adult and the family. Life Care Planning Law Firms are well-known for their ability to guide families through this type of crisis.
