Elder Care Legal Services

Guardianship and Conservatorship

There often comes a time for most individuals when they require assistance making both monetary and non-monetary decisions that affect their physical and financial well-being. You or your parent may be unable to make important decisions on these matters due to injury, illness, or disability. In these instances, the Court may appoint someone to make these decisions on behalf of you or your parent.

Navigating this landscape alone can feel overwhelming. However, a skilled elder law attorney can help streamline the legal process and proceedings associated with guardianship and conservatorship, making it far less stressful and burdensome. As a full-service elder law firm, our team is happy to help you with all aspects of guardianship and conservatorship. Additionally, we are here to help you explore alternatives to guardianship, including creating incapacity plans or drawing up power of attorney documents as needed.

Probate

No one likes thinking about a time when they are gone and unable to manage or distribute their estate and finances. While a well-written will can help ensure that your estate is handled as you wish after your passing, working with an experienced probate attorney is the best way to help your family members settle remaining debts and distribute your assets accurately and efficiently.

Here at Robert M. Goldberg & Associates, our team can help advise your executor on several tasks including managing life insurance payments, appraising real estate and personal property, and determining if any taxes are owed. These are just a few of the ways in which we can help your executor manage your estate after you pass. Only you can decide if you, your family, and your estate could benefit from working with a probate attorney, but meeting with one for a consultation is always a good place to start.

Medicaid Planning

Did you know that you may be eligible for Medicaid coverage as an elderly individual, or that your parents may be eligible for low-cost care through this government-funded health care program? It is true — Medicaid coverage is not only available to low-income families, pregnant women, and individuals with disabilities. It is available to the elderly as well and an experienced elder law attorney can help you with all aspects of Medicaid planning.

Robert M. Goldberg & Associates can not only help you determine your Medicaid eligibility, but we can also help you preserve your assets to achieve Medicaid eligibility faster. We have the knowledge and experience needed to help you explore your options when it comes to protecting assets for both yourself and your loved ones. Reach out to us today to learn more about how our elder care attorney can help you secure Medicaid coverage.

Veterans Benefits

As someone who has given their all in the name of serving our country, you or your loved one deserves the best benefits and assistance available. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to know what your benefits and assistance options are. Beyond that, filling out the paperwork and applications needed to pursue them can be time-consuming and cumbersome.

The process can be streamlined with the help of an elder law attorney who is well-versed in veteran affairs. Robert M. Goldberg & Associates is happy to evaluate your service record, income, and family’s circumstances to determine which benefits you have access too and how much they will cost. Don’t wait a moment longer to take advantage of the benefits available to you.

Hospice Care

It is never easy to think about end-of-life care for yourself or a loved one. However, hospice care is available to help ensure an individual’s care and comfort as they reach the end of their days. As you research hospice care, you’ll notice that there are a variety of hospice services available to aid in this transition. These include medical and nursing care, help with activities of daily living, counseling services, and medication management. Working with our elder law attorney can help you make educated decisions on the matter.

Our team can help you understand which services might best serve the needs of you or your loved one. We can also help you understand how any applicable personal insurance or Medicare contributes to hospice care. It is never too early to start planning for the future and Robert M. Goldberg & Associates are here to help you every step of the way.
