When a person reaches retirement age, there are many issues that may arise that require legal assistance. Estate planning, decisions regarding end-of-life care, Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security benefit matters, and guardianship issues can all require experienced legal representation to protect and enforce the rights of the elderly, which is where an elder law attorney is critical. At Kryszak & Associates, our knowledgeable Wellington elder law attorneys are here to zealously advocate on your behalf or on behalf of your elderly loved ones. To learn more, call or contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
Estate planning empowers a person to make decisions regarding the distribution of their estate after their passing and provides security to their loved ones after that person is gone. Our office assists in the drafting of wills, trusts, power of attorney forms, and other estate planning documents so that our elderly clients can create comprehensive plans for their estates. Our elder law attorneys also ensure that an estate plan is created properly without procedural error or other issues that can lead to will and estate plan contests during the probate process.
Kryszak & Associates provides representation and legal advice for end-of-life decisions through the use of living wills and healthcare proxy forms. These legal documents dictate a person’s decisions regarding all aspects of medical treatment and care, including the use of certain medications, surgeries, feeding tubes, respirators, Do Not Resuscitate forms, palliative care, and more. It can also identify a trusted loved one to make medical decisions on a person’s behalf if they become unable to do so themselves.
Our dedicated elder law attorneys represent clients with Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security benefit claims. These programs can be notoriously difficult to navigate and often deny benefits to elders that rightfully deserve them. Having legal representation for Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security claims often expedites the process and ensures that the best possible arguments are being made for the benefits owed to the elderly.
Also known as conservatorship, guardianship in Ohio is sometimes required for the elderly when they are no longer able to care for themselves. A guardian appointed by the court takes on certain responsibilities and duties on behalf of the elder in their care, including dispensing medications, maintaining hygiene, and managing the elder’s finances. Applying for conservatorship can be a complex and lengthy process, but an experienced elder law attorney can advocate for what is best for the elder in your life.
