Elder Law and the Long Term Care Crisis

By Rick Law of Law Elderlaw.  Providing Seniors and retirees with experienced planning and legal support in West suburban Aurora, Illinois Dementia and chronic illness can be one of the most devastating experiences a family can face.  I have experienced that devastation and responded to it by founding Law Elder Law, a firm dedicated to helping victims’ families not only cope with their grief and confusion, but discover how they can save the assets their loved one has worked a lifetime to achieve.  I’ve seen the incredible burden that is borne not only by the families of my clients, but in my family as well. I’ve watched as family members have exhausted their own health and emotional resources by being sacrificial caregivers.  This sacrifice is a major motivator that has caused me to develop the services and systems of Law Elder Law. We are dedicated to protecting and serving the elderly and those who love them. There are countless lawyers who can help you draw up a will and other papers to tell the courts what to do with your assets when you die.  Just about anyone who has passed the bar exam can write you up a “Death Plan.”  But there are very few who focus on just how to give you or your loved one a “Life Plan.”  What Law Elder Law specializes in is not just how to divvy out your assets when you’re gone, but how to make sure those assets remain intact while you are alive so you have a legacy to leave to your loved ones.   With the cost of nursing home care in Illinois averaging $6,000 per month, a lifetime of savings can be wiped out in a matter of months.  Law Elder Law works to protect your assets, legally, and assure you that you will not be left out of money, out of options, and robbed of dignity. You don’t have to outlive your money or your assets. I have organized Law Elder Law to provide the answers that “throw a lifeline” to individuals in danger of sinking under the weight of a long-term nursing care burden, or those who want to make sure they are never faced with that crisis situation.
