At Mall Malisow & Cooney, P.C., we call our unique, holistic approach to elder law issues ElderCare℠ Legal Planning. Our legal team works in tandem with a network of professionals to ensure individuality, respect, dignity, independence, and the highest possible quality of life for elderly individuals.
Getting the Help You Need
As people age, the likelihood that they will need medical assistance, personal care, or other arrangements increases. The loss of control and independence that comes with these changes can cause problems within families. Our ElderCare legal team can provide resources and support, and even mediate family differences concerning decisions for care.
ElderCare Legal Planning
Our Elder Law professionals seek to help families develop a flexible plan for quality of care and asset management so the wishes of you or your elderly loved one are followed in every circumstance. A solid set of directives provide peace of mind to family members when difficult decisions must be made.
ElderCare Legal Planning has two primary goals:
- Quality of Life and Care
- Preserving and Protecting your Assets
Legal instruments used to accomplish these goals include:
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Medical Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills / Advance Directives
In addition, our ElderCare professionals can provide advice and assistance to family members or individuals who have been appointed by the Probate Court to act as Guardian and Conservator in the interests of a loved one.
Your responsibilities do not stop when a loved one is placed in a care facility, nor do ours. Our ElderCare legal team can also assist you by attending care planning meetings, advising in the development of a suitable care plan, and ensuring the specific attributes of the care plan are properly carried out.
Care Advocacy can include:
- A comprehensive Geriatric Care Assessment
- Identifying strategies to provide the highest possible quality of care
- Review of all contracts and arrangements for care
- Advising clients at care planning/review meetings
