Law Firm Representing Elder Clients and Their Families Through Stressful Times

Both our elderly clients and their children are often worried about whether they will run out of money. Many of our elder clients want to stay in their homes for as long as possible, while their children are usually concerned about how they are going to manage their parents' lives while managing their own obligations.

At Silicon Valley Elder Law, PC, our lawyers understand that this is a confusing time for you and your family. Our San Jose elder law attorneys provide intelligent solutions for our California clients. We will take the time to listen to your concerns and help you find estate planning and disability solutions that will meet your unique needs.

Care Planning

In terms of advance health care directives, powers of attorney and other agency declarations, it is always best to handle these well in advanced with a fully integrated estate plan. However, in many cases, elderly family members will suddenly fall into injury or incapacity without adequate preparations. In these cases, we create a plan of care that will help our clients:

  • Update the estate plan: We look at our clients' financial state and every aspect of their current estate plan. Health insurance is. might quality or need to qualify or have to quality.
  • Access provisions for the costs of care: Through health insurance, creative ways of accessing equity, living circumstances and public resources, we can help you find the best approach for providing for end-of-life care.
  • Finding available community resources: It might be essential for you to obtain assistance through Meals On Wheels, discounted transportation resources, churches, children and other family members who are willing to step in to help out. We will help you understand how these decisions will impact your estate plan.

Disability Law Representation

We take many cases that involve surprising disability situations. The children of an elderly parent are concerned about the elder's compromised medical situation, like Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease. We work with the family to put together a care plan for the elderly parent. Often this involves:

  • Conservatorship of the estate: This involves declaring that the elderly person is unable to handle the financial management of the estate alone, and declaring an agent to handle these matters.
  • Special needs trust: This is a trust set aside to provide for the costs associated with the beneficiary's special medical care requirements.

We are well versed in the sophisticated transfers, trusts and contracts that can help protect your family's assets and preserve as much of the available wealth as possible.
