18. Elder Care/Nursing Home Abuse

When work and childcare responsibilities, or one’s own physical limitations make it impossible to care for a parent or relation that needs assistance or medical attention, it becomes important to know something about Elder Care. This care can be for a few hours during the day or round the clock based on the needs of the individuals concerned. An attorney is useful in helping to resolve and understand Elder Care issues when it comes to planning an estate in preparation for long-term care, understanding Medi-care,Guardianship and Conservatorship, and in cases of Elder Abuse. It also intersects with the areas of probate, wills, and trusts.
