Estate planning: protecting your parents

Adult children of elderly parents often face a dilemma: In order to qualify their parents for Medicaid and in-home care, their parents’ assets must be depleted, or spent down. As a result, many elderly Americans are faced with a choice — forego needed health care or lose their home. An experienced estate-planning lawyer, however, can explore strategies for transferring money, re-allocating assets or creating income-distribution pools to help elderly people qualify for Medicaid without becoming impoverished.

And, when competency or undue influence is a concern, your lawyer can help you establish a guardianship or powers of attorney to protect your loved ones from those who might take advantage of them.
