Far too many people believe creating an estate plan is just for the wealthy. The fact is, everyone should have a comprehensive estate plan in place and should get help with Medi-Cal planning to protect their assets.
For Caregivers: The job of caring for someone with a physical or mental disability, such as Alzheimer’s disease, is one of the biggest challenges you will ever face. Often, caregivers put their needs on the back-burner, which leads to quickly becoming overwhelmed. Although caring for an aging loved one can be extremely difficult, there are tools available to help caregivers make the right decisions while also taking care of themselves, and an experienced attorney can help you to access those tools through proper legal planning.
The Schomer Law Group offers comprehensive, affordable estate planning so you have control over your own future. Whether you have millions in the bank or a small nest egg, our experienced and compassionate elder law attorneys have the knowledge to guide you through the creation of a comprehensive estate plan.
Estate planning is something everyone should be thinking about, regardless of the stage they are at in life. It’s essential for allowing you to make your own choices for those times when you will be unable to speak for yourself, and there’s no better time to prepare for tomorrow than today.
Coping With Alzheimer’s
If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s (or is exhibiting symptoms, such as memory loss), the most common response is to worry. Alzheimer’s disease leads to a number of life adjustments, including the need to make a wide range of decisions that pose possible legal consequences. Once you’ve been diagnosed, the ability to manage your own affairs will decrease over time, so early legal planning is essential. Making adequate, informed decisions about personal, business, and health care will become more difficult, however, there is information and help to ease your concerns and put you in the driver’s seat, and the knowledgeable attorneys at the Schomer Law Group can help.
Incapacity planning involves making decisions in advance of a physical or mental disability where you are unable to take care of yourself. In your plan, you state your wishes regarding how you will be cared for and you give somebody else, such as a spouse or adult child, the power to make financial and health care decisions on your behalf. What will you do if you or a loved one becomes disabled? Do you have a plan of action in place?
