Foster Swift offers legal resources for seniors, caregivers

May is National Elder Law Month and attorneys across the country, including those at Foster Swift, continue to educate seniors in their communities about legal options as well as placing an emphasis on the importance of making sure they have committed their plans in a legally binding format.

Foster Swift created an Elder Law Resources landing page, frequently updated with links to videos, articles and podcasts on topics such as spotting red flags of elder abuse and how employers can support employees that are taking care of elderly family members (fosterswift.com/f-elder-law-month.html).                                                                             

Also featured is a link to the firm’s elder law blog (mielderlawblog.com), free downloadable tools  to assist caregivers, and a copy of Estate Planning: You Have to Start in Order to Finish, a free e-book written by Foster Swift attorney Jonathan David. This recently updated book is presented in a Q&A format on estate planning topics such as “Setting up a trust for children” and “What estate planning documents do you need..

“Aging Americans and their families need to be both proactive and responsive to navigating issues that include Medicaid planning, long-term care arrangements, financial scams and fraud targeting seniors, and workplace issues for adult children who are caring for their parents,” says elder law attorney Matt Fedor. “Keeping friends and clients educated on their options is essential in preparing them for what lies ahead. You should reach out to an elder law attorney to help you develop a plan before an emergency eliminates some of your options.”
