Other Elder Care Services We Offer
In addition to our asset protection services, Bratton Estate & Elder Care Attorneys offers other legal services that may give you peace of mind as you age. This includes:
Guardianships and Conservatorship
A conservatorship or guardianship can help you dictate or appoint a manager for your legal affairs in the event that you become incapacitated, per the Legal Information Institute (LII). We also offer services regarding the durable power of attorney.
Life Care Planning
Life care planning can prepare for your future healthcare needs should your physical or mental capacity change as you age. Life care planning may address where you will receive treatment, what accounts will pay for it, and specific illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, traumatic injuries, permanent disability, and more. Bratton Estate & Elder Care Attorneys has a registered nurse, certified dementia practitioners, and social workers on staff to assist you with your life care planning needs.
This legal tool can instruct your health care providers on your wishes for treatment if you become incapacitated. In many cases, a living will can spare your loved ones from emotionally trying situations where they must make these decisions on your behalf.
