With great advancements in health care over the last couple decades, life expectancy has risen significantly. Couple that with the baby boomer generation advancing in age, and the senior population (65+) is currently at around 35 million and is expected to double in the next 25 years. Furthermore, the population of those 85 years or older is the fastest growing segment in the country.1
As Americans age, their legal needs change. At Bryan A Lowe & Associates, our elder law attorneys help seniors, and those who care for them, establish workable estate and long term health care plans. Often planning for an immediate or future need for long term care involves legal guidance and representation in matters of guardianship and Medicaid eligibility. Legal documents such as durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, and living wills, help seniors ensure that difficult decisions can be made at critical moments.
Let our firm help you create a plan that provides you with quality health care, protection of valuable assets, and ensure that you or your family members will qualify for Medicaid if and when the need arises.
