Elder law includes specific considerations for people as they approach their golden years. Life
has a way of moving along and one day you find yourself thinking about your future care. Our firm has
the expertise to help guide you through those considerations. We can help you ensure where you will
live and how those costs will be covered, who will help you make important decisions about your
health and care, and how you can continue to live life the way you want to, without putting undue
burden on your family. As you plan for long-term care, it is important to keep these things in mind.
Ingersoll Firm can help you create a plan that is just right for you.
The National Elder Law Association estimates that approximately Seventy Percent (70%) of people
over the age of 60 have failed to establish any form of long-term care plan. However, if simple
preventative steps are taken by planning then disaster can be avoided.
Power of Attorney and Health Care Power of Attorney
These simple documents will appoint an agent to act on your behalf when suffering from
incapacitation or incompetence. If no Power of Attorney exists then the only option left in making
decisions is through guardianship. Guardianship is a court governed procedure which is costly,
time consuming, and a difficult and humbling task wherein family members must testify to a loved
one's incompetency in a public hearing.
Wills and Trusts
Planning carefully also means establishing Wills and/or Trusts which distributes property to family
with little loss of assets due to taxes, probate, or Medicaid Recovery payments to the state.
We focus our law practice in North Carolina elder law issues, and our firm
can help you plan for care in your later years.
Long-Term Care Planning is the best way to
make sure you have choices as you age.
