Celebrating both Older Americans Month & National Elder Law Month
Celebrating older Americans during the month of May has become a longstanding tradition. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy declared May to be Senior Services Month. Every President thereafter has followed suit. However, in 1980, President Jimmy Carter changed the name to Older Americans Month. To honor and support the annual proclamation declaring May Older Americans Month, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys ("NAELA") designated the month of May as National Elder Law month.
It is, again, our privilege during this month and beyond to celebrate older Americans and their many contributions (both past and present) to our country and communities. We are, likewise, honored to support and serve older Americans by offering “elder law” legal services to seniors and their families including, but not limited to: life care planning (including providing information and assistance with financial and medical powers of attorney); long-term care planning (including providing information regarding the Medicaid eligibility rules for long-term care); estate planning (including providing information and assistance with Wills and Trusts); estate and trust administration; guardianships; and special needs planning.
Graduation Gift Idea
Graduations, also, abound during the month of May. As such, we have included an updated version of a previous newsletter article, as a reminder that life care planning (financial and medical powers of attorney) is important for adults of any age – including recent graduates. Check out the article and encourage the young adults in your life to be proactive and to create a life care plan.
Should you or someone you know wish to meet with one of our attorneys for assistance with (or to discuss options for): estate, life care, and/or long-term care planning; special needs planning; and/or, other planning matters, please do not hesitate to contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our attorneys. It would be our pleasure to meet with you to review your current planning and/or to discuss planning options for your consideration.
