Elder Law

Massachusetts Elder Law Attorneys

People usually think of estate planning as a process that deals with money and property. However, a subset of the field, known as elder law, focuses on the whole person, not just his or her assets. At Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP, our attorneys help clients and their families develop plans that protect the elderly, preserving their dignity and their estate.

Elder law involves planning for all aspects of an individual’s final years.

Our lawyers help those planning for their senior years develop strategies that will allow them to live their lives with dignity, whatever their health circumstances. We help people structure their estates to provide adequate funds to support the plan. Equally important, we make sure that documents and instructions about their wishes for their care and treatment are complete. Our law firm deals with the material and emotional aspects of becoming older, making sure that clients have a plan for both. To learn how we help people enjoy their senior years as much as possible, contact our Boston law firm.

Our attorneys handle all elder law matters, including:

  • Guardianship, or a court appointed custodian who make ongoing financial decisions in the event of incapacity
  • Health care proxies, which name an individual authorized to make care decisions on behalf of people who are unable to make those decisions on their own
  • Living wills, which specify the type of end of life care desired
  • Long term care planning
  • Assistance with admission to life care or nursing home facilities
  • Durable powers of attorney, which authorize someone to act for the grantor in financial and legal matters and prevents the need to have a court-appointed guardian
  • HIPPA authorizations, which provide authority to another person to review medical records
  • Medicare payments, which need to be accounted for properly to provide maximum benefit

Our elder law attorneys are sensitive to the family dynamics that may influence conversations about these matters. Helping families and individuals plan for their senior years since 1935, our law firm is dedicated to obtaining the best possible situation for our elderly clients or for people looking ahead to their final years. We strive to make those years as dignified and secure as possible. To learn more about our elder law practice, contact our Boston law firm, Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP.
