Ever wonder what the term Elderlaw means? What does an Elderlaw Attorney do? And why is there a need for such a specialized area of the law? I know as a lay person, my first thought was what other than a will could an Elderlaw Attorney do for me or for my aging loved ones? And then I met Dana and Robert Breslin, Elderlaw Attorneys on Edgemont Ave in Brookhaven.
After one short conversation with them and a look at their website, I realized there is much much more to Elderlaw than I would have ever thought. Especially when it comes to making decisions on another's behalf, what I am responsible for financially if something happens to that person and how decisions made have tax consequences and how other long term planning situations can affect the life of my aging loved one financially and legally.
I can not encourage you enough as a Senior yourself or your adult children to start the process of educating yourself. To see the definition of Elderlaw and find resources, click HERE.
