Life Care Planning

Fairfax Elder Law Attorney

Are you searching for a certifed elder law attorney to assist you with life care planning in Fairfax? If yes, Hale Ball Carlson Baumgartner Murphy, PLC can help. As people age they often develop a need for ongoing assistance with routine tasks of daily living.

People with Alzheimer's, dementia or other cognitive impairments may not be able to stay home alone. It is important to ensure that your loved one has the tools in place to allow you to help him or her should the need arise.

Does your loved one have the appropriate power of attorney in place so that you can help make the important medical and financial decisions? Does he or she have the capacity to participate in this kind of life care planning? If not, it may be necessary to obtain a guardianship or conservatorship.

Comprehensive Life Care Planning

At Hale Ball Carlson Baumgartner Murphy, PLC, our attorneys work with the elderly and their families to plan for the time when it becomes necessary to seek help and to address important concerns when that time arrives.

When a client comes to us because an aging parent can no longer live alone without help, the first question we often ask is whether there are sufficient assets to pay for home health care or for high-quality assisted living or nursing home care. If not, the next step is to create a plan for preserving assets while allowing the parent to qualify for Medicaid. We can advise you on other government benefits, such as Veterans Aid and Attendance.

Another important consideration is whether your loved one is married or not. We can help you set up a life care plan that provides for your loved one's spouse and preserves the assets of the estate, whenever it is possible and practical to do so.

Support for Your Long-Term Needs

Geriatric care specialists refer many of our clients to us. If you need one, we can put you in touch with geriatric care managers, geriatric psychiatrists and financial managers who can provide you and your family with additional support and guidance.

We can assist and advise you regarding family care agreements, long-term care insurance contracts, nursing home contracts, continuing care retirement communities contracts and Medicaid and Veterans benefits eligibility .
