Prepare Your Legacy

Longing for a legacy is a natural part of getting older. You want to be remembered, cared for, and leave something behind for your loved ones. Building a meaningful path to a dignified aging process puts you back in control. You’ve considered protecting your assets by safeguarding your healthcare and estate planning, but where to start?

Elder Law Can Be Confusing And Overwhelming

Complex legal terms and paperwork are intimidating, as is finding a trustworthy estate planner to manage the process. When the unexpected occurs, deciphering options for long-term care is daunting and stressful. Uncertainty for your future security compounds worry.

We’ll Take Care Of Everything

The compassionate team at Heritage Elder Law and Estate Planning understands your challenges and simplifies the complicated aspects of administering your assets. These are big, important steps, so we’ll patiently answer your questions and address your concerns.

We don’t proceed until you’re comfortable with every aspect of the plan.

Together, we’ll discover your estate planning and elder care possibilities. With Heritage, you’ll gain clarity alongside a professional elder law guide to help you through any and all estate planning considerations, like:

Powers Of Attorney

What happens if illness strikes or a disability interferes with your capacity to make financial, legal, property, or medical care decisions on your own?  It’s tough to think about, but you need to be prepared for that. Imagine how not having a plan in place could magnify an already difficult situation. Our estate planning attorneys will draw up a document that gives another person the power to act for you. You can even choose how broad or limited their authority is. We’ll expertly arrange for a trusted representative to make appropriate decisions on your behalf so you can focus on getting better and enjoying your family.

Medicaid Help

Medicaid and Medicare are terms we hear all the time, but what is the difference and which do you qualify for? Don’t wait for a medical emergency to learn your options. In stressful times, you and those closest to you need hope, quality time, and a well-crafted plan for your eldercare. We’ll explain the ins-and-outs of Medicaid and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your long-term needs are taken care of.

Nursing Home Help

Did you know the average price of a nursing home is over $300 a day? The cost can be devastating on your estate’s or family’s budget. We’ll help you navigate your nursing home care options and restore hope for financial stability. If you’re already in the vulnerable position of having to transition your lifestyle to an institutional setting, you can alleviate those stresses by entrusting the process to an elder care attorney. We’re here through the adjustment period with qualified nursing home help from the best in the business.

With so much to navigate, you want a trusted veteran-owned law firm looking out for you


Peace Of Mind For The Long Term

You deserve to leave a memorable inheritance for your family.  Whether you’ve saved up a financial nest egg or have sentimental items to pass on, it’s never too early to sort out a purposeful disbursement. Even the best of us are subject to disagreements in the face of uncertainty and unclear plans. You don’t want to tarnish your memory or weaken family bonds because you neglected your estate planning.

Spare your family the trouble of guessing your wishes. Adapting to a new normal or going through grief is overwhelming on its own. Avoid multiplying stress during an already trying time with confusion and disputes by organizing a clear plan for your elder care and estate.

Without an elder law attorney by your side, you risk financial, legal, and relational peril. Your golden years should be free from anxiety. Your wishes should be known and your affairs organized so the focus remains on family needs.

In times of crisis, it’s essential to minimize chaos and find order. Avoid deepening uncertainty by aligning your goals with the help of an elder law professional.
