Elder Law Planning Isn't Just For the Elderly

When people hear that I focus on the area of elder law, they assume that means I only help people who are elderly. When I ask them what age fits into the description of elderly, depending upon their age, I get a number that ranges anywhere from age 60 to age 90. Imagine their surprise when I tell them I also have clients in their 40’s and 50’s.

The clients in their 40’s and 50’s don’t come to me because they consider themselves elderly (neither do most of the clients in their 60’s and 70’s by the way). They come to me because they see what financial and emotional havoc a lack of long-term care planning can cause by watching and helping their parents deal with an unplanned long-term care need.

As longevity continues to increase, a long-term care need becomes more of a later years possibility for all of us, so why not think about the possibility in your 40’s and 50’s when there is still time to put a financial safety net in place. Yes, it can be pretty depressing to imagine yourself unable to care for yourself without assistance. Therefore, it is understandable that planning for the day when you have a long-term care need may be the last thing you want to think about planning for.

However, when and if that day comes, planning ahead is going to be what gives you the options you crave (such as being able to afford to pay for the help necessary to live at home or in an assisted living community, rather than the nursing home).

So, for many of my clients, visiting an elder law attorney doesn’t mean they are elderly, it just means they are smart pre-planners.
