The practice of Elder Law includes advance planning for disability and long term care, either at home, in a nursing home or an assisted living setting through exploration of the options of Long Term Care Insurance or Medicaid Planning. Such planning may include an emergency “plan” for asset protection if a nursing home stay is unexpected. We provide assistance with the review and execution of contracts and agreements relative to assisted living situations and advice about nursing home contracts. The attorneys at Cioffi • Slezak • Wildgrube P.C. also work with clients to assure their decision-making powers are appropriately delegated in the event of disability: through powers of attorney, and health care proxies. We also assist families in the sometimes difficult process of Article 81 Guardianships.
