Wayne County Lawyers Protecting the Rights of Seniors

Advances in medical technology and a better understanding of human physiology have contributed to increases in life expectancy for American adults. While living longer is a generally a good thing, the quality of one's life must also be addressed. For many people, this will require careful and intentional planning for the future. The skilled elder law attorneys at Parker & Erb, LLC are committed to helping people throughout the region protect their rights and provide peace of mind for their clients and their families.

Elder Law Attorneys Serving Brunswick and Wadsworth

As the name suggests, elder law is an area of the law that focuses on the needs of senior citizens and their families. Disabled adults of any age may also benefit from the knowledge and experience of an elder law attorney. At our firm, we understand that making plans for the future can be difficult, especially when confronted with the possibility of diminishing faculties and the reality that you will not live forever. While the road ahead may seem uncertain and unpredictable, a comprehensive estate plan can dramatically reduce your stress and that of your family.

One of the most important steps you can take while looking ahead is to select a person who will be able to make decisions on your behalf in case you are ever unable to do so for yourself. Depending on the circumstances, you may wish to appoint a power of attorney or nominate a guardian to manage your affairs if necessary. Our lawyers will assist you in exploring your options and making the best possible decisions for your unique situation.

Ohio Attorneys for Nursing Home and Long-Term Care Solutions

Current research estimates that up to one half of all American adults will require care in a nursing home or a similar facility at least once in their lives. While many of these will be short stays, some individuals may spend several years or longer in such facilities. Nursing homes and assisted living centers are subject to a host of federal, state, and local regulations which govern patient care standards, patient rights, and financial considerations.

At Parker & Erb, LLC, we know that placing a loved one in a nursing home is a difficult decision. In addition to the personal and emotional challenges, it is easy to make mistakes during the process that could cripple your family's finances for years to come. If you are starting to recognize the need for nursing home care for yourself or a loved one, we can help with residential contracts, long-term care insurance, and all other concerns so that you or your family member can receive the appropriate care.

Government Benefit Programs

Many seniors are eligible for a wide variety of benefit programs and government assistance. Such programs generally include Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, the bureaucratic nature of government programs means that applying and obtaining benefits is often difficult. Our attorneys will work with you throughout the application and review process so that you fully understand your rights and responsibilities. We can also help you make adjustments to your finances and lifestyle as needed to legally maintain your eligibility for government programs.
