Our attorneys are proud to assist older adults, their caregivers, and their families in addressing the many issues arising as the population ages.  Our elder law practice empowers older adults to plan for all eventualities, to convey clear and direct instructions to those who will work assist them in aging, and to provide sound legal documents to enable their families and caregivers to carry out their wishes.  Education on Medicare and Medicaid, long term care insurance, the senior housing continuum available in the Capital District and throughout New York State, home care, nursing home care, and protective action for vulnerable older adults is always available.   Our firm will assist with the submission of a Medicaid application, implementation of strategies for asset protection, explain and assist you in planning for how to pay for nursing home care, and offer other strategies for protecting your hard-earned wealth for future generations. While crisis planning is available in many circumstances, planning ahead ensures your wishes are known and affords the greatest likelihood of their being carried out without risk to you.
