Advocating for elders is a privilege, not a burden

Over the years, elder law has become a specialized area of focus for lawyers. The field encompasses an extremely wide range of services, each of them in place to protect elders physically, mentally, emotionally and financially.

When people start to age, certain issues begin emerging such as health care, long-term care planning and asset protection to name just a few. These issues require attention so that by the time people are in their senior years, they are able to rest secure in their overall well-being.

As attorneys devoted to elder law, we have developed a unique understanding of issues senior citizens face in Oklahoma. The most commonly understood issue is the need for creating an estate plan to protect the property and assets elders own. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what an attorney can do to aid and protect senior citizens.

Advocating for elders often includes additional preparations such as helping seniors find and access government benefits. A lawyer can also aid families in locating reputable nursing homes or assisted living facilities when necessary. Another way we help our elder neighbors is by educating them about any laws that carry the potential to affect their lives.

Many times, families are equipped to provide all the protection an elder loved one requires. In these cases, a lawyer still fills an important role such as reviewing legal documents regularly and advising families when updates are needed.

When we all share in the responsibility of protecting and caring for our senior citizens, it benefits everyone in the community. Our legal blog and our website contain additional information about elder law in Oklahoma. Please visit us to learn more.
