Elder law is a term which describes a range of legal issues surrounding your life at retirement and beyond.
These issues include decisions about who will assist you with your personal and financial well-being as you require more assistance, decisions about retirement living and aged care, and protecting your estate after your death so it benefits those you desire and not others.
Spending some time with appropriate professionals asking questions and discussing common pitfalls which can diminish an estate or your quality of care at this time of life can save you, your family and your friends a lot of heartache and money and improve your quality of life.
If you live alone, and your circle of help also need help, finalising these arrangements will help ensure you are properly cared for and your wishes are implemented.
