Frequently Asked Questions

Elder care planning is a specialized area of law that provides legal solutions to address the unique needs and concerns of elderly clients and their families. As elder law attorneys, we help Ohio residents navigate various legal issues related to long-term care planning, nursing home care, Medicaid planning, estate plans, and public benefits. A well-crafted elder law plan can protect assets, ensure proper succession planning, and guarantee that clients receive the necessary care without sacrificing their life savings.

An elder law lawyer possesses extensive knowledge in elder law and has demonstrated significant involvement and experience in this practice area. To practice elder law, an attorney must meet strict requirements set by the National Elder Law Foundation, including extensive elder law practice, continuous professional education, and passing a rigorous examination. Choosing an elder law attorney ensures that clients receive professional and compassionate guidance tailored to their specific circumstances.

At Jarvis Law, our elder law attorneys have helped thousands of Ohio residents with their elder care planning needs. We approach each case with a focus on compassion and understanding, recognizing that elder care planning can be stressful and emotionally challenging. Our experience allows us to develop personalized solutions that protect clients and their estates while addressing their long-term care requirements.

Special needs trusts are legal instruments designed to provide for individuals with disabilities or special needs while preserving their eligibility for government benefits such as Medicaid. If your elder care plan involves caring for a loved one with special needs, our elder law attorneys can guide you through establishing and managing a special needs trust, ensuring your loved one’s financial and medical needs are protected.

Medicaid planning is a crucial aspect of elder care planning in Ohio, particularly for long-term care needs. Our elder law attorneys have extensive experience navigating the complexities of Medicaid laws to help clients access necessary benefits while protecting their assets. Proper Medicaid planning can prevent financial strain and ensure clients receive quality care in a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Probate is not always necessary in elder care planning. Through proper estate planning, such as creating trusts and using beneficiary designations, we can help clients avoid probate and ensure a smooth transfer of assets to their chosen beneficiaries. This approach not only saves time and money but also maintains the privacy of the estate. Speak with a member of the experienced elder care planning team at our firm to learn more about your options.

Guardianship may be necessary when an elderly individual lacks the capacity to make decisions regarding their health, finances, or personal matters. Our elder law attorneys can guide you through seeking guardianship for your loved one, ensuring their best interests are protected and their needs are met in a supportive and caring environment.
