There are many organizations that specialize in representing Senior Citizens and Elders in legal matters.

 

Our parents are one of the most precious assets that the god has given to us but unfortunately we don’t realize it. As soon as they get old, we start disrespecting them and sometimes we even leave them to star a new family but we forget that one day we will also get old. To protect the health and the rights of the elderly people the US government has formulated elder law.

 

All those issues that concern to the elder people come under elder law. There comes hundreds of elder law cases dealing with wills, ownership rights, insurance etc. Elder law is formulated to prevent and protect the rights of elder people, their health and economic well being etc.

 

One of the priorities of elderly people is their survival and the money comes from their retirement pensions, the SSI (Social Security Income). This income is mainly given to those of are not able to support themselves. However, to apply and be eligible for this, you have to pass a strict set of rules: –

  • You must be handicapped or above 65 yrs of age.
  • Must be a citizen of United States.
  • Your monthly income must be less than that specified by the state.

 

One of the other major issues that older American people face is their care. Proper medication is needed for them at this age.  Medicare provides some kind of relief to these people at their doorstep itself.

 

If you are in need of an elder law attorney, just give us a chance to serve you. We have an expert team of elder law attorneys and their services are mostly targeted towards the older section of the society at nominal rates so as to serve the society.

 

According to the provisions of this program funding for combined services between state and local agencies for such things as counseling support groups respite and other community based services were granted. These services are focused on the care of the frail and aging members of society. The program also provides services geared towards the family units of grandparents and other older relatives now in the stages of care-taking for related children eighteen years of age and under.
