Balancing Aggressive Advocacy With Compassionate Service

Elder-Centered Care Planning And Representation

As our bodies age, our care needs can significantly increase. These care needs can have a substantial impact on personal finances and quality of life. At Phillips & Mille Co., L.P.A., we devote our elder law services to helping individuals and families find solutions for senior care needs. Attorney Erica A. Skerl is a certified elder law attorney by the National Elder Law Association and is well-versed in the issues that arise later in life.

A Holistic Approach

While the health care industry focuses treatment on a particular injury or illness, the chronic conditions seniors face often require a holistic approach. We can create a care model based on the changing needs of you or your loved ones. This can include:

  • Identifying care needs, including in-home care, assisted living and nursing home care options
  • Paying for long-term care
  • Determining Medicaid and veterans benefits eligibility
  • Elder abuse protection
  • Other elder-related legal issues

Crisis Planning Measures

Long-term care costs can quickly eat away at the wealth you spent a lifetime accumulating. Medicaid provides financial assistance to individuals and married couples for long-term care costs. The program has asset and income eligibility limits, but we can help you preserve a substantial portion of your assets and meet eligibility requirements using estate planning tools.

If a loved one just entered a nursing home, our lawyers can help you take drastic crisis planning measures to quickly protect their finances from nursing home spend-down.
