Pursuing Peace Of Mind For You And Your Family

The Resources And Help Your Family Members Need

Whether you’re looking to establish an advance directive, assist your parents with estate planning, or research the eligibility requirements and application process for assisted living or nursing homes, a qualified Florida elder law attorney can be of great help. Because this can be an emotional process, working with an attorney who sees you more than just paperwork can make a world of difference. At Horacio Sosa, P.A., we are a law firm with heart.

Four Questions To Consider In Long-Term Planning

Planning for the golden years is not necessarily intuitive. Elder law covers a diverse list of concerns, including planning for aging, illness and incapacity. This kind of planning can touch on challenging personal and emotional topics. For instance:

  1. How should you handle moving your independent mother over to a nursing home or another assisted living facility if she doesn’t want to go but needs to go because of safety issues?
  2. What planning tools do you need to put in place to qualify for benefits, avoid harsh tax consequences and maximize income for your loved ones?
  3. How can you advocate assertively in the medical system to ensure that a senior you love is getting proper attention?
  4. What legal levers can you pull if you suspect elder mistreatment, malnourishment or abuse?

We know you want answers to your questions about Florida elder law. We are here to help.
