Taking care of our aging parents is one of the most important roles we will take on during our lifetime. It is also one of the most daunting and demanding roles we will ever experience. Preparing to care in advance of a crisis gives our parents the ability to have a say in their future, to maximize their independence and quality of life, to improve their chances of aging well and aging in place, to maintain family harmony, and to avoid creating difficult, time-consuming and expensive problems for their spouses and adult children. Dutton Casey & Mesoloras helps families prepare in advance with legal documents to address health care and financial decision-making, advice regarding professional and community resources, assistance navigating long-term care options, advice regarding how to pay for care, assistance protecting assets for spouses, disabled adult children, and adult children acting as caregivers, assistance accessing public benefits, and legal support for adult children acting as a fiduciary or as a caregiver for their parents.
