    Elder Care

    One aspect of people living longer lives is that today's families are forced to confront many issues of physical and mental health among their elderly members. Elder care law revolves around living wills, living trusts, power of attorney, Medicare, Medicaid, insurance and other senior legal issues. It also covers who is empowered to take care of an elderly family member when they are no longer capable of doing so themselves.
